Mar­ian River­aDantes treats Ce­buano fans

Cebu Daily News - - FRONT PAGE -

CE­BUANOS are in for a “su­per­nat­u­rally fan­tas­tic” week­end as Ka­puso Prime­time Queen Mar­ian Rivera-Dantes treats her fans to­mor­row to pro­mote her big TV come­back via GMA Net­work’s new­est se­ries, “Su­per Ma’am.”

Join­ing Mar­ian are her lead­ing men, new­est Ka­puso heart­throb Matthias Rhoads and ac­tor-co­me­dian Jerald Napoles. The “Su­per Ma’am” cast will first visit Gaisano Cap­i­tal South for a mall show at 3 p.m. Af­ter­wards, they are set to bring fun and en­ter­tain­ment to the mall­go­ers of Gaisano Is­land Mall Mac­tan for a Ka­puso Fans Day at 5 p.m.

Set to pilot on Mon­day (Septem­ber 18) on GMA Tele­babad, “Su­per Ma’am” sees Mar­ian breath­ing life to Min­erva Hen­er­ala, the odd but soft-hearted and ded­i­cated high school teacher who loves her stu­dents de­spite their naugh­ti­ness in­side the class­room. Years ago she lost her mother and sis­ter to a tragic ar­chae­o­log­i­cal ac­ci­dent. At the same site, she had a close en­counter with myth­i­cal glow­ing winged-crea­tures and shape shifters called Ta­mawo , and she grew up be­liev­ing that they ex­ist among hu­mans.

As the years go by, the Ta­mawo have made their way into the city and abduct chil­dren to feed on their youth­ful en­ergy. Now it is up to Min­erva’s al­ter-ego—Su­per Ma’am—to be­come a Ta­mawo-slayer and save the hu­man world.

In the se­ries, Matthias plays Trevor Jones, an Amer­i­can ar­chae­ol­o­gist and writer who will fall in love with Su­per Ma’am. Jerald, on the other hand, is Este­ban, the talk­a­tive jan­i­tor at Min­erva’s school that se­cretly loves Min­erva. Be­yond the myth­i­cal crea­tures, “Su­per Ma’am” is a se­ries that her­alds the in­valu­able role of teach­ers as sec­ond par­ents of chil­dren in our so­ci­ety. Min­erva is a role model not only in nur­tur­ing ev­ery child’s po­ten­tial, but also in show­cas­ing and prov­ing that there is a good teacher in all of us.

“Be­fore we get to see Mar­ian’s much- awaited re­turn to prime­time tele­vi­sion, we are treat­ing her Ce­buano fans to two ex­cit­ing events this week­end: a Ka­puso Mall Show and a Ka­puso Fans Day. This is still part of our com­mit­ment to give back to our view­ers for their un­wa­ver­ing sup­port to our pro­grams and stars,” says Oliver Amoroso, Vice Pres­i­dent and Head of GMA’s Re­gional TV De­part­ment. “We are truly ex­cited to share to our Ka­pu­song Ce­buanos what Su­per Ma’am is all about es­pe­cially since we are cel­e­brat­ing the Na­tional Teach­ers’ Month this Septem­ber,” he adds.
