JUST A THOUGHT: Our fearlessness shall be our secret weapon. – John Green
A number of his drama programs (series) are being shown abroad, around Asia, and even as far as Africa and Latin America.
In Malaysia and Indonesia, Jericho is considered a superstar, ranked side by side the matinee idols of those countries.
ABS-CBN recognizes this feat, reason why network assigns only the most challenging roles for the award-winning actor. The roles carry with them stories that are grand, told in lush settings, and assembling big-name cast members.

BACK TO PRIMETIME: Last seen in Bridges of Love, Jericho makes his way back to primetime by way of ‘Magpahanggang Wakas,” a story of great love standing the test of time.
“Magpahanggang Wakas” premiering this Monday (Sept. 19), tells the story of Waldo (Jericho), who shares a deep love with Aryann (Arci Muñoz). Although both were young, their love for each other is undeniably genuine.
One night, however, changes their story as Waldo accidentally kills a man who attempted to rape Aryann. Waldo is sent to prison.
Feeling responsible for Waldo’s misfortune, Aryann takes on different jobs to raise money to get him out of jail. She meets Tristan (John Estrada) who offers her help.
We pause at this point in the story telling so as not to spoil the fun. Rest assured the plot calls for high-tension acting, with lots of adult, sexy scenes to boot.
