MANILA – Avid Kapamilya viewers can look forward to a variety of offerings from ABS-CBN from drama and fantasy to a new reality show.
ABS-CBN launched last Thursday its newest shows which will hit the TV screens this 2014.
A video uploaded on ABS-CBN’s official YouTube account also showed several Kapamilya stars who will headline their respective programs.
While some of those launched have already began airing, there are still more shows to watch for. Here are some of ABS-CBN’s projects this year:
Anne Curtis plays the title role with Gerald Anderson and Sam Milby as her leading men. Anderson plays Fredo, Dyesbel's human partner in the comics. Milby, on the other hand, portrays a new character named Liro.

ABS-CBN won the rights to Dyesebel and 12 other titles or characters created by Mars Ravelo in a deal described by the late novelist's son, Rex, as "the best option" for the comics novelist
“Mira Bella” is the debut series of Julia Barretto in a lead role. Its trailer shows Barretto in a forest where her wooden skin appears to blend in. The curse, nonetheless, appears to have its gifts, as withered leaves and flowers bloom again at her touch.
Directed by Erick Salud and Jerome Pobocan, the series also stars Enrique Gil, Sam Concepcion, Gloria Diaz, Mylene Dizon, Pokwang and John Lapus.
This drama series will star Coco Martin and Kim Chiu. As seen in its trailer, the show set is in a hacienda in the 1960s. The show also stars Julia Montes and Jake Cuenca.
Aside from the four young stars, the members of the powerhouse cast include Ronaldo Valdez, Cherie Gil, Angel Aquino, John Estrada and Tirso Cruz III.
Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon
This is a drama series which will mark the TV comeback of Bea Alonzo following her last primetime hit "A Beautiful Affair." Set to portray not just one character on the show, Alonzo said she considers this her most challenging project so far.
