The title of the upcoming prime time series featuring Gabby Concepcion and Marian Rivera has undergone a switch from ‘Against All Odds’ to the newly christened ‘My Guardian Angel.’
The decision to change the title seems to be influenced by the series’ fantastical elements, particularly with Marian Rivera set to play dual roles, one of which involves portraying an alien character. It’s worth noting that there haven’t been any reported concerns or objections from Gabby Concepcion, who continues to play a significant role in the series.
Upon the revelation of the new title, some observers drew parallels with the international title of Judy Ann Santos’ 2013 series, ‘Huwag Ka lang Mawawala.’ This shift in title might be attributed to the fantasy-driven nature of Marian Rivera’s much-anticipated return to television after a hiatus of four years.
The initial title, ‘Against All Odds,’ may not have effectively conveyed the intended tone given the series’ promise of a unique storyline infused with fantasy elements.
Directed by Zig Dulay, ‘My Guardian Angel’ is scheduled to grace the airwaves in 2024 as part of GMA Network’s telebabad lineup.
The decision to alter the title appears to align more closely with the narrative, especially considering Marian Rivera’s role as an otherworldly being. This makes ‘My Guardian Angel’ a more fitting and resonant choice compared to the originally envisioned title.
The ensemble cast includes Gabby Eigenmann and Max Collins, with Gabby Eigenmann expressing his enthusiasm for taking on an antagonist role opposite Marian Rivera, a collaboration he has eagerly anticipated.
