Dahil sa Pag-ibig Is GMA's New Teleserye that is About Love, Betrayal and Vengeance

10:04:00 AM

Hearing the phrase "Dahil sa Pag-ibig" brings the rhythmic old song. When I say old well, it's now my generation but much further. It's actually a song sung by Anthony Castelo, which my father sung when I was still a kid, that's why the phrase rings a bell.  But my story not about the song but GMA's new teleserye that will air next week, specifically May 20.

Beginning May 20, GMA Network redefines the Kapuso viewers’ afternoon viewing experience with the gripping story about the sacrifices a wife would be willing to endure for the sake of her husband in Dahil sa Pag-ibig. This goes with the line "how far will you go for love."

The original drama is topbilled by the network’s highly-talented and promising stars: Benjamin Alves as Eldon, Winwyn Marquez as Portia, Pancho Magno as Gary and Sanya Lopez as Mariel.

Eldon (Benjamin), who works as an OFW in Saudi Arabia, commits a grave crime that eventually lands him in jail. His wife Mariel (Sanya), who is left in the Philippines, is desperate to earn the “Blood Money” that will bail out her husband. Portia (Winwyn), the wife of Eldon’s employer, is bent on putting him behind bars. Gary (Pancho), Mariel’s rich former lover, offers an indecent proposal that shakes her fidelity to Eldon.

Driven by the fears and sacrifices of every wife who has an OFW for a husband, Dahil sa Pag-ibig tells the thought-provoking tale of the temptations and difficulties that a married couple confront when separated by distance.

Witness in Dahil Sa Pag-ibig how a shocking revelation turned the once perfect lives of the characters of this soap into a nightmare.

Joining the powerhouse cast are Sandy Andolong as Nanette, Mariel’s naïve mother; Dominic Roco as Roger, Eldon’s trusted friend and housemate in Saudi; Devon Seron as Chin-Chin, Mariel’s comical best friend; Kelley Day as Alison, Gary’s sophisticated girlfriend; Tep Tep Pineda as Justine, Mariel and Eldon’s lovable daughter; and Tetchie Agbayani as Clara, Eldon’s strict mother.

Behind this engrossing drama is the creative team composed of Creative Director Aloy Adlawan; Creative Head RJ Nuevas; Creative Consultant Agnes Uligan; Headwriter Christine Novicio; Writers Wiro Michael Ladera and Marlon Miguel; and Brainstormers Nehem Dallego and Angeli Delgado.

The series is another original creation of the GMA Drama Group under the supervision of Senior Vice President for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable; Vice President for Drama Redgie Acuña-Magno; Assistant Vice President for Drama Cheryl Ching-Sy; Senior Program Manager Cathy Ochoa Perez, Executive Producer Arlene Pilapil.

Under the helm of esteemed Director Ricky Davao with Lore Reyes as his associate director, don’t miss the world premiere of Dahil sa Pag-ibig beginning May 20 after Bihag on GMA Afternoon Prime.

Kapuso viewers from across the globe can also catch their favorite Kapuso shows via GMA’s international channels GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV, and GMA News TV International. For the program guide, visit

Discover the World of Sahaya beginning March 18 on GMA Telebabad

4:25:00 PM

Talking about history, culture and heritage, I believe that this topics or stories are shown and describe by the Kapuso Network fairly based on facts and information. And this coming March 18, a celebration of knowing parts of our identity and heritage will be airing as the Entertainment Group of GMA Network fulfils its commitment to bring viewers world-class entertainment with its newest primetime spectacle, Sahaya.

This extraordinary epic-drama series is top-billed by one of this generation’s brightest and hottest love teams - Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix together with sought-after Kapuso leading man Migo Adecer.

Sahaya is the inspiring story of a determined and special Badjaw who rises above all difficult circumstances in life that will challenge her resiliency as she maps her path towards self-acceptance, success, and admiration.

In her titular role as Sahaya, Bianca breathes life into a beautiful Badjaw lady blessed with extraordinary abilities which will lead her to inspire her family and her people, including Ahmad, her simple childhood friend who has always been in love with her, portrayed by Miguel.

Adding a twist to their story is Jordan, played by Migo, the wealthy Manileño who will compete with Ahmad for Sahaya’s love.

Joining them in this intriguing series are talented actors and actresses: Eric Quizon as Hubert, Jordan’s father whose business is coral mining at Sahaya’s village in Tawi-Tawi; Zoren Legaspi as Harold, Sahaya’s father who abandons her mother before he knew that they were about to have a child; Mylene Dizon as Manisan, a Badjaw who fell for Harold and ended up raising and teaching their daughter, Sahaya, resiliency and good values; Pen Medina as Panglima Alari, Manisan’s father and the panglima (leader) of the Sama Dilaut; Debra Liz as Babu, Sahaya’s cheerful grandmother; Juan Rodrigo as Bapa, older brother of Panglima Alari; Ana Roces as Irene, Harold’s loyal wife who will do anything to protect her family; Ashley Ortega as Lindsay, Jordan’s spoiled cousin and the school’s queen bee; and Ms. Snooky Serna as Salida, a loving yet vengeful mother who will be the reason why Manisan and Sahaya will be separated.

Playing very special roles in the pilot week are Benjamin Alves as Aratu, Salida’s son and Manisan’s husband; Gil Cuerva as the young Harold; Karl Medina as young Alari and Jasmine Curtis-Smith as the young Manisan.

To shed light on the culture of our Badjao brothers and sisters, GMA 7 hired consultants and recreated an entire set reminiscent of a real Badjao village in Calatagan, Batangas that will bring viewers a realistic vision of their community—a surprising feat only the Kapuso Network delivers in a remarkable manner. Likewise for this program, the Network sets the bar even higher as it uses for the first time a high-end cinema camera to create clean, sharp and cinematic images.

Sahaya is created through the visionary minds of writers Marlon Miguel and Jonathan Cruz. Aloy Adlawan is the Creative Director and Suzette Doctolero headwrites the show. This grand production is under the helm of esteemed director Zig Dulay.

This original series, created by the GMA Drama group, is headed by the SVP for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, VP for Drama Redgie A. Magno, AVP for Drama Cheryl Ching-Sy, Senior Program Manager Helen Rose Sese, Executive Producer Milo Paz.

Join Sahaya as she brings pride to her culture through her captivating adventures beginning March 18, after Kara Mia, on GMA Telebabad.
