MIPTV Spotlight: ABS-CBN Corporation


ABS-CBN Corporation’s new action drama The General’s Daughter leads the company’s slate for MIPTV this year.

The drama stars Emmy-nominated Angel Locsin as Second Lieutenant Rhian Bonifacio, a military nurse-turned-spy trained by her adoptive father to exact revenge on his enemy. Also from ABS-CBN comes Los Bastardos, which follows the lives of five brothers from different mothers who vie for their rightful place in their father’s heart.

Rom-com duo Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil (Just the Way You Are, Everyday I Love You, My Ex and Whys) are back for another tryst as reunited college sweethearts who try to rekindle their old flame in Alone/Together.

“We believe that these titles will appeal to buyers because of their portrayals of authentic and relatable characters in narratives that viewers will surely connect to,” says Laarni Yu, ABS-CBN’s sales head for EMEA. “We hope to continue actively initiating co-production partnerships with international producers and introduce our artists and talents to the global arena,” she adds.
