On May 30, GMA Network launched its newest afternoon drama series Mga Basang Sisiw, inspired by the 1981 blockbuster film of the same title by Agustin dela Cruz film.
Mga Basang Sisiw is topbilled by Lani Mercado, Raymond Bagatsing, Gardo Versoza, Caridad Sanchez, Maricris Garcia with Mike Tan; featuring GMA Networ’s newest discoveries Renz Valerio, Bianca Umali, Kimberly Faye, Hershey Garcia, Miko Zarsadias and Maxene Magalona in her first kontrabida role.
In the series, Froilan Sebastian’s (Raymond Bagatsing) family can be described as picture perfect. However, his wife Olivia’s (Lani Mercado) distant relative Vicky (Maxene Magalona) plots to destroy their marriage by making it seem like Froilan has an affair with her. Because of this, Olivia together with their five kids, Justin (Renz), Faye (Bianca), Shine (Kimberly), Cha (Hershey) and Mickey (Miko), decide to leave her husband. Froilan’s family ends up in a plane crash with only the five kids surviving and their mother’s body missing.
The children return to their father, while Vicky plays wife and treats the children badly until they are forced to run away from home. Under the helm of director Ricky Davao, Mga Basang Sisiw seeks to inspire viewers with the truth that no matter how bad life may seem, help and hope comes from the most unexpected places.
Mga Basang Sisiw premieres June 3, right after Eat Bulaga on GMA Afternoon Prime.
