Returning Kapamilya Rafael Rosell is now set to do his first ABS-CBN drama series after seven years.
He is part of an upcoming ABS-CBN series starring Bea Alonzo and Richard Gutierrez. Rafael was last seen in Dragon Lady, the Kapuso afternoon soap opera that ended on July 20, 2019.
A story conference for the new Kapamilya show was held on July 26, 2019.
Christian Bables and Jameson Blake will also be part of this still-untitled family-romance drama series.
