TV5 ushers in the New Year with its latest primetime action-drama series, Kidlat. In 2013, the Kapatid channel introduces its crime-fighting superhero, whose human alter ego Volataire struggles, at first, in accepting his "gift." The dashing Derek Ramsay plays the title-role as he braves taking on his first superhero character. The "heroserye" also stars leading ladies Nadine Samonte and Ritz Azul, and character actor Baron Geisler, who plays the villain.
Kidlat is slated to premiere on January 6, 2013, Sunday night, with a special 90-minute film. Promising non-stop action, the "film" will directly take its audience to scenes where its main character acquired his powers. Drama, romance, and even more action follows as the teleserye unfolds on its regular weeknight airing.
