November 24, 2023, Friday – Award-winning and sought-after easy listening duo Leanne and Naara lend their music to the newest and first-ever Filipino-produced series on Netflix, “Replacing Chef Chico” out beginning November 24, 2023.
Featuring 5 of Leanne and Naara’s original songs including their latest track, “Di Na Babalik,” the soundtrack helps tell the story of a zesty love triangle set against the backdrop of a high-end fine dining restaurant.
“Replacing Chef Chico” is the brainchild of director Dan Villegas, assistant director Joi Bayan, and showrunner Antoinette Jadaone. It stars three of the biggest names in the local entertainment industry — Piolo Pascual (My Amanda), Alessandra de Rossi (My Amanda and What If), and Sam Milby (A Family Affair).
Offering a glimpse into the high-stakes and competitive culinary world, the series’ trailer introduces viewers to the main characters whose lives become intertwined at Hain, a fictional up-and-coming fine dining restaurant that specializes in customizing each dish to mirror their diners’ unique life stories. But things take an unexpected turn when the titular character Chef Chico (Milby) gets into an accident, leaving him in a coma. The fate of Hain is suddenly left in the hands of his sous chef Chef Ella (de Rossi) and a newly hired consultant Raymond (Pascual), who has more than just the restaurant on his mind.
“Replacing Chef Chico” was produced for Netflix in association with CS Studios and Project8.
Headlining the soundtrack to accompany the said series also marks another career milestone for Leanne and Naara who stand to be one of the most decorated contemporary local acts today.
