ABS-CBN and Dreamscape Entertainment Television’s TV adaptation of “Ang Probinsyano,” one of the classic films of ‘Da King’ Fernando Poe Jr., with Teleserye King Coco Martin topbilling the show, is set to air next week on September 28 in the station’s Primetime Bida bloc.
Through the partnership of ABS-CBN and FPJ Productions, “Ang Probinsyano” will be the newest FPJ classic that will be turned into a drama series featuring the heroism of the country’s policemen. According to the Queen of Philippine Movies Susan Roces, her late husband Da King entrusted the library of all his films under FPJ Production to ABS-CBN president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio.
“Ang Probinsyano” follows the journey of twins Ador and Cardo, played by Martin, who were estranged from each other by financial reasons even as they followed the path of law enforcement. Ador was a celebrated police officer, with a loving family as his support. Cardo on the other hand, loves the solitude of the mountains as a Special Actions Forces Trooper.
Their lives take a turn when Ador gets himself entangled in a syndicate which leaves him dead. To cover for this fact, Cardo was ordered to become his brother, family and all, and be re-united with the grandmother whom he detests.
How will Cardo fit in with the life of his brother, Ador, which is an entire world’s difference from the one he used to live? Will he ever get the chance to avenge his brother and the loss the syndicate dealt to their family?
