ABS-CBN has announced 6 new TV shows that will air in the latter part of 2015.
This year's trade launch dubbed as “Shine, Kapamilya” was held at the Marriot Grand Ballroom in Pasay City.
The trade event started with a grand opening act of It’s Showtime hosts giving the guests a sneak peek of their “anim-versary” show to be held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum this Saturday (September 26).
One of the new programs included in the lineup is Be My Lady, the first TV show topbilled by real-life sweethearts Erich Gonzales and Daniel Matsunaga. Expected to air on the morning block, Be My Lady will depict the joys and pains of a relationship between a foreigner and a Pinay.
Aside from the light series, ABS-CBN will also offer a different kind of drama as it soon airs Tubig at Langis. Topbilled by Cristine Reyes and Zanjoe Marudo, this teleserye will tackle marriage problems. This project marks the TV comeback of Cristine after giving birth to a baby girl last February.

In And I Love You So, Julia is cast as Trixie while Inigo plays a musician named Justin Santiago. This teleserye also stars Angel Aquino, Dimples Romana, Benjie Paras, Tonton Gutierrez, and Jay Manalo.
The CharDawn loveteam (Richard-Dawn tandem) will be featured in You're My Home as the parents of Jessy's character. In an interview with ABS-CBN News, Jessy revealed that her character is attracted to JC's character even though she is unsure whether or not he planned the kidnapping of her siblings in the past.
Meanwhile, ABS-CBN paid tribute to the late Fernando Poe Jr., the original star of the classic Ang Probinsyano through its teleserye remake of the said film. Coco Martin and Maja Salvador are reunited for this action-drama series that will begin airing this Monday, September 28.
In this project, Coco will once again play dual roles: twins named Ador and Cardo. Ador is a policeman trying to discover who is the mastermind behind a child trafficking syndicate. However, when he gets killed, Cardo is tasked to continue his brother's mission.
