Marian Rivera’s ‘Tadhana’ turns 5

Marian Rivera is thankful for the continued success of Tadhana, the award-winning GMA Public Affairs drama anthology she hosts — which is celebrating its fifth year with a special three-part anniversary episode which started airing on 8 October.

“Maraming salamat po sa inyong walang sawang pagsubaybay sa loob ng limang taon. Totoo namang hindi laging masaya — may mga kuwento ng pagkabigo, mayroon ding tagumpay. Mayroon ding magbibigay-inspirasyon at maraming pagkakataon,” Rivera said.

“Ang importante, sa huli, laging may gintong aral na makukuha at mas nagpapalakas sa atin. Hindi man laging masaya ang buhay, mas malakas, mas matatag, at mas matatapang naman tayo ngayon sa anumang hamon ng buhay. Kaya saan man kayo dalhin ng ‘Tadhana,’ kapit lang, Kapuso.”

Every Saturday, Tadhana celebrates stories of Filipinos’ triumphs over adversities. Each episode features some of the country’s biggest stars.

It is one of the most popular local TV shows with almost 8 million followers on Facebook. In September alone, Tadhana hit 21 million views on Facebook.

As part of its anniversary offering, Tadhana presents “Baliw na Puso” starring Raymond Bagatsing, Vaness del Moral, Lianne Valentin, Mylene Dizon, Via Antonio, Tart Carlos, Erlinda Villalobos and Simon Ibarra.

The three-part story is written by Adam Cornelius Asin and Erwin Caezar Bravo. Rommel Penesa directs.

The story is about Amy (Dizon), whose life revolves around her baby Marjorie (Valentin), but they get separated by an accident. Years pass as Amy tries to find Marjorie and works hard and becomes financially secure.

Twenty years later, Marjorie remains missing, until one day, Amy meets Dennis (Bagatsing), a policeman who helps her find Marjorie.

Amy and Dennis fall in love, but their relationship takes a dark turn.

Will Amy finally reunite with her daughter? What fate awaits them?

Tadhana airs Saturdays at 3:15 p.m. on GMA Network, with live streaming on GMA Public Affairs’ social media accounts. Kapuso abroad can watch it as well via GMA Pinoy TV.
