‘MMK’ Beats Returning Drama Anthology from Rival Network

Asia’s longest-running drama anthology “Maalaala Mo Kaya” ruled its timeslot on Saturday (November 17), beating the pilot episode of its returning rival show by almost 15 points.

Based on the latest data from Kantar Media, the “MMK” episode topbilled by Kean Cipriano and Yen Santos garnered 30.6% national TV ratings, while GMA’s “Magpakailanman” only got 15.9%.

Meanwhile, well-acclaimed actress Dina Bonnevie will make TV viewers cry in “Maalaala Mo Kaya” this Saturday (November 24) as she will portray the role of Bebeng, a dedicated wife and mother to her 13 kids, who would always draw strength from her flower shop business in times of trials. Bebeng and her husband together with their thirteen children enjoyed a happy family life until several tragedies came their way–their eldest son was diagnosed with cancer, their third daughter got pregnant early, their sixth son was epileptic, while her 12th daughter died because of pneumonia. Because of these misfortunes, Bebeng eventually lost her flower shop and almost lost her will to continue living. On the verge of giving up, what will make Bebeng realize that she had to carry on with their life?

Together with Dina in the upcoming “MMK” episode are William Lorenzo, BJ Forbes, Cajo Gomez, Angeli Gonzales, Ogie Escanilla, Miguelito De Guzman, Nicole Ampil, Ogie Diaz, Onse Tolentino, John Medina, and Lemuel Pelayo. It was researched by Joyce Villavicencio, written by Joan Habana, and directed by Nuel C. Naval.
