Meet the first family in ‘Tanging Yaman’

ABS-CBN proudly presents one of its first quarter offerings for the year 2010 — “Tanging Yaman”, a program that will illustrate how a first family struggles to achieve true happiness.

Erich Gonzales topbills ‘Tanging Yaman’, her second major project after the hit primetime series ‘Katorse’. As she breathes life to the character of Fina, she will show how a young woman confronts the pressure of being the nation’s ‘First Daughter’.

Joining Erich are Melissa Ricks, Ejay Falcon, Enchong Dee, Matt Evans and Ron Morales. The best soap opera stars will also appear in this much awaited television series: Rowell Santiago, Agot Isidro, Jodi Sta. Maria, Nonie Buencamino, Mylene Dizon and Leo Martinez.

The story of “Tanging Yaman” begins with an incident that changes the life and fortune of two families. One family prospers while the other suffers. Fina, with her sister Marina (Jodi Sta. Maria), grows up in poverty whereas Isabel (Melissa Ricks) is raised as the First Daughter of the country. As the truth unfolds, Fina (Erich) assumes the responsibilities and privileges of being the daughter of the president.

Things won’t be easy for Fina. As she unites with her biological parents, she has to deal with Isabel who envies her.

Under the direction of Lino Cayetano and Manny Palo, every scene is set to move hearts and minds. “Tanging Yaman” starts on primetime this January on TFC.
