AMAYA to Hit Philippine Television BIGTIME!


There's been alot of buzz about GMA's newest and most ambitious "epic-serye " AMAYA".  It's been said that Amaya was thoroughly researched ay paves back from our roots historically speaking. GMA is proud to present that they are the first to showcase an "epic-serye" in prime time television. 

AMAYA is set way back the 1500s and the story starts during the time of Rajah  Mangubat's reign. He is known as a good warrior and undefeated one. Until one day a "Babaylan" or a priestess porphesizes that there will be a day that he will be defeated. This made Rajah Mangubat anxious because not only will he be defeated but this person will also take power over him and that person is a girl who has a twin for a snake. Soon after knowing this. Rajah Mangubat ordered among his village tribes that all pregnant women be killed. But because Datu Bugna's tribe is a long-time ally, his tribe was spared, not knowing that the one he's after is in Datu Bugna's tribe. Amaya here is the daughter of datu bugna from Dal'lang, a slave .And upon knowing Datu Mangubat's orders, Datu Bugna decided to hide her daughter Amaya in a "binukot", a secret chamber and tells Amaya  that her mother is dead. While Amaya's twin snake was thrown away to the forest and is told that the snake will only come back if Amaya is in dire need.This is where the story starts to complicate things.
And it will be good for everyone of us to follow what's gonna happen to future episodes this coming May 30, 2011 at GMA's undisputed Telababad block.

If you want to see how prepared the show is and how much pride they take on their casting. Here are some photos :

Sid Lucero plays the role Bagani, the warrior-prince who will fell in love with Amaya

Amaya is played by Marian River, GMA's Primetime Queen

Mikael Daez plays the role of Lumad, the warrior-slave who covets for Amaya's heart also.

Dal'lang the slave is played Hon.Lani Mercado

Datu Bugna is played by Raymond Bagatsing, The Datu who fells in love with her slave.

Rajah Mangubat was played by Gardo Versoza, the wicked Rajah who will be Amaya's greatest nemesis.

Rochelle Pangilinan as Marikit the eldest daughter of Dian Lamitan, Datu Bugna's evil first wife.
She will also be competing for Bagani's love.

I don't know if the stars are just with me but I got invited to it's premier screening SM The Block and it was my first to attend an event like this. I was ecstatic when I learned that we will be seating along with the Vip's. Oh my God I said to myself this is really is it! Good thing I had my camera with me and I got to take pictures of the artist who are there to support the event.

 I'm glad to see my ex-professor from college Ms. Rustica Carpio who will also be playing
a pivotal role in this epic-serye and Ms. Perla Bautista

And I spotted early seating at the event was the Director of the epic-serye himself.
 Mr.Mac Alejandre

I got so giddy knowing that my favorite historian was there to grace the event, so I took this chance 
to have our picture taken together.
We collect all his history books.
Mr. Bienvenido Lumbera.

Sighted also was famous multi-awarded Director Laurice Guillen with her equally beautiful daughter Irina Feleo. By the one of the cast is also her daughter, Ana Feleo.

"Amaya" Ms. Marian Rivera herself was there to grace the event seated beside Roxanne Barcelo.

As I have said this my first premier night experience, and excited that I was, I cannot keep my butt glued on my seat because I see so many stars literally. And a lot of Marian Rivera's fans showed up. And just like them I just can't wait to watch the episodes and watching the premier will give me the edge since I am among the first to see the pilot episode. Over all I could say is that these epic-serye is well researched based on the dialogues and terms they used. Some of their terms ranged back Pre-hispanic years like "Kiral" (meaning lewd or prostitute)," Uripon" (meaning slave), "Umbo" (term for older sister) and etc. I also admire how grand the setting and where the locations where shot. I will give 5 stars for the nice shots Director Alejandre had made. and I just couldn't help but admired the casting because I could sense that in the coming nights they will leave their audiences in awe because of their acting prowess. Indeed this epic-serye is a "Must-watch" everynight routine for most of the GMA Kapuso fans and for those who will-be Kapuso fans.

After the premier I was in awe , I'm kind-of curious how the fans are relating to this upcoming epic-serye. Are they in awe just like me? And things like that. And wait here's a glimpse of how jam-packed the premier is.

 AMAYA fans are all in pink to support the newest and boldest epic-serye to hit our tv screens.

Here are some of the video interview I did to some of the audience.

Mrs. Erlinda Robles on what she has to say at the AMAYA Premier night.

Another fan Mrs. Edith Santos

I guess I became a fan too after watching this premier and will be recommending this to the others since watching Amaya promotes historical awareness on our children especially nowadays more and more kids are attuned to watching and laying video games and not engaging on more relevant t.v programs like these. I commend the whole staff of this show and GMA for paving way to yet an another "first" in Philippine television.
