On Saturday (August 13), Claudine Barretto headlines the “Bisita” episode of Wish Ko Lang as part of the show’s month-long 20th anniversary specials.
Also part of the star-studded cast are Faye Lorenzo, James Blanco, Glenda Garcia, and Rhed Bustamante.
In the special episode, Claudine brings to life the story of Manda. Manda is a happy housewife to Willard (James) and they have a daughter named Hailey (Rhed). But their almost perfect family will be disrupted when their aunt Rosita (Glenda) and her daughter Rebecca (Faye) arrive one day.
Rosita asks Manda if she and Rebecca can live with her first – their house in the province is said to have been destroyed by a storm. Manda is surprised because she has been sending them help ever since. Rosita tells her that everything has been used up. Manda can do nothing but accept them in their house.
Everything is okay at first but Manda notices that Rosita has no plan of leaving soon. Months passed by but it seems Rosita and Rebecca have totally made Manda’s house their own. They even treat Hailey as their helper, leading Manda and Willard to have arguments. Until when can Manda tolerate her visitors?
Hosted by GMA News and Public Affairs pillar Vicky Morales, Wish Ko Lang is celebrating 20 years of granting wishes with the most cinematic anniversary episodes and biggest presents to date.
“Bisita” is penned by Riza del Rio with head writer Erwin Caezar Bravo. The episode is directed by Rommel Penesa. Hannah Precillas sings the theme song “Pag-asa.”
