Two of the Philippines’ top rating and most successful primetime dramas, “Bridges of Love” and “The Legal Wife,” has started airing on Thai television via Thailand’s biggest TV network, JKN.
“We chose to air "The Legal Wife" in Thailand because the content of the series resonates with Thai family and culture,” said Anne Jakkraphong Jakrajutatip, CEO of JKN Global Media Public Company Limited.
“Bridges of Love,” meanwhile, was chosen because of its intense storyline and the interesting dynamics of the lead roles in the series. This gives Thai viewers a new taste of entertainment,” she added.
Anne also shared that JKN Global even produced Thai soundtracks for the Thai audience to easily connect with both dramas.
“I trust Jericho, Angel, Maja, Paulo, and JC for their acting and if they can conquer the hearts of Filipino audience, then it wouldn’t be hard for them to also conquer the hearts of Thai viewers.”
Both produced by ABS-CBN, the Philippines’ leading media and entertainment company, the shows present two different stories of love---- love between two estranged brothers and love between a married couple.
“Bridges of Love,” topbilled by Asia’s drama prince Jericho Rosales and award winning actors Paulo Avelino and Maja Salvador, tells the story of brothers Gael and Carlos who were separated by an unfortunate incident when they were young and crossed paths many years later as two different individuals competing for the love of one woman, Mia.
“Bridges of Love” marked the entry of Filipino content in Latin America when it aired in Peruvian TV station, PanAmericana.
Meanwhile, “The Legal Wife,” topbilled again by Jericho this time with International Emmy-nominated actress Angel Locsin, follows the story of couple Adrian (Jericho) and Monica (Angel) and how the former’s infidelity slowly destroyed their marriage.
