In the tradition of producing high quality mini-seryes, TV5 brings another highly anticipated primetime program, Nandito Ako, starring international Kapatid star David Archuleta alongside the networkâ€™s home-grown princesses Jasmine Curtis Smith and Eula Caballero. Helmed by popular director Mac Alejandre, the series about young love will premiere this February 20 (Monday) on TV5 primetime.
After the critically-acclaimed Sa Ngalan ng Ina (topbilled by the one and only Superstar, Ms. Nora Aunor) paved the way for the mini-serye format in Philippine television, the Kapatid Network embarks on another series that will capture the interest of younger viewers and the whole family alike. Apart from the three lead stars, the series is also a collaboration of some of the biggest names in the industry, including Gelli de Belen, Aiko Melendez, and comeback actress, G Tongi. G Tongi admits that it was the offer to do Nandito Ako which prompted her to return to the Philippines after settling down in the United States a few years back.
As the American Idol Season 7 runner-up who became an international singing sensation, David Archuleta has earned an even stronger following both here and abroad when the TV5 released the teaser of his rendition of the Nandito Akoâ€™s theme song of the same title, composed by Aaron Paul del Rosario and popularized by Ogie Alcasid and Lea Salonga.
As evidenced by the rave reception on the seriesâ€™ characters both online (frequently landing on Twitter Philippines trending topics) and offline (high crowd attendance in mall shows), Nandito Ako is poised to be another top-rating show of TV5.
Nandito Ako will tell the story of young love, its joys and pains, among Josh (David Archuleta), Holly (Eula Caballero) and Anya (Jasmine Curtis Smith). Josh is an international singer who holds his final leg of concerts in the Philippines. This venture is also a quest to find his real identity, a thing that has been hidden from for a long time. He will meet Holly through one of the promotional activities of his concert. The innocent hearts will brew romance and will soon learn the ways of love. But love has its twists and turns and theyâ€™ll soon uncover realities that will change their hearts and minds. Anya, a boyish and carefree lass, is Hollyâ€™s bestfriend. With a twist of fate, will Josh fall for Anya instead?
Completing the cast of Nandito Ako are Alwyn Uytingco, Ana Capri, Mon Confiado, Ana Feleo, Joseph Bitangcol, RS Francisco, David Bianco, Byron Ortile, and Ms. Perla Bautista.
Donâ€™t miss the premiere episode of Nandito Ako starring David Archuleta, Jasmine Curstis-Smith and Eula Caballero starting Monday (February 20) after Wil Time Bigtime on TV5.
