For the first time since ‘My BFF’, a local teleserye will kick off GMA Telebabad.
On Monday, May 25, ‘My Mother’s Secret’ will take over the slot that will be vacated by ‘My Love from the Star’ later tonight. This will mark the end of an eight-month lull for a lengthy local teleserye at the said slot, after GMA experimented with a pair of mini-series and a trio of Koreanovelas.
Directed by Neal del Rosario, ‘My Mother’s Secret’ will tell the story of an actress who is secretly pregnant, after which she sold her child in order to continue her showbiz career. A controversial scandal forced her to leave the industry and begin a family with her one-time boyfriend, but a liver problem threatened her husband’s life, and she was forced to find the child she once sold in order to help her husband.
Gwen Zamora, Christian Bautista and Kim Rodriguez will breathe life into the three primary characters of ‘My Mother’s Secret’. Kiko Estrada, Lotlot de Leon, Diva Montelaba, Shamaine Buencamino, Enzo Pineda, Joanna Marie Tan and Tricia Cabais will play supporting roles, while Meryll Soriano and Mark Herras will also appear in a special participation.
As mentioned earlier, ‘My Mother’s Secret’ will be the first local teleserye to kick off Telebabad since ‘My BFF’, which ran from June to October 2014 (‘Seasons of Love’ and ‘Elemento’ were only aired as a mini-series, and not as full-fledged teleseryes). Coincidentally, both series replaced ‘My Love from the Star’ on the same timeslot.
The first two weeks of ‘My Mother’s Secret’ will air against the finale week of ‘Inday Bote’ and the premiere week of ‘Pasion de Amor’. That said, the series will have its work cut out for them as they go up against two ABS-CBN teleseryes in as many weeks.
Once again, GMA goes to a local drama to begin Telebabad. But will it make a difference? Find out next week.
‘My Mother’s Secret’ premieres this Monday before ’24 Oras’ on GMA Telebabad.

maganda iyong story ng my mothers’s secret pero iyon nga kulang po sa GMA iyong promotion. Si Kim Rodriguez po ba ang anak ni Gwen? Ang bata po niya to be a mother. Iyong production na rin ang kulang kumpara sa passion de amor. Mas makakabuti kung tatapatan na lang siya ng isang korean series na may comedy with good dubbing. Iyong puwede sa bata. Passion de amor pang adult ang theme niya.
I only got to know My Mother’s Secret last week. Halatang late na mag-hype ang GMA pagdating sa mga teleserye nila. Samantalang as early as now iniintoduce ng ABS ang mga bagong teleseryes na aabangan later this year. The gap is obvious between the two networks in terms of hyping and promoting their series.
Also, walang choice ang ABS kundi iere ang Pasion de Amor sa pre-primetime slot. Wala pa silang planong tapusin ang Flordeliza at Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita anytime soon. Also, ongoing pa rin ang Bridges of Love. And besides, ABS is no stranger to airing more mature-themed dramas in the pre-primetime slot. You may remember the two Erich Gonzales teleseryes Katorse and Maria La Del Barrio, as well the more recent series Bagito.
Pasion de Amor, judging by its title and storyline, should be aired on a late time slot, preferably after Aquino and Abunda Tonight. Just my opinion.
Then again, ABS has aired mature-themed teleseryes in that timeslot in the past. Katorse and Bagito were examples of that.
Also, unless there is an upcoming reality show like PBB, the timeslot before Bandila will always been home to Asianovelas. ABS simply wanted that for purposes of competing against GMA’s Asianovelas.
