  • The whole ABS-CBN family mourns the passing of director Wenn V. Deramas, who spent 25 years of his life in creating shows and films that helped the media and entertainment company fulfill its goal of bringing joy and inspiration to every Filipino family.

    Wenn will be remembered for his unbelievable passion for his craft, his comedic genius, and mastery in telling stories centered on family relationships. Many look up to him as a mentor, from big stars to young writers and directors, who have been inspired by his love for his work and his desire to entertain people. His life revolved on writing and directing stories that capture his own love for his family and his optimism in life.

    From starting out as a production assistant, Wenn learned the ropes and successfully made his own name, fulfilled his dreams, and established life-long friendships in ABS-CBN, where he directed box-office hit movies like the highest-grossing local film in history “Beauty and the Bestie,” “Ang Tanging Ina Mo” series, “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin,” “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy,” as well as unforgettable series “Flordeliza,” “Mula sa Puso,” “Saan Ka Man Naroroon,” “Dyosa,” “Kokey,” “Marina,” among others.

    His voice, his vision, and his presence will be missed in ABS-CBN and the entire entertainment industry. But his legacy will live on in the hearts of Filipino viewers who laughed, cried, and were inspired by his films and shows.

    So long and thank you Kapamilya, Wenn Deramas, Philippine cinema’s box-office hit director. (KANE ERROL CHOA, ABS-CBN Corporation, Integrated Corporate Communications)
