Premiering tonight, September 28, the teleseries titled ‘Ang Probinsyano’ which is topbilled by Coco Martin, the recipient of Fernando Poe Jr. Memorial Award at the recently concluded 63rd FAMAS Awards is a potential top-rater replacing ‘Nathaniel’.
Martin will be assuming dual roles in the said series—as PO3 Ricardo ‘Cardo’ Dalisay and Police Sr. Inspector Dominador ‘Ador’ B. De Leon, which is also a remake of the 1977 Fernando Poe Jr. film of the same title. In this 2015 version, Coco is paired anew with Maja Salvador as PO3 Glenn Corpuz and Bela Padilla as Carmen De Leon, the wife of Cardo’s twin brother Ador, who was killed in a human trafficking bust and which brought back the long-lost twin brother Cardo to assume the identity of his dead police officer-brother in order to solve the said crime.
According to Martin, assuming the role of Carlo is much difficult as opposed to Ador’s. Both roles have been assumed by the late King of Philippine Action Films—Fernando Poe Jr.
“Si Ador, akong-ako kung gumalaw. Nguni’t ibang-iba si Cardo,” the box-office actor described his two contrasting characters.
In the cast, Albert Martinez, Agot Isidro, Arjo Atayde, Jaime Fabregas, Malou de Guzman, Joey Marquez, Dennis Padilla, Ana Roces, Marvin Yap, Malou Crisologo, Iza Calzado and Susan Roces are among the powerhouse cast members. The series is predicted to reign on TV Primetime Bida Slots and in Philippine television as well. The said series is in partnership with Dreamscape Entertainment Television and FPJ Productions; under the directions of Malu Sevilla and Avel Sunpongco.
