WGN America’s ALMOST PARADISE, in its first season on Monday nights, is the first American-made series to be both set and shot in the Philippines. Christian Kane plays ex-DEA agent Alex Walker, who thinks he’s going to live as a retiree running a gift shop on the Filipino island of Cebu. However, when local law enforcement finds out about Alex’s past, he winds up getting involved with helping solve cases.

Arthur Acuňa plays Cebu police detective Ernesto Alamares. Alamares is deceptively quiet, but capable of taking down a whole gang with his feet, fists, and a couple of sticks.
