MANILA -- Two months after the death of his wife Liezl, actor Albert Martinez is back at work.

In a press conference on Monday, Martinez was introduced as part of ABS-CBN's upcoming series "Ang Probinsiyano" with Coco Martin in the title role.

"Ang Probinsiyano" is based on a 1997 action movie starring the late Fernando Poe Jr.

"Isa ito sa pinakamalaki ng ABS-CBN and this is the most challenging dahil madami kaming eksenang gagawin na first time sa telebisyon. So mag-uumpisa na kami ni Coco ng preparation para magawa namin 'yung requirements ng characters," Martinez said.

"I'm excited to work again. Matagal akong nakapaghinga at siguro malaking tulong din sa akin ito para makapag-usad sa buhay so I'm really excited to work," he added.

Martinez also worked with Martin in the 2013 fantasy series "Juan dela Cruz."
