Teleserye King Coco Martin said it is a huge honor for him to be given the opportunity to pay tribute to “Da King” Fernando Poe Jr. through ABS-CBN’s TV adaptation of one of the movie icon’s masterpieces, Ang Probinsyano.
“Even as a kid, only FPJ comes to my mind when I hear people talk about action movies. He is my superhero. I do not only see him as an artist, but also as a real hero,” said Coco.
“I know I can never surpass or even be as good as FPJ. For me, just having the chance to do one of his movies or masterpieces is already a huge honor. I promise to do my best as a big tribute to him,” he added.
In Ang Probinsyano, Coco will give life to the role of the characters once portrayed by FPJ, Ador and Cardo, twin brothers who were separated by fate, but were united by their dream to serve the country as policemen.
From the partnership of Dreamscape Entertainment Television and FPJ Productions, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano will feature the heroism of the country’s policemen. It is under the direction of Malu Sevilla and Avel Sunpongco.
