SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, CALIF., FEBRUARY 14, 2023 – ABS-CBN, the country’s leading content provider, is bolstering its primetime TV lineup with the launch of its newest teleserye “FPJ’s Batang Quiapo” that started on Monday, February 13.
“Batang Quiapo” is top-billed by Primetime King Coco Martin, who also starred in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” the Philippines’ longest-running action-drama series that ran on-air for seven years.
ABS-CBN’s newest primetime offering, which is inspired by Fernando Poe Jr.’s 1986 film “Batang Quiapo,” stars an ensemble cast of award-winning actors led by Coco, Lovi Poe, Charo Santos, Cherry Pie Picache, John Estrada, Christopher de Leon, Irma Adlawan, and many more.
The story revolves around the life of Tanggol (Coco), a small-time felon who grew up on the notorious streets of Quiapo, Manila. Despite his harsh upbringing because of his parents’ traumatic past, Tanggol remains resilient in navigating through life’s struggles out of his love for his family, as well as his childhood best friend Mokang (Lovi).
The highly anticipated premiere of “FPJ’s Batang Quiapo” solidifies ABS-CBN’s solid primetime viewing on both broadcast and online platforms with currently airing hit shows “The Iron Heart” and “Dirty Linen.”
In “The Iron Heart,” more action-packed encounters await viewers with the possible team-up of Richard Gutierrez and Jake Cuenca’s characters against Ian Veneracion’s mysterious role as Menandro.
Meanwhile, the much-talked about Janine Gutierrez-led revenge series “Dirty Linen” continues to send viewers on a frenzy as it amassed over 700 million total online views across different social media platforms Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, Instagram, and YouTube.
CAPTIONS: (L-R) Coco Martin in “FPJ’s Batang Quiapo;” Richard Gutierrez in “The Iron Heart;” and Janine Gutierrez in “Dirty Linen.”
