The pandemic, aside from making physical distancing the new normal, has forced the halt of many industries, including film and TV production.

For ABS-CBN, that meant suspending the filming and live staging of its entertainment programs — and offering a temporary TV programming featuring the network's biggest hits.

For Salvador's fans, the TV revamp means seeing their idol three times a day, notably in diverse genres that showcase her versatility, starting March 23.

Salvador was a principal cast member in "May Bukas Pa," the 2009 inspirational series that returned to primetime on March 16.

A week later, two more series starring Salvador in lead roles made their television comeback: "The Legal Wife" (2014) and "Wildflower" (2017).

The mistress drama, where Salvador as Nicole faces off with Angel Locsin as Monica, is currently a Kapamilya Gold program.

The sexy revenge series, meanwhile, airs in the same Primetime Bida lineup as "May Bukas Pa," albeit with a later time slot due to its mature themes.

That three of Salvador's memorable TV roles are simultaneously airing was not lost on her fans, whose excitement translated to the actress becoming a trending topic on Twitter.
