Noah is ABS-CBN's dream come true

A well-crafted story. A formidable cast. Highly-acclaimed directors. Hardworking staff and crew. World-class artistry. ABS-CBN has dreamt of fusing all these factors in one drama series. And yes, it has finally come true as the network brings the Kapamilya viewers into a higher notch of television viewing via ‘Noah’, premiering on July 12.

A story arced on love and family, Noah is top-billed by the country’s Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual and ABS-CBN’s miracle boy, Zaijian Jaranilla.

According to one of the directors of the series, Lino Cayetano , both are very much suited for their characters. “It was perfectly woven for Piolo and Zaijian. Mararamdaman mo yung chemistry nila as father and son. And dahil may chemistry na, napapadali ang trabaho ko bilang direktor dahil hindi na kailangan ipilit,” Direk Lino shared.

After the hit primetime series May Bukas Pa, Zaijian is set to play a ‘lost’ boy who grew up with the Ungtas, a group of ape-like beings.

Paired with Piolo is one of the most beautiful faces in Philippine showbusiness, Kristine Hermosa. Piolo and Kristine’s last project together was ‘Komiks presents: Mars Ravelo’s Nasaan Ka Maruja?’ where Piolo had a special appearance. Their reunion in Maruja filled in their 10-year hiatus away from each other after ‘Sa Sandaling Kailangan Mo Ako’.

“When I learned that I’ll be working with PJ (Piolo) dito sa Noah, natuwa ako siyempre. Noong sa Maruja kasi special appearance lang talaga siya so hindi kami nagkasama ng matagal,” Kristine said.

Other cast members included in the series are: Cherry Pie Picache, Nonie Buencamino, Jolo Revilla, Ana Capri, Joem Bascon, Melissa Ricks, Renzo Cruz Baron Giesler and Jodi Sta. Maria.

On the other hand, Noah also boasts its unique set-- a warehouse customized to look as a forest and home of the Ungtas. However, some of the scenes are still taken in Subic.

Sure to take you into a euphoric viewing experience, the story of Noah zeroes in Gabriel’s (Piolo) search of his missing son, Jacob (Zaijian). His travails lead him into a mysterious island called Noah where he eventually sees his lost son whose name is now Eli. Along the way, Gabriel also encounters the Ungtas and Eva (Kristine).

Get ready for a whole new viewing experience as ABS-CBN takes you to the island of “Noah,” directed by Malu Sevilla and Lino Cayetano, starting July 12.
