Ten Little Mistresses, also known as Sampung Mga Kerida in the Philippines, is a story about the ten mistresses of Filipino billionaire Valentin Esposo (Arcilla). They fight tooth and nail for the right to be his wife. However, when Valentin's body is discovered, all ten “kerida” emerge as primary suspects. They must now work quickly to establish their innocence and uncover the real perpetrator before the police find out.
The duo behind blockbuster and critically acclaimed films like Big Night, Panti Sisters, Born Beautiful, Die Beautiful, Ang Dalawang Mrs. Reyes, Bwakaw, Barber's Tales, and Kalel 15 is The Idea First Company's Jun Robles Lana (director) and Perci Intalan (producer).
The possibility that this would be the first Filipino film to be streamed worldwide thrilled director Jun Robles Lana. “I’ve always waited for the chance to do a murder mystery film. And with Prime Video, everything fell into place so perfectly," Lana stated. Despite working long hours working with a pack of big star personalities, Direk Jun expressed how they had so much fun. “We had so much fun even though we worked long hours with a dozen cast members. We just want to make the audience laugh; to show even non-Filipinos that our comedy is universal.”

“When we pitched this to Prime Video in L.A. (California), we realized how massive the global audience could be for our film. But it’s still surreal now, knowing that we’ll be in 240 countries and territories. We’re just grateful that we give justice to the hard work of every world-class Filipino artist involved in the film,” shared Intalan.
Prime Video earlier announced that its first Filipino Amazon Original movie shall be streaming worldwide in more than 240 countries and territories on February 15, 2023.
