Sapphic Novel ‘MATE’ Gets Live Adaptation; Launches Casting Audition

Zense Entertainment announces to adapt Chao Planoy’s novel ‘MATE เพื่อนรัก’ and invites aspirant actors to join as they launch its casting audition!

‘MATE: The Series’ is an upcoming Thai sapphic drama that will be produced by Zense Entertainment, known for their variety shows, namely ‘รู้หน้า ไม่รู้ใคร Who’s That’, ‘บริษัทฮาไม่จำกัด TAGTEAM’ and more, and which is based on Chao Planoy’s novel of the same name. This is not the first time that Chao Planoy’s works have been adapted into a TV series; in fact, Idol Factory has adapted it as its first-ever GL to air on television. Director Phadung Samajarn (Lit) will be in charge of this project, who is known for his work in ‘My Engineer’, ‘Love Mechanics’, ‘Love in Translation’, and ‘Meow Ears Up’.

The production launched casting and is now accepting applicants to play the lead roles, Genlong and Aoey, for which the selected aspirants will be contacted individually to proceed to its face-to-face audition.

SYNOPSIS from MEB: I am Genlong, a woman born with beauty, wealth, and a big brain. Everything about me has to be perfect, especially my ‘someone special’. Nothing ever shook me, until I met my childhood friend, an innocent childish girl like Aoey who gave me lice when we were young. Why do I surrender to a girl like that? It could be those sweet eyes that distracted me. I was upset that I felt sensitive toward my close friend, and she is a girl!

 

As of this writing, no further information has been released yet. For more updates regarding this project, stay tuned to BLtai!
