“The Legal Wife”, “The Wildflower”, and “The Killer Bride” – these are just among the few of Maja Salvador’s most talked about drama series in the history of Philippine television. Due to her acting prowess, Maja truly deserves every bit of success she currently has in her hands.
This October, Maja once again takes on the lead role in the newest television series in ABS-CBN’s global content platform TFC and Philippine streaming service iWant – “Hinahanap hanap kita”. Together with Killer Bride leading man Geoff Eigenmann, the dynamic duo will conquer the hearts of millions of Filipinos living in UAE, as the story evolves particularly in Overseas Filipino Workers based in Dubai. Maja is set to portray the character of Helen who will eventually cross paths with her husband who has suddenly cut off communication with her and her family but remains to send financial remittances. Other celebrities to star in the telenovela include Pepe Herrera, Hannah Ledesma, Pamu Pamorada, and Prince Stefan. The teleserye is set to be released globally via TFC, TFC Online, TFC IPTV, and iWant on the 5th of October in celebration of the 25th anniversary of The Filipino Channel (TFC).
Among the numerous countries where a lot of Filipinos work, The Middle East is one of the most heavily-populated with Filipino overseas workers. From nurses, caregivers, engineers, house helpers, airport personnel, office staff, and even doctors – most of them hurdled the challenges of living in a foreign land just to provide for the needs of their families. Some are already successful while some are just starting their journey.
For more than two decades, ABS-CBN’s “The Filipino Channel” has provided a bridge to reach out to Filipinos working and living in every corner of the world. It aims to help make them “feel at home” even in a far away place by broadcasting local Filipino shows in their home screens.
