According to ABS-CBN  President and Chief Executive Carlo Katigbak, the two sound stages are intended to support the network’s efforts towards expanding its audience and content output to foreign audiences.

“We want to bring ABS-CBN content to the international stage, and having a state-of-the-art facility and a world-class production team is a big step for us towards that direction and dream,” Katigbak said.
“What I’m most proud of about this project is that we’re creating Hollywood-level sound stages which puts us at par with the rest of the world,” ABS-CBN Chairman Mark Lopez added.
This project was the brainchild of ABS-CBN chairman emeritus Eugenio “Gabby” Lopez III, who saw that building the studios is the best way to keep in step with the world’s top entertainment companies, which shoot bigger percentages of their programs and films in sound stages and not in remote locations. Moreover, the sound stages also enable the company to manage production costs more efficiently.

“Completing the sound stages represents a very major step for ABS-CBN in terms of our ability to create much better production. Through this we can show the world the best of the Filipino,” said Lopez III.

In line with this, production and support teams for both TV and Feature Films commenced a three-year training program for the stages for Hollywood and the Philippines. The facility was designed by Manhattan Beach Studios together with ABS-CBN Studios Inc. and ABS-CBN University.

The inauguration of stages is also in time for Star Cinema’s 25th year anniversary and just a few days away from the 50th year of ABS-CBN’s Broadcast  Center in Quezon City which was opened last December 18, 1968.
