Bro returns to primetime TV to give hope to viewers and comfort troubled hearts in ABS-CBN Entertainment’s newest inspirational series “Huwag Kang Mangamba,” which stars Seth Fedelin, Kyle Echarri, Francine Diaz, and Andrea Brillantes and premieres on March 20 on iWantTFC and on March 22 on Kapamilya Channel, TV5, A2Z, and Kapamilya Online Live.
In these challenging times, the series aims to show how God’s miraculous love is found in the simplest of things and to remind people that they are never alone in going through life’s trials.
In the series, Andrea plays Mira, a blind orphan whose faith and trust in Bro gives her a positive outlook in life. Despite her situation, Mira travels to the town of Hermoso to search for her mother. Joy (Francine), on the other hand, is a rebellious daughter who has completely lost faith in God due to her personal pains and longing for her family’s love.
The two cross paths when Joy accidentally runs over Mira after running away from her family. Both of them escape death and are immediately brought back to life by a miracle caused by Bro in order for them to fulfill His mission of rebuilding the church in Hermoso.
As Mira and Joy try to settle their differences and work together, they will also have to restore the people’s faith in Bro since they refuse to believe in Him after experiencing endless hardships in their town.
At the same time, Joy’s aunt Deborah (Eula Valdes), who is a prominent faith healer with a cult following, will add to the delusions and false hopes of Hermoso by claiming that she is the one who miraculously healed Joy.
Will Mira and Joy be able to settle their differences in order to fulfill Bro’s mission? How will they make people believe in Bro when one of them refuses to believe in miracles?
