The term Bagets was coined by William Martinez and Alona Alegre who came up with the idea of the movie.
William Martinez, as star of Regal Films, offered the script to Regal producer Lily Y. Monteverde. The Regal producer, however, rejected the idea saying it would not make money. They offered the story to Vic del Rosario Jr., owner of the rival Viva Films. Del Rosario's condition: William Martinez, a contract star of the rival Regal, should be in the movie. William agreed.
