In 100 Words: The Millionaire’s Wife Premieres Today

Andrea Torres returns to drama with the upcoming series ‘The Millionaire’s Wife’.

The series, which also stars the likes of Mike Tan, Robert Arevalo, Sid Lucero, Ina Raymundo and Jaclyn Jose, tells the story of a woman who had to choose between two things: love or money, in order to save her life. ‘The Millionaire’s Wife’ will be directed by Albert Langitan, with Roy Iglesias serving as its creative director.

Replacing ‘Destiny Rose’ on GMA’s Afternoon Prime, ‘The Millionaire’s Wife’ is expected to have a great start to its run, considering its opponent is an ABS-CBN Koreanovela in ‘My Love Donna’ (some areas will receive ‘Game ng Bayan’ instead). Still, it remains to be seen whether or not Andrea Torres’ return to drama will pay off.

‘The Millionaire’s Wife’ airs weekdays at 4: 15 p.m., after ‘Hanggang Makita Kang Muli’.

  1. I thought TMW is for next week. If they did, it would end up a 3-day premiere week. Of course, normally, teleseryes don’t premiere during Holy Week, just after it.

    Good thing, I checked and thought it twice before I posted it on the annual Holy Week programming insights which is right now posted.

    Anyway, off-topic: I just read a Rappler article about the industry problem of directors and actors working in longer and harsh working hours. Of course, this led up to health complications that leads to recent deaths Direks Wenn Deramas and Francis Pasion, this is a big concern.

    What’s your stance on this issue?

      • Naniniwala na ang teleserye every weekday mula umaga hanggang gabi ang sanhi.

        To be honest, if I were Carlo Katigbak, I would summon directors, actors, the programming head and PR for a meeting concerning work-life balance and gradual scheduling reforms.

        After the traditional 5-day teleseryes, the new one will be 4-day, then 3 and then 2. This ensures that ABS-CBN will have some space to diversify the portfolio.

        I know it’s not that practical kasi sa short attention span ng mga nanonood. Wishful thinking is I. *sigh*

      • THE PROBLEM IS: Will every Filipino viewer accept that suggestion of a 4-day, 3-day or a 2-day teleserye? That is the question TV networks can’t answer right now since they care a lot for money and ratings.

        As for that suggestion, I would agree with that since we are way overdependent on teleseryes alone, but the problem is still the viewers who are glued to the same five-day teleseryes over and over again. For me, OK na ang five-day soap sa daytime, but not on primetime.
