It is not wont in this blog’s nature to vigorously promote a new teleserye premiering on Philippine TV. But I will make a rare exception with “My Husband’s Lover” because never before has such a daring theme been used full-blown for an entire season. Love triangles of the two-men-fighting-over-the-same-woman type come and go. But not the man-and-woman-fighting-over-the-same-man spin. Given the small screen-sensitive subject matter, the MTRCB has approved its airing with a rating of SPG (Strict Parental Guidance) and a late primetime sched. I’d like to see how far they will push the free-tv-envelope, so to speak.
Watch the teaser below:

“My Husband’s Lover” is created by Suzette Doctolero (of “Amaya” and “Indio” fame) and directed by Dominic Zapata. It stars Dennis Trillo (the gay lover), Carla Abellana (the wife) and (ex-ABS-CBN talent) Tom Rodriguez (the gay husband) together with a powerhouse cast led by Chanda Romero, Glydel Mercado, Victor Basa, Roi Vinzon, Pancho Magno, Bettina Carlos, Karel Marquez, Kevin Santos and (the TV acting comeback of) Ms. Kuh Ledesma. It will premiere tonight on GMA-7 at around 9:45PM.
Do watch the pilot week and see if it will merit your continuous support for the next couple of months.
