Bigger, stronger GMA drama-A A +A
Thursday, January 9, 2014
EXPECT no less from GMA Network as it forges ahead in 2014 with a bigger and stronger lineup of forthcoming programs slated to premiere on the first quarter of the year.
First on the list is the afternoon prime series, The Borrowed Wife, which is a story about love and obsession. Revolving around the intertwined lives of Maricar (Camille Prats), Earl (TJ Trinidad), Rico (Rafael Rosell) and Tessa (Pauleen Luna), the series is about how one secret sets their destinies in a shared trajectory towards love and redemption.
Beginning Jan. 20, GMA offers a different love story in the upcoming Koreanovela, Tale of Arang, starring Korean stars Shin Min-ah and Lee Jun-ki. The series tells the story of Arang (Shin Min-ah), the daughter of a magistrate who is brutally murdered and returns from the dead as a ghost.
On Jan. 27, a new and absorbing drama series will redefine and set a new standard in primetime viewing via the soap opera, Carmela, a show that validates every woman’s aspiration to be understood through a beautiful story of love that can never be. It stars Marian Rivera as Carmela, a very beautiful woman who has gone through a lot in life. She stars along with Alden Richards. Playing equally important roles in the series are Agot Isidro, Raymond Bagatsing, Jennica Garcia, Rochelle Pangilinan with Roi Vinzon, Freddie Webb, Krystal Reyes, Ana Feleo and Laurice Guillen.
Another compelling drama will captivate the hearts of Kapuso viewers as the newest primetime series Rhodora X premieres on Jan. 27. The show stars Jennylyn Mercado, Yasmien Kurdi, Mark Herras and Mark Anthony Fernandez.
Also in the offing is Paraiso Ko’y Ikaw. Beginning Jan. 27, sought-after Kapuso teen stars Kristoffer Martin and Kim Rodriguez with Joyce Ching and introducing Phytos Ramirez will make us believe once more that no obstacles can keep us apart from the ones we love.
This February, Max Collins will be paired off with Luis Alandy, who will both redefine what fine acting means via the upcoming afternoon prime series Innamorata. Other stars in the series are Jackie Rice, Dion Ignacio, Gwen Zamora, Michael de Mesa and Rita Avila.
Soon to hit the television screens is Kambal Sirena Louise Delos Reyes who assumes the role as twins Alona and Perlas. Making the story and plot even more colorful and interesting is Aljur Abrenica. (PR)
