Be My Lady to Bring Kilig Back to Pre-Noontime

Lighter stories before noontime have become the norm for ABS-CBN in the last four years.

This Monday will be no exception, as the Kapamilya network premieres its newest series ‘Be My Lady’. Starring real-life couple Erich Gonzales and Daniel Matsunaga, ‘Be My Lady”s story will focus on the duo’s attempts to overcome their cultural differences in order to forge a life-long relationship.

In ‘Be My Lady’, Erich is Pinang, a simple and conservative Filipina. Her mother, played by Janice de Belen, worked in Singapore as an OFW in hopes of reclaiming the land that her husband (Al Tantay) once owned, but things went downhill for the family when she got deported due to an unfortunate incident.

Daniel, on the other hand, is Phil, an independent and liberal Brazilian-Japanese bachelor who lived with his mother (Priscilla Meirelles) in Singapore. Visiting the Philippines in order to attend the wedding of one of his best friends, he then found himself searching for his childhood friend, which also led him to an unlikely first meeting with Pinang.

The extended cast of ‘Be My Lady’ also includes Yayo Aguila, Almira Muhlach, Yves Flores, Karen Dematera, MJ Cayabyab, RK Bagatsing, Devon Seron, Karen Reyes, Mike Lloren, Ana Abad Santos, Perry Escano, Marife Necesito, and comedy trio No Direction. It is directed by Theodore Boborol and produced by Ruel Bayani.

‘Be My Lady’ will replace ‘Ningning’, whose finale takes place this Friday, January 15. While ‘Ningning’ has rated very well in its timeslot, it is clear that viewers badly missed the late-morning ‘kilig’ that once helped ‘Be Careful with My Heart’ become a hugely successful series.

That said, with all the hype surrounding ‘Be My Lady’, expect big things from the show as it gets underway. For Erich Gonzales and Daniel Matsunaga, this series should help bring out their best, both on-screen and off.

‘Be My Lady’ premieres this Monday at 11:30 a.m. on ABS-CBN.

    As of now, BML is now the show to beat on pre-noontime. PITP is scoring single digit ratings during the first three days based on nationwide tv rating reports from Kantar Media.

  2. Gab says:

    Thanks to its higher ratings on its timeslot, Be My Lady is now extended until October 2016. (as per ABS-CBN News)

      • It helps that the two main characters of Erich and Daniel are in relationship in reality, how coincidentally is that. It’s been a hard time for Princess in the Palace to raise the expectations from the fans who watched, maybe it’s the matter of time to think critically in terms of audience impact from now on.

      • Well, it’s been a struggle for Ryzza from Day 1. Even during the talk show era of The Ryzza Mae Show, it was a non-factor, as it lost consistently to Be Careful with My Heart, Oh My G and Ningning.

    • I was expecting the show to reach a similarly long run as Be Careful with My Heart, but ABS made the right decision to end Be My Lady while still at their peak. Expect an upcoming article soon.

      Weird, baket wala pang teaser yang Langit Lupa? Usually nag-start yung mga teaser sa last 3 weeks nung papalitan. Yung The Greatest Love maagang nagkateaser eh kahit naurong pa yung premiere date.
