ABS-CBN has started airing teasers for Dyesebel, the Kapamilya adaptation of one of the most celebrated works of Mars Ravelo. The fantasy series will start airing first quarter of 2014.
"Mula sa karagatan, aahon muli ang kanyang pangalan," ABS-CBN teased primetime viewers announcing the return of Dyesebel on television.
In 2008, GMA-7 did their own adaptation of the said masterpiece of Ravelo starring now real life couple Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes. The show became an instant hit following the success of the Dong-Yan tandem.
Early this year, ABS-CBN has finalized the deal on the network's acquisition of 13 titles or characters created by Ravelo, including the superheroine Darna, the everyman-superhero character Captain Barbell and the love-lorn mermaid Dyesebel.
Angel Locsin was once considered for the role of Dyesebel. However, the actress is now confirmed to play the role of Darna, not in a teleserye but in a movie soon to be released by Star Cinema (read story here).
In this new adventure of Dyesebel, many are now speculating on who will get the iconic role. The names of Anne Curtis, Erich Gonzales, Shaina Magdayao, Maja Salvador and Kristine Hermosa are now getting the buzz to play Dyesebel. The network, however, is still keeping the identity of Dyesebel as a top secret. The one who will play the role of Dyesebel's lover, Fredo, is also something to look forward to.
Dreamscape Entertainment will be the one producing the show so expect this as one of the biggest fantasy series ABS-CBN will ever make. Are you excited? Keep posted for more updates about the show.
