It's a big opening salvo for ABS-CBN and Filipinos worldwide as the Kapamilya Network opens the year with a blast via the upcoming action drama fantaserye based on the original script of Ricky Lee.
From Star Television,
Lobo is expected to be an exceptional project because it will be
produced by the same creative group working under the drama anthology Maalaala
Mo Kaya, and brought high caliber teleseryes like Maging Sino Ka Man,
Ysabella, Flordeluna, Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako, Pangako Sa'Yo and
other popular soap operas to the TV screen.
According to some, Lobocan be considered as ABS-CBN's most ambitious project to date. But the stars of this production, Piolo and Angel are more than prepared for the pressure.
In fact, Piolo has been practicing how to fire a gun at a shooting range in preparation for his role as a Philippine Military Academy (PMA) graduate. "It feels good that the network continues to trust me with such noteworthy projects. Thank you Tita Malou [Santos, Star Cinema head] Direk Olive [Lamasan] for giving me Lobo and for giving me an opportunity to work with Angel. I've known her as a co-worker and as an actress. But I'm happy that I gained a friend in her while working on this project," Piolo said.
As for Angel, she has been taking up different classes to hone her skills. "We enrolled in different workshops. May modeling, paragliding at marami pang ibang magaganap, pero hindi ko muna sasabihin para surprise talaga!" exclaims Angel. "It feels good that ABS-CBN is really taking time and effort to prepare for this project because I think we are all one in believing that we have to give our audience only the best. That's why I'll always be grateful to ABS-CBN for this dramatic vehicle."
With barely two months before the teleserye entertains us, the production promises that this is essentially a love story above everything else. FM Reyes (Maging Sino Ka Man) and Cathy Garcia-Molina (You Got Me, You Are the One, One More Chance) direct the new show.
The long wait will soon be over. Come January, everyone will be tuned in and talking about Lobo on ABS-CBN's Primetime Bida.
