MANILA - ABS-CBN’s latest afternoon offering "Doble Kara" aired its pilot episode on Monday and immediately took Twitter by storm.
With the hastag #DobleKaraSimula, the series starring Julia Montes was among the top trending topics on the microblogging site.
In "Doble Kara" Montes plays twin sisters Sara and Kara who grew up in a poor but happy family. But when Kara was diagnosed with leukemia, their mother (Mylene Dizon) was forced to give her up to her biological father Antonio (Allen Dizon), who is married to Lucille (Carmina Villarroel).
Directed by Jon Villarin and Manny Palo, the series also introduced Montes's new leading men Anjo Damiles and Edgar Allan Guzman.
"Doble Kara" airs weekdays after "Flordeliza."
