Ligaw na Bulaklak premieres on Monday after Wowowee.

Two new ABS-CBN shows that will surely keep televiewers tuned in to the Kapamilya station will premier on Monday, May 26, 2008. These are “My Girl” in Primetime bida and “Ligaw na Bulaklak” in the afternoon block.

Ligaw na Bulaklak will replace the successful daytime soap opera, Prinsesa ng Banyera who bids farewell last Friday. This new teleserye is anticipated to change the face of our afternoons as it showcase a story of love, family and struggles. The story will revolve around an unusual milieu, a horse race track where many people lay bets in the hope of winning more out of life. It combines the elements of social issues and political drama with romance, Ligaw na Bulaklak aims to present a broader perspective of our society that is more than just the usual boy-meets-girl story.

This new show is top-billed by Star Circle Quest alumnus, Roxanne Guinoo who once again will showcase her dramatic prowess as seen in her previous hit series Palos and Natutulog Ba Ang Diyos. She plays the role of Lea Alegro, a “horse whisperer” scorned by memories of her childhood and her journey to fulfill her promise to bring together her broken family despite the odds.

This teleserye also scores a landmark in the other casts’ respective careers. Ara Mina who is making a comeback from Prinsesa ng Banyera, returns as the main villain in Lea’s life. Sid Lucero who made it big for his role as the martial arts master in Kung Fu Kids - now plays a romantic character as Billy, the childhood sweetheart of Lea. Isko Moreno will also make a showbiz comeback as Mon, a horse race "bookie". Rocker Marc Abaya makes his acting debut as Francis, the well-educated suitor of Lea. Coco Martin who is now a Kapamilya, plays the role of Ronel, the brother of Lea. Rounding off the entire casts are Matteo Guidicelli, Erich Gonzales, Carla Humphries, Smokey Manaloto, Arlene Muhlach, Ron Morales, Jaymee Joaquin, Nonie Buencamino, Joem Bascon, Chokoleit, and Jodi Sta. Maria in a very special role.
The show will premiere on Monday, May 26, 2008 after Wowowee.
