GMA Network produces the most expensive drama in local television history via INDIO



GMA Network opens 2013 with the much anticipated drama-fantasy series INDIO.
 
The grand production features the Philippines’ most respected and bankable stars, topbilled by Bong Revilla, Jr. as Malaya/Simeon/Indio. The award-winning actor marks his first primetime drama project via the network’s most expensive television drama to date.
 
As Senator Bong Revilla Jr. shares, “Malaki ang utang na loob ko sa GMA na ako ay binigyan ng ganito kalaking proyekto para i-alay sa ating mga taga-hanga.  Pinagpaguran ng lahat ng mga tao sa harap at likod ng camera, para mabigyan kayo ng isang bago at napakagandang pagkakalibangan simula sa January 14.  Ang Indio ay isang pagbubunyi sa pagiging marangal ng bawat Pilipino, isang pagkilala sa mga magagandang katangian natin bilang isang lahi mula pa noon hanggang ngayon.
 
Though staged in pre-colonial setting, the value of Indio's beautiful story traverses through generations, as its theme of earning dignity through selfless sacrifice for loved ones resonates strongly even for audiences of today.
 
In the series, the battle of goddess Ynaguiguinid against the colonizers continues as she also fights for the life of her son. Before Ynaguiguinid cast her last breath, she finally passed her supernatural powers to her son. 
 
Witness the action-packed saga of a warrior as Indio unfolds on Philippine television.
 
The Philippines’ brightest stars come together to make this series remarkable: The Sanreals: Jennylyn Mercado as Esperanza Sanreal; Jackie Lou Blanco as Victoria Sanreal; Ramon Cristopher as Don Antonio Sanreal and Michael de Mesa as Juancho Sanreal.
 
Adding enchantment to the series are the gods and goddesses: Rhian Ramos as Dian Magayon; Sarah Lahbati as YnaGuiguinid; Sam Pinto as Lidagat; Rachelle Anne Go as Libulan, Ehra Madrigal as Lihanghin; Ellen Adarna as Dalikmata; Paolo Paraiso as Adlaw; Will Devaughn as Barangaw; Steven Silva as Ribung Kilat, Kyle Jimenez as Santonillo and Solenn Heussaff as Lalahon.
 
Spicing up Indio’s life are: Taga-Ilaya which composes of Jomari Yllana as Tarong; Agot Isidro as Linang; Ronnie Lazaro as Waray Lupig; Sheena Halili as Mayang, Daria Ramirez as old Linang and Dante Rivero as old Tarong with Taga-Ilawod’s Melissa Mendez as Alicia; Vaness del Moral as Elena; Pekto as Pedro; John Feir as Juaning; Marco Alcaraz as Javier, Ping Medina as Diego and Robert Arevalo as Cosme.
 
Portraying very special roles in the series are Maxene Magalona as Rosa; Bea Binene as the teen Rosa; Jillian Ward as the young Rosa; Alden Richards as Malaya/Simeon; Luis Alandy as Hangaway (Father of Malaya/Simeon); Bobby Andrews and Chinggoy Alonzo as Hernando; Lucho Ayala as the young Juancho; Carlos Morales as Mariano Sebastian; Princess Snell as the young Victoria; Winwyn Marquez as Maria; Jon Achaval as Frayle Jacobe and Mark Gil as Miguel Lopez de Legazpi.
 
With the production team’s dedication to its craft together with the guidance of historians from the University of the Philippines Dr. Vic Villan and Dr. Rolando Borrinaga, production designer Rodel Cruz and musical scorer Von de Guzman, Indio will be primetime's most valuable offering.
 
INDIO, is created by the GMA Drama group, headed by Lilybeth G. Rasonable, Officer-in-Charge for Entertainment; Ma. Regina Magno, AVP for Drama; Camille Hermoso, Program Manager and Meann Regala, Executive Producer.
 
From the creative engineering of Suzette Doctolero, with the supervision of Jake Tordesillas and Jun Lana and under the helm of director Dondon Santos.
 
INDIO premieres January 14 on GMA’s stronger and bigger Telebabad block.
