WELL-LOVED and award-winning public service program “Wish Ko Lang!” celebrates women’s strength and winning moments in life this September with a series of four fresh episodes bannered by some of the country’s top-notch actresses: Glydel Mercado, Rochelle Pangilinan, Arra San Agustin, Thea Tolentino and Jean Garcia.
Last Sept. 5, Glydel Mercado brought to life the story of a mother who will do everything to save her children from a flash flood that threatens their lives. Joining Glydel in the episode entitled “Nalunod” were award-winning actors Allen Dizon and Therese Malvar.
On Sept. 12, Rochelle Pangilinan headlines the “Inararo” episode, a story about a couple who lost their jobs amid the pandemic and became fruit vendors to earn a living. Jason Abalos plays Rochelle’s husband in the story. Also in the episode are Shayne Sava, Lexi Gonzales and Irma Adlawan.
Arra San Agustin, Thea Tolentino and Juancho Triviño are siblings whose relationship will be tested because of Herlene Budol’s character in the Sept. 19 episode entitled “Nasunog.” In the story, Almira Muhlach plays the mother of Arra, Thea and Juancho.
Rounding off the fresh stories this month is the “Inilibing” episode bannered by no less than Jean Garcia. Airing on Sept. 26, “Inilibing” also features Vaness del Moral and Adrian Alandy. In the story, Lorna (Jean) thought that Efren (Adrian) was the perfect guy only to find out otherwise. It turns out that on top of being an abusive partner, Efren has another woman (Vaness). Lorna will do everything to fight for her life and for her child.
“Wish Ko Lang!” continues to win the hearts of viewers and netizens as well. For the past few months, the program has been airing fresh episodes amid the pandemic. Host Vicky Morales is grateful for the positive feedback the show has been getting.
“I’m thankful to all the people who spend their Saturday afternoons watching our special fresh episodes,” she said. “More than the assistance we get to extend to our case studies and our show’s followers, I am happy that ‘Wish Ko Lang!’ is able to inspire people to hope and help one another amid these trying times.” (PR)
