Controversial themed series to replace hit teleserye “Ika-6 Na Utos”

  • “Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka” is set to replace “Ika-6 Na Utos” this January 2018
  • Mike Tan, Yasmien Kurdi and Jackie Rice are all products of Kapuso star search “Starstruck”
  • Yasmien was the First Princess of “StarStruck 1,” Mike was the Ultimate Male Survivor of “StarStruck 2,” while Jackie was hailed as the Female Ultimate Survivor of “StarStruck 3”

“Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka” is expected lead the 2018 offerings of GMA Network. And since it’s really a big shoes to fill for the replacement of hit daytime series “Ika-6 Na Utos,” Kapuso bosses are maybe thinking of giving their viewers a more controversial theme other than about ‘kabits.’

“Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka” according to news was inspired by the story of Ma. Dolzura Cortez, the first Filipino AIDS victim who came out in the open to tell about her life and how she acquired the AIDS virus. She died in 1992. Her story made it into the big screen. Directed by Laurice Guillen, the “Dolzura Cortez Story” was the Philippines’ first movie on AIDS that provided ‘a name and a face’ among the 50 recorded lives that were lost to AIDS in 1992. This movie was utilized as a focus of discussion by some health care personnel to express their thoughts, opinions and recommendations regarding the use of cinema as a powerful tool for AIDS information dissemination.

“Ika-6 Na Utos” obviously made waves this 2017 and it’s undeniably giving ABS-CBN a headache during its timeslot.

Mike Tan, a former mainstay of “Ika-6 Na Utos,” will be leading the replacement show “Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka” together with Yasmien Kurdi and Jackie Rice. His character died last August and was tapped to be the leading man in a new Kapuso series.

This will be the first time Mike and Yasmien will have their own show together.

To be directed by Maryo J. Delos Reyes, Neal Del Rosario and Rado Peru, the three will be joined by Gina Alajar, Ina Feleo, and Martin del Rosario.
