8 May – Actor Tony Eusoff revealed that he is working on a "screenplay" (a play for the small screen, according to his Instagram post) called "Quarantine Raya" in conjunction with the upcoming Aidilfitri celebration.
According to Tony, real name Anthony Joseph anak Hermas Rajiman, the project was produced during the several weeks that the Movement Control Order (MCO) – otherwise referred to as the Restricted Movement Order (RMO) – was enforced in Malaysia.
"Despite businesses slowly opening up, the reality is it's gonna be awhile before we'll be going to the cinemas or flock to the theatres for a show.
"So... [in conjunction with] our new normal Raya this year, we present to you Quarantine Raya: A ScreenPLAY. Yup that's right, it's a play but it's on your screens.
"The Restricted Movement Order has brought up strange feelings, especially when it's close to Raya," he posted.
"Quarantine Raya" follows the Zainuddin family, who is trying to adjust to online meet-ups and figure out how to deal with Raya this year.
With their mother gone and father stuck in Dubai after Umrah, no one is in the mood for celebrating anyway.
The project is written by Honey Ahmad, with Gavin Yap as director, who also helmed the "Dendam Pontianak" movie that Tony starred in last year.
Aside from Tony, "Quarantine Raya" also stars Nadia Aqilah, Siti Farrah Abdullah, Nabil Zakaria and Tina Issacs.
