Francine Diaz and Andrea Brillantes are moving to prime time.

After the success of their afternoon teleserye Kadenang Ginto from 2018 to 2020, Francine and Andrea are set to topbill the prime-time inspirational series Huwag Kang Mangamba.

A full trailer for the drama series produced by ABS-CBN Entertainment was released yesterday, March 1, 2021. And it showed a glimpse of the characters to be portrayed by Francine and Andrea.

Francine plays Joy, a misunderstood teen who resents her father (Diether Ocampo) and his new family after the death of her mother. She rebels and is expelled from school because of drugs.
