Is the Philippines ready for a drama that tackles issues such as corruption, bureaucracy, malnutrition, illegal logging and political dynasties?


 
We find out this March, when GMA News TV launches its 1st original series and most ambitious project to date -- Bayan Ko.
 
Inspired by the social realist films of director Lino Brocka, Bayan Ko tells the story of newly elected Mayor Joseph Santiago -- who sets out to make a difference in the fictional town of Lagros.
 
The idealistic Mayor faces roadblocks at every turn.  He must learn to lead lazy and uncooperative municipal employees, change the mindset of a mendicant populace and stand up to a powerful dynasty led by patriarch Governor Antonio Rubio. 
 
 
Actor Rocco Nacino plays Mayor Joseph, veteran Pen Medina plays the corrupt Governor, Ping Medina is the Congressman, indie film princess Mercedes Cabral the powerful contractor, LJ Reyes the Mayor’s Chief of Staff, while Betong Sumaya and Love Anover take on roles as slacker municipal employees. 
 
 
Bayan Ko was directed by Adolfo Alix Jr., produced by Eliza Zamora Solis, written by Rodolfo Vera and created by GMA News TV channel head Nessa Valdellon. 
 
It launches this March 10 at 6:30 PM only on GMA News TV Channel 11.
