Kapuso viewers might soon see a touch of Kapamilya action. A former director of ABS-CBN’s Ang Probinsyano Toto Natividad was tapped to direct GMA’s upcoming teleserye “Cain at Abel.”
“Cain at Abel” is an action-drama primetime series that will replace Alden Richards’ Victor Magtanggol. It will star Kapuso mainstay Dingdong Dantes and Dennis Trillo.
Direk Toto confirmed that he already signed the release papers of ABS-CBN as director of ‘Ang Probinsyano.’ He said that he’s happy that he gets to share with GMA his talent.
When asked on how Direk Toto will direct Cain at Abel, he said, “Ang konsepto ko, gulatin mo, huwag mo silang papanoorin ng TV. Ang ipapanood mo sa kanila, pelikula, para yung makatapat mo, mahihirapan lumapit sa iyo.”
Dantes said he was surprised with the news that Direk Toto will be the director of their series. He told Pep, “Well, napaka-ironic, pero ganoon talaga ang buhay. Minsan, gugulatin ka na lang.”
Even Trillo was surprised but is hopeful that Direk Toto will bring in something new. He said, “Pero natutuwa ako na napunta siya dito sa programang ito [Cain at Abel] dahil alam ko nga, talagang marami siyang maio-offer at nakita ko po ‘yun nung makatrabaho ko na siya.”
Dantes is proud of their newest primetime offering. He once shared with GMA News that he did his own action stunts. The show seemed to be jampacked with thrilling action scenes. Recently, Trillo posted a short clip of how he personally jumped from a bridge without a stuntman.
Cain at Abel will begin airing on Monday, November 19, as part of GMA Telebabad. You can watch the trailer by clicking on the video shared by the Kapuso Network via YouTube:
