The Kapatid Network takes the viewers’ strong interest and relatability to aspirational underdog stories to even greater heights by introducing this one-of-a-kind weekly spectacle, highlighted by musical numbers that embody friendship, ambition and dreams. Moreover, the viewing experience of “Trenderas” will most definitely be made even more unique and exciting as the program captures the raw emotions in all these songs, with the lyrics becoming the dialogue of the various characters. With this, viewers will definitely find themselves wanting to sing along with the characters as they express their emotions thru the lyrics of various popular and well-loved songs.
“Trenderas” will be top-billed by the Kapatid Network’s newest up-and-coming stars in the talented trio of Isabelle de Leon (as Isabelle), Katrina ‘Suklay Diva’ Velarde (as Diva), and Lara Maigue (as Lara)—who play the role of three best friends who make ends meet by selling trinkets on the street. While they are very unique in their own respective ways from each other, it is ultimately their shared passion for music and their dream of one day becoming professional singers that keep them strong despite their daily struggles in life.
The program will chronicle their roller-coaster of a journey towards their ultimate dream as they transform from ordinary ‘tinderas’ to the country’s newest trending sensations—which all begins when a candid video by a random pedestrian capturing the girls’ unique musical performance in the marketplace goes viral.
The dynamics in the program are further made intriguing with the underlying subplot mainly involving Dingdong Avanzado (as Julio), Ara Mina (as Diane) and Tina Paner (as Veronica), which as it unfolds, will definitely add to the drama in the musical. “Trenderas” is also set to capture the hearts of the viewers with the entrance of hunk stars Carl Guevarra (as EJ) and Edward Mendez (as Benjo), whose interactions with Isabelle and Lara, and Katrina respectively, are eventually poised to bring viewers their weekly dose of ‘kilig’.
Meanwhile, sassy and outrageous comediennes K Brosas (as Katy), Cacai Bautista (as Miley) and Kitkat (as Lady) collectively play the role of the notorious “Tres Malditas”, the trio of vendor-villains who will do anything they can just to hinder Isabelle, Katrina and Lara from reaching their dream. Rounding up the cast also are veteran television stars Francine Prieto (as Viveka) and Rez Cortez (as Mother Pearl).
And finally, playing a very special guest role in the musical program, and marking her return to the television spotlight is the country’s one-and-only Superstar, Nora Aunor (as Celestina Cruz), who portrays the character of a famous singer who will ultimately serve as the mentor and inspiration of the three “Trenderas” girls.
And with even more surprises to come, be sure not to miss the grand entrance of the country’s newest trending sensations, as “Trenderas” premieres with a special 1-hour pilot episode packed with all-out musical scenes–featuring some of the all-time favorite hits of the Eraserheads, Ogie Alcasid, Apo Hiking Society, Itchyworms, Aegis and many more–on September 13 at 9:00PM, and every Saturday at 9:30- 10:00pm thereafter, only on TV5.
