ABS-CBN and Dreamscape Entertainment Television’s adaptation of “Ang Probinsyano,” one of the classic films of Da King Fernando Poe Jr., is set to air worldwide via The Filipino Channel (TFC) next week on September 28, Monday (September 29, Tuesday Australian Daylight Savings Time or AEST, New Zealand Daylight Savings Time or NZDT, and Guam time) with Teleserye King Coco Martin top billing the program.
Through the partnership of ABS-CBN and FPJ Productions, “Ang Probinsyano” will be the newest classic that will be turned into a drama series featuring the heroism of the country’s policemen. According to the Queen of Philippine Movies Ms. Susan Roces, her late husband Da King entrusted the library of all his films under FPJ Production to ABS-CBN President and CEO Charo Santos-Concio.
“Ang Probinsyano,” which is also sub-titled in English for non-Filipino speaking viewers, follows the journey of twins Ador and Cardo, played by Martin, who are estranged because of financial reasons. This remained true, even as they followed the path of law enforcement. Ador is a celebrated police officer, with a loving family as a support system. Cardo, on the other hand, loves the solitude of the mountains as a Special Action Forces (SAF) Trooper.
Their lives take a turn when Ador gets himself entangled in a syndicate which leaves him dead. To keep this fact under wraps, Cardo was ordered to assume the identity of his brother and be reunited with the grandmother whom he detests.
How will Cardo fit into the life of his brother, Ador, whose world is entirely different from the one he knows? Will he ever get the chance to avenge his brother?
Joining Martin in the powerhouse cast of “Ang Probinsyano” are Maja Salvador, Arjo Atayde, Albert Martinez, Agot Isidro, Bela Padilla, Joey Marquez, Jaime Fabregas, and Ms. Susan Roces as Cardo and Ador’s grandmother.
