MANILA, Philippines - Pokwang makes a grand comedic comeback as she takes on the title role of Star Cinema’s upcoming family movie Call Center Girl

It should be noted that Call Center Girl is Pokwang’s 11th film under Star Cinema. Pokwang was previously seen in several of Star Cinema’s blockbuster hits such as the tearjerker A Mother’s Story and the horror-thriller The Healing; most recently, she appeared in a very special role in Kim Chui’s Bakit Hindi Ka Crush Ng Crush Mo? and she was also part of the ensemble cast of the romantic comedy 24/7 In Love, which marked the 20th anniversary of Star Magic, ABS-CBN’s talent management arm, in the industry. 

Call Center Girl is a hilarious, smart and laugh-a-minute movie written by Kriz Gazmen and directed by Don Cuaresma.

The movie is centered on Teresa (Pokwang) who is in a desperate race against time to unite her family and win back the affections of her estranged daughter Regina (Jessy Mendiola). By some twist of fate, Teresa (who worked in a cruise ship for 13 years) lands a job in a call center where her daughter Regina is employed thus providing her with the perfect opportunity to rekindle her broken relationship with her daughter.

In the process, Teresa encounters a diverse bunch of people from different walks of life. She then gradually appreciates the concept of extended families. Ultimately, Teresa and Regina learn the true value of family as both discover their individual purposes in life.

Call Center Girl also stars Enchong Dee, Chokoleit, K Brosas, John “Sweet” Lapus, Dianne Medina, Alex Castro, Ejay Falcon and Aaron Villaflor.

Call Center Girl is part of Star Cinema’s ongoing 20th anniversary and will be shown in cinemas nationwide starting Nov. 27.
