One of my favorite soaps back in the 90s is ESPERANZA.
ESPERANZA is one of the most popular series in 1997 starring Judy Ann Santos. After the success of the longest daytime series (which later) transferred to primetime slot to cater larger audience, ABSCBN introduced ESPERANZA with stellar casting.
ESPERANZA is holding the country’s highest rating of a single episode in a TV series which is 67%.
Since last year, some fans started to speculate that there will be a remake of the series. No official update from ABSCBN about this remake but Jane Oineza‘s name is the most popular amongst the actress to play the role of ESPERANZA.
The series follows Esperanza’s search for her real family. It seems that Esperanza’s mother, Isabel, and father Juan Selgado, got married without the approval of Isabel’s mom. To be together Isabel refused to marry the man her mother promised her to, Jaime Elustre, and Juan left the girl he had been dating at the time, Sandra. As the years went by Isabel gave birth to three kids, two daughters and a son. One day Esperanza’s mother took her, her sister, and brother on a bus trip to visit someone. Due to a bus accident, they got separated and had Juan believing all of them to be dead.
Lets see the latest development tomorrow. Rumor says there will be a story conference about a series.
