PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
"Amid controversial issues of domestic violence involving prominent showbiz and political personalities in the country, ABS-CBN’s top-rating drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya will share this Saturday (September 7) an empowering story of a battered wife who did everything to protect her ‘dream family.’
"The Don Cuaresma-directed MMK episode was given an ‘SPG’ (Strong Parental Guidance) rating because of its sensitive story about a loving and hardworking mother named Blythe (to be portrayed by Denise Laurel) who endured the physical, verbal and emotional abuse of her unemployed and abusive husband Raymond (Rayver Cruz).
"With the intention to support her husband in providing the needs of their growing family, Blythe decided to work. But everything started to change when Raymond decided to stop working and fully depend on his wife.
"How far will a devoted wife and mother go just to keep her family complete? Is love worth fighting for when your own life is in danger?
"Together with Denise and Rayver in their MMK episode are Belle Mariano, Dianne Medina, Janine Berdin, Gardo Versoza, Ynez Veneracion, Marithez Samson, Kyle Banzon, Hannah Flores, Kelly Misa, Wendy Tabusalla, Beauty Gonzales, Natasha Cabrera, Elaine Quemuel and Lance Lucido. It was researched by Akeem Del Rosario and written by Benjamin Benson Logronio."
Maalaala Mo Kaya (MMK) airs Saturday nights, after Wansapanataym on ABS-CBN.
