Suzette Doctolero confident that their new series ‘Legal Wives’ is of ‘quality’

“Ginagawan ng paraan. Sa tapings, sumasali rin ako. At kami-kami ay nag-uusap kung paano s’ya maishu-shoot na hindi pa rin sinasakripisyo ng quality.”

Screenwriter Suzette Doctolero is proud of her work on the upcoming Kapuso show, Legal Wives, stressing that it is of ‘quality’.

“Kinwento ko talaga kung ano ang dapat maging kwento. In fact, sinama namin dito ang Marawi Siege eh, background ang Marawi Siege.

“In fairness naman kahit maraming cast na nandito at maraming talents, pero nagawan ng paraan nina Direk Zig at ng production.

“Ginagawan ng paraan. Sa tapings, sumasali rin ako. At kami-kami ay nag-uusap kung paano s’ya maishu-shoot na hindi pa rin sinasakripisyo ng quality.

“So kinwento lang s’ya nang walang iniisip na limitasyon. Kung ano lang ang ginagawa at tsaka ginagawan ng paraan,” said Doctolero during Legal Wives‘ virtual press conference, Monday, July 19.

The Kapuso screenwriter also shared the inspiration behind the story of the show. According to Doctolero, she aims to tell the story of tribes living in Mindanao.

“Ang konsepto, ako mismo ang gumawa. No’ng ginagawa namin at kami ay nagpunta ng Mindanao, nakita namin do’n na ang yaman-yaman ng culture ng Mindanao.

“Lalo na’t ang daming tribes na nandu-doon at bawat isa ay may mga kwento. So parang nagtataka ako na bakit hindi kinekwento ‘to eh k’wentong Pilipino ‘to. So doon nag-start yun,” she narrated.

Legal Wives is a story of a wealthy Muslim man named Ismael (Dennis Trillo) who marries not one, but three women, Amirah (Alice Dixson), Diane (Andrea Torres), and Farrah (Bianca Umali).



It is directed by Direk Zig Dulay and will soon come to GMA Telebabad, July 26.
