Tonight is the night when Comediennes Pokwang and Melai Cantiveros grace TV screens for the team up to make evening TV audience laugh.
For the first time to, the two laugh-out-loud stars will show viewers the beauty of life and friendship in ABS-CBN’s newest primetime series, We Will Survive, debuting tonight.
Pokwang and Melai will portray two childhood friends who grew up in some town in the Bicol region (this should give the region a tourism boost) who, despite having different personalities, are brought together by life’s unfair certainties and painful experiences.
The team behind feel-good dramas Be Careful With My Heart, Dream Dad, and Ningning – all helmed by veteran director Jeffrey Jeturian – also produced the series.
“That’s how life is, right? No matter what we go through, whatever tragedy we face, we Filipinos will survive,” says Pokwang.
“Viewers need to watch this because it’s a unique offering on primetime. They will get inspiration and good vibes from the program,” Melai adds.
Get to know Wilma (Pokwang), a reserved beauty salon worker and the breadwinner of her family. She faces one of the biggest challenges in her life when her boyfriend leaves her because she is not yet ready to commit to marriage because of her family.
Meanwhile, Maricel (Melai) is a bubbly and charming manager at a hotel who lost her parents at an early age and was raised by her grandmother. She experiences her first heartbreak when she finds out that her first boyfriend is gay.
But together, they will support each other and recover from their personal disasters.
What other challenges will test Wilma and Maricel’s friendship? Amidst all of these, will they still be able to firmly tell each other “we will survive”?
Also joining Pokwang and Melai in We Will Survive are Josh De Guzman, Carlo Aquino, Jeric Raval, Bea Saw, Regine Angeles, Viveika Ravanes, Bing Davao, Alcris Galura, Maris Racal, Joshua Zamora, McCoy De Leon, and Vangie Labalan.
We Will Survive proves that however ugly the world may be, there is beauty in life as long as we are together.
Recently signed Kapamilya Jona (formerly known as Jonalyn Viray at GMA Network) sings the series’s theme song.
It airs weeknight before TV Patrol on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.
