One can just imagine how big an impact a show will create on the lives of its viewers when the lead stars talk about their lives being changed by their portrayals. Last Thursday, September 1, ABS-CBN’s newest Kapamilya Gold offering “The Greatest Love” had its bloggers’ conference and I found myself teary-eyed several times as I listened to the stars’ stories (watch the videos below). Lead star Sylvia Sanchez was joined by her children in the series, Dimples Romana and Matt Evans as she entertained questions from the bloggers.
The story of The Greatest Love revolves around the life of Gloria (portrayed by Sylvia), a loving mother, whose relationship with her children will fall apart when a big secret she has kept for years is revealed. Gloria will soon be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease which will cause her memory to deteriorate. Her relationship with her children is at stake.
According to the program’s creative manager and well-renowned writer, Ricky Lee, “This is a story about second chances. We are all given second chances by life. This is a journey of a mother’s second chance at motherhood, as well as her second chance at her great lpve, even at her age.”
Also part of the stellar cast are Arron Villaflor, Andi Eigenmann, and Joshua Garcia, Nonie Buencamino, Rommel Padilla, Tonton Gutierrez, Ejay Falcon, Ellen Adarna, Junjun Quintana, Aleck Bovick, Luis Alandy, Bobby Andrews, Alex Medina, Mercedes Cabral, and Guji Lorenzana. The series is directed by Jeffrey Jeturian, Mervyn Brondial, and Dado Lomibao.
The Greatest Love premieres today after Doble Kara in the afternoon block.
