    Prime Kapamilya actress Jodi Sta. Maria is the lead star in the Filipino remake of BBC’s global hit “Doctor Foster,” which will be known locally by its title “The Broken Marriage Vow,” ABS-CBN Entertainment unveiled in a live online event called “The Doctor Is In” on Friday (May 7).

    Jodi, whose career is marked by compelling performances and highly acclaimed roles across various genres, takes on another iconic character as Dra. Jill Ilustre, the Filipina counterpart of Gemma Foster. A loving wife and mother with an accomplished medical career, Jill begins to see cracks in her picture-perfect life when she discovers that her husband is having an affair with a younger woman.

    Playing opposite Jodi is Zanjoe Marudo, one of the country’s most versatile actors in TV and film, who will be portraying the Pinoy Simon Foster known as David Ilustre. He may be acting like the perfect husband and father, but David is hiding a secret life from her wife – an affair that will change their family forever.

    The marriage-wrecking mistress entangled in this domestic mess will be played by Sue Ramirez, who will be starring as Lexy Lucero, the Pinay Kate Parks. Young, sexy, and wealthy, Lexy is used to getting what she wants and will not settle for less in love, even if it is with a married man.

    Completing the main cast of “The Broken Marriage Vow” is Zaijian Jaranilla, who will be filling the role of Gio Ilustre, the Filipino Tom Foster. The only son of Jill and David, Gio falls victim to his parents’ emotional tug-of-war.

    Bringing this extraordinary story to life is one of the most prolific female directors working in the country today, Concepcion Macatuno, whose body of work is known for its emphasis on empowered Filipino women. Direk Connie brings her expertise and experience to “The Broken Marriage Vow,” about a woman who, in the face of betrayal, finds strength and courage to protect what she loves.

    “The Broken Marriage Vow” is the sixth local adaptation of “Doctor Foster” following its adaptations in France, Russia, Turkey, India, and South Korea, whose “The World of the Married” would become the country’s highest rated cable TV drama.

    Watch out for Zanjoe, Sue, Zaijian, and Jodi in “The Broken Marriage Vow,” to be produced by Dreamscape Entertainment, soon on ABS-CBN platforms.
