Mad Dogs Premiers Worldwide Exclusively on HOOQ

I've been watching movies (MMFF entries, etc.) and episodes of new (Supergirl) and old (Kyle XY) TV series on HOOQ since December and I find the app a good source of entertainment. Yesterday, I got an invite to catch an exclusive sneak peek of Mad Dogs, a remake of a British TV series from 2011. I have to confess I got hooked on the storyline!

I am HOOQ'd! Are you? :)
Mad Dogs stars Steve Zahn, Ben ChaplinMichael Imperioli, and Romany Malco. It is a mind-blowing thriller that begins in beautiful Belize where a group of friends had a reunion to celebrate the early retirement of their buddy Milo, played by Billy Zane. The villa setting is gorgeous but the feel of paradise quickly becomes marred with a labyrinth of lies, deception, and murder that puts the best of friendships to the ultimate test.

Can their friendship overcome the dark secrets and lies? Find out! 
Premiering worldwide on January 22 (January 23 in the Philippines), HOOQ will be the first and only digital platform in Southeast Asia to offer the series on the same day as the U.S. The more exciting thing about this is that instead of waiting for one episode to be uploaded every week, viewers will get to watch the action on all 10 episodes dropping in at the same time!

If you are a fan of espionage and mystery stories, make sure to set aside several hours for watching Mad Dogs. I saw the first two episodes and I am really looking forward to knowing how the story would unfold. Stopping after the first would not be enough, promise! Although there are heart-stopping moments, the characters will provide comic relief in cleverly written dialogue and scenarios. That's all I can tell you. No spoilers here.

Aside from this action thriller / dark comedy, HOOQ customers can also indulge in a diverse and expansive selection of over 35,000 hours of movies and TV series including award-winning ones such as Gotham, The Flash, Arrow, and Hollywood blockbusters like ThorIron Man, and many, many more. There are also a lot of Pinoy TV series and movies there as well as Bollywood films.
