The one and only Megastar Sharon Cuneta’s highly anticipated debut in a Kapamilya teleserye is finally happening as she joins the star-studded cast of “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano,” the country’s’ longest-running action-drama series that recently marked its historic sixth anniversary.
To formally welcome the Megastar into the show, ABS-CBN rolled out the red carpet for her on Tuesday (November 9) with ABS-CBN COO of broadcast Cory Vidanes, TV production head Laurenti Dyogi, Dreamscape Entertainment head Deo Endrinal, and “FPJAP” star, director, and creative director Coco Martin in attendance.
It was followed by a story conference where Sharon discussed her upcoming role with Coco and directors Albert Langitan, Kevin de Vela, John Prats, and Malu Sevilla.
News about the Megastar’s addition to the cast has been one of the most talked about and most anticipated by Kapamilya fans especially since the show has featured hundreds of stars in the last six years.
It is also one of the biggest highlights in the show’s anniversary celebration as it continues to deliver top-quality entertainment and important values and lessons, such as love for family and community, to every Filipino home around the world.
What will the Megastar’s role be? Will she be Cardo’s (Coco) friend or foe?
