GMA Network revitalizes primetime block with Carmela, Rhodora X
This January 27, GMA Network launches new shows aimed at strengthening the network's primetime dominance. Perhaps inspired by the success of My Husband's Lover, the network is now coming up with more daring, non-formulaic storylines that are set to challenge the viewers and elevate the quality of primetime TV.
The mysterious CARMELA (Marian Rivera) tells the story of a woman scorned for her beauty and the apparent bad omen that she inherited from her mother. Refusing to be victimized, CARMELA fights back and takes matters into her own hands; sacrifices her own happiness and the looming love for young Yago (Alden Richards) to exact revenge on the people that have wronged her family.
RHODORA X, on the other hand, tells a dark and interesting look at people with split personality disorder. Abused as a child, Roxanne (Jennelyn Mercado) develops a manipulative and scheming side that helped her cope with her trauma. This darker side harbors hatred against her sister Angela (Yamien Kurdi), whom she secretly blames for her abduction, and vows to destroy her life.
Carmela and Rhodora X will premiere on GMA Primetime on January 27 after Adarna.
