Ika-6 na Utos Premieres Today on GMA Afternoon Prime

Sunshine Dizon is indeed a loyal and distinguished star.

Amid a string of talents who switch back and forth between network giants ABS-CBN and GMA, there was Sunshine Dizon. It had been two decades since she rose to stardom via the original ‘Anna Karenina’, and yet despite the ascension of younger stars in recent years, Sunshine stayed loyal to GMA, willing to play a role when necessary.

After her character Adhara was killed off in the 2016 version of ‘Encantadia’, Sunshine was given a new role in the upcoming series ‘Ika-6 na Utos’. The upcoming GMA Afternoon Prime series was a perfect fit for her, considering the recent issues that followed her separation with then-husband Timothy Tan.

In ‘Ika-6 na Utos’, Sunshine plays Emma, a sweet and cheerful souvenir merchant. She was married to a refined pilot named Rome (Gabby Concecpion), but their marriage was disapproved by Rome’s mother Margarita (Carmen Soriano) due to Emma’s poor upbringing.

As a result, Rome had no choice but to fall in love with another woman, a sexy and ambitious interior designer named Georgia (Ryza Cenon). Upon learning her husband’s fate, Emma vows to fight for the right to love her husband, and force Rome to stay away from Georgia.

‘Ika-6 na Utos’ also stars Mike Tan, Rich Asuncion, Daria Ramirez, Marco Alcaraz, Mel Martinez, and Arianne Bautista. The series is directed by Laurice Guillen.

If the story of ‘Ika-6 na Utos’ seems familiar, it is that the series is just another ‘kabitserye’, a subsection of the Filipino teleserye which centers on husbands or wives getting cheated by another man or woman. While most ‘kabitseryes’ air during the late evenings, ‘Ika-6 na Utos’ is a unique exception, in that it airs in the early afternoon.

That said, it will be interesting to see how a ‘kabitserye’ like ‘Ika-6 na Utos’ will fare in an unfamiliar timeslot. Considering that ‘It’s Showtime”s popular ‘Tawag ng Tanghalan’ segment also airs during this time period, a tough challenge awaits ‘Ika-6 na Utos’, so good luck to the people behind this series.

‘Ika-6 na Utos’ airs weekdays after ‘Eat Bulaga’ on GMA Afternoon Prime.

  1. Kabitserye na namaaaan

    OT: nationwide na ang nilalabas ng AGB ngayon kaya dikit ang labanan ng mga program ng ABS at GMA. Wala na sigurong magrereklamo na puro mega manila/urban luzon lang sakop ng agb

    • Nationwide nga, kaso urban areas lang. I still think Kantar is the more trusted firm, even though ABS is the only network subscribed to it, because it covers all areas, not just urban.

      Anyway, I have no hope for these dramas that follow similar narratives. Parang sirang plaka.

    • Kung kabitserye po ito, ang title po nito dapat ay Ang ika 7 utos po kasi biblically ang ika 7 na utos po ay “You shall not commit adultery”… basa po tayo ng Bible…

  2. Hindi ko po ma gets ang title ng palabas na ito, Biblically kasi ang ika 6 anim na utos ay “Huwag kang papatay”…. basa-basa po tayo ng Bible huwag po tayong sunod sunoran nalang sa mga bulag na leader ng simbahan… ika-nga sa Revelation 1:3 Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written in it; for the time is near.

  3. Mali po ang title nito kasi kung kabetserye nga ito ang title po nito dapat ay “Ang ika 7 na utos”, kasi biblicaly ang ika 6 na utos po ay “You shall not kill”… Basa po tayo ng Bible, huwag po puro Facebook…

    • Good point. This was an unfortunate oversight on GMA’s part. I wonder if the network’s management actually go to Bible study on weekends, because if they don’t, this was one huge mistake they will regret.

    • Christian denominations indeed have differences in numbering the Ten Commandments.

      As for Menchu and Raymond, the numbering you commented is based on the Protestant, Evangelical (Born Again), Septuagint and Talmud.

      However, the show title’s numbering is based on Catholic and Lutheran interpretation.

      • Surprisingly, GMA abstains itself from airing Catholic programming save for Holy Week, so it’s ironic to see them use a Biblical passage for a teleserye.

  4. their is no such thing as religion, hindi po ako naniniwala dyan, but my point is what the bible says…? kaya lang naman na iba ang sa catholic kasi tinanggal nila ang second comandment which is “You shall not make for yourself a carved image—any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments” dahil alam nyo na, they are factory of “idol” and they are promoting “idolatry”. At hinati nila sa dalawa ang 10th commandment, ginawaang 9th at 10th kaya kumpleto parin… kaya salamat nalang din sa movie na ito dahil dito nakapag search ako sa google at nalaman ko na ang catholic teachings ay hindi biblical, kaya pinag-iisipan ko na ngayon kung anong gagawin ko….heheh

  5. Starting this week, Ika-6 na utos will now be aired 6 times a week as it now airs on Saturdays. We don’t which show will be bump off the after Eat Bulaga timeslot.
