Carlo J. Caparas' Dugong Buhay Now in ABSCBN Kapamilya Gold!

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

A few days ago, we were invited to the grand press conference of "Dugong Buhay". It was initially written and published for Philippine comics and got the chance later on to be foretold in the silver screen. There are several names mentioned in the 80's film that made this an epic one since this was the very first film where Actor-Senator Bong Revilla appeared with his Father Ramon Revilla Sr.

There was hesitation in the beginning because the Revilla's wanted this to be done in movies again and interpreted by Jolo and his father Bong. Telling this on the small screen was another story because no other than ABS CBN took the pains of doing it and produce a teleserye engaging on drama and action which has not been seen that much on TV these past few years. Directors Toto Natividad, Mickey del Rosario said that this was one of the most exciting series to date that they have done because they were given lee way to interpret this freely by ABS CBN after being seen 30 years later.

Here are some shots from the press conference. Enjoy!

Ejay Falcon will play the role of Victor Bernabe / Gabriel de Lara, an assasit trained to mistakenly kill his own family. Arjo Atayde will play the role of haciendero cum matapobre guy Rafael de Lara, Jed Montero as Trisha, and my new crush Yam Concepcion as Sandy De Guzman. They will all make your afternoons worthwhile as they bring you this one of a kind action-drama filled series on TV which started last Monday. I've gotten feedback from friends and family that it's quite interesting and you need to really start watching because the pacing is quite fast.

The creator and director Carlo J. Caparas trusted ABS CBN in making this film for TV and he has seen remarkable hits in primetime and the afternoon which convinced him that this is the right time to release another one of his obras to an undoubtedly great TV station that's got it also released internationally and dubbed in several languages worldwide. He wouldn't mind to be in those ranks and he's seen this as a very promising project with a new ensemble cast to portray the almost true to life characters in this series.

The cast and crew were a little teary eyed when they watched it on TV because they have worked on this so hard in the last few months; they are very close already. I saw Yam Concepcion for the first time and I just was at awe of this gorgeous girl. Yeah I already love her!

I mean who wouldn't if she were this gorgeous!

You'll also be hearing Jovit Baldevino singing the track for this series every afternoon and yes he was really great when he sang it live at the red carpet press conference.

Honestly I haven't seen projects of these two but people beside me were telling me how great they are. I guess I need to watch the series more right?

Not to mention Jed Montero was gorgeous too in person.

Direk Toto Natividad cried a but and Mikey del Rosario is seen here at the back. They will be the ones telling you the story on TV so make sure you guys watch this great teleserye only from ABSCBN Kapamilya Gold!

Sunshine Cruz will be playing the role of Isabel de Lara, a quick role but this is her comeback on TV. There were also very controversial questions asked of her that evening. I need not tell you because it's all over the entertainment sites. Hehe.

She's really gorgeous no? #hindimakagetover

Ana Capri will play Elena. Another character to watch out for because she's one of the few who might die in this film early on. Watch out for that and how she plays into the story. She's a great actress obviously.

Make sure you watch out for Dugong Buhay to be shown Monday to Friday at 3:30 PM which is part of their Kapamilya Gold afternoon slot that brings primetime at these hours.

Congratulations and I'm looking forward to watch this show both for the story, and Yam Concepcion hehe :D but I wish Ejay and the rest of the crew good luck on this show because this is definitely BIG which is no surprise for stations like ABSCBN!
