Four women caught up in a twisted murder case that will entangle them in a web of secrets, mysteries, and lies.
Beginning February 28, GMA brings forth a compelling and gripping family drama that will keep every Kapuso viewer at the edge of their seats: “Widows’ Web.”
Filled with intense and heart pounding scenes, the primetime series is headlined by brilliant and talented Kapuso stars – Carmina Villarroel, Vaness Del Moral, Ashley Ortega, Pauline Mendoza – playing the roles of Barbara Sagrado-Dee, Hillary Suarez, Jackie Antonio Sagrado, Elaine Innocencio, respectively.
“How can I say no to this project? Ito ang unang suspenserye ng GMA. When this was offered to me, wala pa akong alam kung sino ‘yung ibang cast, pinabasa lang sa akin ‘yung synopsis and I said yes to do it right away without knowing lahat,” shares Carmina who did not think twice about accepting this project. “The story itself captured my attention kasi gusto ko ‘yung ganon, every time I do something new, gusto ko yung ma-eexcite ako.”
Vaness skillfully steps into the role of Hillary. “Feeling ko naa-adapt ko na yung aura ni Hillary sa totoong buhay. Parang nabubuhay si Hillary lalo dahil sa mga tao sa paligid ko. Hindi ko kaya ito as Vaness Del Moral lang. Maraming salamat sa lahat nang nagtatrabaho sa likod ng camera.”
Ashley, in turn, shares her gratitude for landing the role of Jackie and how she works her way into channeling her, “I’m very grateful na nabigyan ako ng chance to star in this very beautiful project and na-pressure din ako at the same time kasi siyempre, bigatin ang mga kasama ko sa series. Si Direk Jerry (Sineneng), the other cast, karamihan ay first time ko makatrabaho. My character here is very different from my past character in Legal Wives so talagang I have to put effort in it.”
Meanwhile, Pauline reveals how different and challenging her role is in the series, “This is my first ever matured role after ‘Babawiin Ko Ang Lahat’ and ‘Kambal, Karibal,’ so this time, ibang Pauline Mendoza yung makikita nila sa show na ito. I’m really honored and happy kasi binigyan ako ulit ako ng GMA ng ganitong opportunity and sobrang ganda ng proyektong ito. Nung ipinakita sa akin yung story, I grabbed it and I loved it and super excited talaga ako sa show na ito.”
Joining them is a powerhouse cast composed of: Adrian Alandy as Vladimir Mabantog, Elaine’s mysterious friend; Edgar Allan Guzman as Frank Querubin, loving boyfriend of Elaine who will be the prime suspect in Xander’s death; Christian Vasquez as Boris Tayuman, the family lawyer of the Sagrado’s; Arthur Solinap as Emil Banez as the lead police investigator who will handle the case of the Sagrado’s; Bernard Palanca as William Suarez, Xander’s bestfriend and the caring husband of Hillary; Allan Paule as Ramon Innocencio, Elaine’s father and a former policeman; Tanya Gomez as Gloria Querubin, Frank’s doting mother; Mosang as Delia Mendoza, the strict headservant of the Sagrado’s; Dave Bornea as Dwight De Guzman, William’s physical therapist; Neil Coleta as Julius Collado, Elaine’s smart cousin who is also a lawyer; Mike Agassi as George Aguirre, an athletic and arrogant man who wants to be close to the Sagrado’s; Karenina Haniel as Rose Punzalan, the new househelp of the Sagrado’s.
The series also features the special participation of Ryan Eigenmann as Alexander Sagrado III aka AS3 or Xander, the murder victim who is the patriarch of the Sagrado family.
“Widows’ Web” introduces two of the Network’s rising artists Vanessa Pena as Nikki Suarez, Willia’s daughter; Anjay Anson as Jed Sagrado-Dee, Barbara’s only son.
Elaine (Pauline), a hardworking hotel staff, tries her best to spare the life of her fiancé Frank (Edgar Allan) from the murder of his boss Alexander Sagrado III (Ryan), a family patriarch whose widow Jackie (Ashley), sister Barbara (Carmina), family friend Hillary (Vaness) and close associates are all implicated in the case.
Who killed Alexander Sagrado III? Will the murderer get away with it? How will the lives of Barbara, Hillary, Jackie and Elaine intertwine in a web of love, hatred, and revenge?
Esteemed Director Jerry Lopez Sineneng helms this intense drama series together with associate director Philip Lazaro.
Direk Jerry is very proud of his first project as a Kapuso and expresses his gratitude to GMA for entrusting him this series. “This is one of the best scripts I have ever directed. Gustong-gusto ko talaga itong materyal na ‘to. This is really one of the best written shows I have ever directed and I am so happy and proud talaga. Lahat sila sa cast, mahuhusay. I’d like to thank GMA for giving me this cast kasi sobrang sarap katrabaho, sobrang gaan at sobrang gagaling. Makikita niyo naman po pag napanuod niyo na yung mga shows, ang galing galing nila.”
