ABS-CBN is raising the ‘gigil level’ for its highly anticipated drama series “The Broken Marriage Vow” with the release of a new plug featuring Zanjoe Marudo in the lead role of an irresistible yet manipulative charmer whose secret extramarital affair destroys his family.
The video gives a glimpse of David Ilustre’s (Zanjoe) dual personality and web of lies as he juggles his relationships with his wife Dra. Jill Ilustre (Jodi Sta. Maria) and his younger mistress Lexy Lucero (Sue Ramirez).
David, an architect, seems to be the perfect husband and father to Jill and their only son Gio (Zaijian Jaranilla), lavishing them with love and affection.
When Jill, who is already extremely suspicious about David’s actions, confronts him about his affair, he casually fools her by reassuring her of his commitment and denying outright that there’s another woman.
“Kaya kitang tingnan sa mata nang diretso. Wala akong ibang babae (I can look at you straight in the eye and say, there is no other woman),” David calmly says.
The teaser also gives a sneak peek of David’s romance with Lexy and their secret rendezvous. “Sa ‘yo ko lang nakikita ‘yung halaga ko. Kung mawala ka sa akin, mamamatay ako (You’re the only one who makes me realize my worth. I cannot afford to lose you),” David lovingly proclaims to Lexy.
In previous interviews, Zanjoe admitted that viewers’ blood will start racing as a result of their annoyance with his character and his twisted games that toy with his wife’s emotions and eventually wrecks their family.
“The Broken Marriage Vow,” which is shot entirely in Baguio, also stars Jane Oineza, Angeli Bayani, Bianca Manalo, Ketchup Eusebio, Rachel Alejandro, Art Acuña, Empress Schuck, Joem Bascon, Brent Manalo, Malou Crisologo, Franco Laurel, Sandino Martin, Lao Rodriguez, Jet Gaitan, Jie Anne Armero, Migs Almendras, Avery Clyde, and JB Agustin, with the special participation of Susan Africa and Ronnie Lazaro.
Directed by Concepcion Macatuno and Andoy Ranay, the ABS-CBN series is the Philippine adaptation of the hit BBC series “Doctor Foster.”
The series will premiere first on the iWantTFC app (iOs and Android) and on iwanttfc.com on January 22, two days ahead of its TV broadcast. Watch it also on January 24 at 8:40 PM on Kapamilya Channel, TV5, A2Z, Kapamilya Online Live on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s YouTube channel and Facebook page, iWantTFC, and TFC.
