It was an adrenaline-pumping pilot week for Coco Martin’s latest television series FPJ’s Batang Quiapo after it racked up over 44 million total digital views on Kapamilya Online Live and iWantTFC.
The first few action-packed episodes are only a glimpse of what’s to come as viewers brace for even more exciting encounters in the series with the arrival of Supremo (Lito Lapid), an ex-convict, and Greg, RK Bagatsing’s new character.
Greg will bring more problems into the life of Ramon (Christopher de Leon), a high-profile fugitive who recently escaped from prison with the help of Don Julio (Tommy Abuel), his father who is a business tycoon running one of the biggest criminal syndicates in the country.
With Ramon on the loose, he only has evil intentions and is hell-bent on finding Tanggol (Coco), his only son, whom he hopes would continue his legacy as a notorious drug lord. Because of this, Tanggol’s life may be in great danger since he is completely unaware that his real father is Ramon, the same man who mercilessly raped his mother Marites (Cherry Pie Picache).
FPJ’s Batang Quiapo, which is inspired by the original story of Regal Films, airs on weeknights at 8:00 p.m. on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, TV5, iWantTFC, and Kapamilya Online Live on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel and Facebook page.
