ABS-CBN transforms "Pieta" into a modern daytime series
Carlo J. Caparas' "Pieta" gathered a strong following more than two decades ago as a widely-followed komiks series, which eventually led to two blockbuster movie adaptations. Now, ABS-CBN is all set to give this classic a modern appeal by producing a television series with the same title.
"Pieta" will soon air on the channel's Hapontastic block. It will star Ryan Agoncillo as the troubled son Rigor and Cherie Gil as the loving mother Amanda. The series will explain further how Rigor was changed by unfortunate events. Will the love of his mother be enough to change his ways? The first "Pieta" film earned five major trophies in the Film Academy of the Philippines Awards and established its lead star Ace Vergel as the country's original "bad boy." Witness the transforming power of love in ABS-CBN's "Pieta", which soon airs on the Hapontastic Block.
