Just as GMA is warming up with their value-oriented teleserye in ‘Nino’, ABS-CBN decides to counter with one of their own.
Enter ‘Hawak Kamay’, the Kapamilya network’s newest teleserye that is set to debut this Monday. The series, starring Piolo Pascual, Iza Calzado, Zaijan Jaranilla and Xyriel Manabat, Andrea Brillantes and Yesha Camille, will replace ‘Dyesebel’.
The Anne Curtis-starred series has been a ratings winner since it debuted on March 17. ‘Dyesebel’ defeated rivals ‘Kambal Sirena’ and ‘Nino’ during its five-month run.
In ‘Hawak Kamay’, Pascual plays a frustrated musician turned guardian named Gin. He was tasked to take care of three orphans named Emong (Jaranilla), Dara (Manabat) and Ningning (Camille), who lost their parents in a car crash.
Throughout the series, Gin would evolve from a reluctant to a responsible guardian who is determined to keep all of his orphans together, despite enduring serious trials. Along the way, Gin’s life would change with the help of Bianca (Calzado), a lawyer who helped arrange the adoption, and her sister Lorrie (Brillantes), who would develop a friendship with the three orphans.
‘Hawak Kamay’ is named after the popular song recorded by Yeng Constantino in the late 2000s. The song was remade by Piolo Pascual specifically for the series.
ABS-CBN is no stranger to producing successful value-oriented series. After all, they produced winners in ‘May Bukas Pa’, ‘100 Days to Heaven’, ‘Budoy’ and Honesto’, all of which earned high ratings and critical acclaim. The success of these teleseryes should add some pressure on ‘Hawak Kamay’, but considering the network has been winning the primetime race of late, it should not pose a problem to the new series.
‘Hawak Kamay’ premieres this July 21, after ‘TV Patrol’. The teaser to the upcoming series can be viewed below.

parang mas maganda pa ang dyesebel sa 7 kesa sa 2
Yung Dyesebel ni Anne kasi, ginawang ‘child-friendly’. Hindi naka-topless si Anne unlike previous Dyesebels; yung boobs kasi niya ay tinakpan ng prosthetics.
And yes, that’s not the Dyesebel we come to know. Parang they took this modernization all too far. Hindi rin talaga naging maganda ang treatment ng Dos sa Dyesebel, all thanks to poor scriptwriting.
Ralph, was this a factor on why Dyesebel with Anne ended so soon? Marian Rivera’s version lasted longer.
I read the comments on PinoyExchange, and the commenters agree on one thing: that the scriptwriting was poor and the ending was rushed. This despite the high ratings and social media impact of the series.
Also, Typhoon Glenda had a huge impact on its finale week. Wednesday’s episode was never aired due to technical problems, and instead they re-aired Tuesday’s episode. They rushed to edit some scenes just to make it to the finale.
