Drama series to premiere on March 31

MANILA - A new trailer for the upcoming afternoon drama series starring Meg Imperial and Ellen Adarna has been released.

The nearly-three minute video, posted online by ABS-CBN, offers a glimpse into the history of lead character Ayla (Imperial), who has hypertrichosis, a medical condition where she is covered with hair from head to toe.

Hidden from her peers for most of her early years because of her condition, Ayla longs for the feeling of being wanted.

Harboring this need, Ayla shaves off her excess hair and braves the outside world. Here she meets Jeff, a doctor portrayed by actor JC de Vera.

Unknown to Ayla, however, Jeff turns out to be her childhood friend, Jepoy, who she fell in love with and the first to ever show her kindness despite her looks.

"Moon of Desire," which also marks Adarna's first project as a Kapamilya, will also star Dominique Roque, Miko Raval and Carmi Martin.

Directed by FM Reyes and Ruel S. Bayani ("Budoy," Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin"), the drama series is set to premiere March 31 on Kapamilya Gold.
