When love, deceit and revenge get in the way of friendship, the blinding hatred that follows can lead a person to hurt those who are closest to his heart. This is the premise of a timeless story that captivated millions of Filipino viewers who tuned in to the most successful afternoon soap that first aired on Philippine TV 20 years ago – Valiente.
After a successful run that spanned five years on two major networks, Valiente makes a grand comeback to capture once more the hearts of Filipinos who grew up watching the series and the new generation of viewers who would surely relate to the classic story two decades after.
With its one-of-a-kind rendition of the classic drama series, TV5’s Valiente was recognized by the Entertainment Press Society (ENPRESS, Inc.) as Outstanding Adapted Drama Series at the recent Golden Screen TV Awards held last March 2.
The most successful teleserye is helmed by multi-awarded director Joel Lamangan with a powerhouse cast of this generation’s most bankable actors, including Kapatid stars Oyo Sotto, Nadine Samonte, Niña Jose and JC De Vera, with the most-respected and highly acclaimed actors in the industry:Mark Gil, Jaclyn Jose, Gina Alajar and the original Valiente himself, Michael de Mesa.
