MANILA — ABS-CBN’s newest prime time drama series “Ang Probinsyano” gave its viewers a glimpse into the life of a young police officer.
In its premiere episode, the drama series showed how Ador (Coco Martin) surpassed the physical, mental, and emotional challenges at the Philippine National Police Academy (PNPA).
Graduating as the valedictorian of their batch, Ador showed excellence and commitment to his chosen profession. This includes fighting a criminal who attempted to bomb a train full of commuters and saving an old woman from a jeepney that was hanging from the edge of a cliff.
Ador risked his life and answered the call of duty.
Ador’s journey in world of the PNP has yet to start. Will he stay idealistic until the end or will he be influenced by corruption and greed?
“Ang Probinsyano” reveals the hidden culture inside the PNPA. It also shows the human tears and pain that cadets have to endure in their four years of stay in the academy.
People who watched the premiere episode shared their thoughts on the social media. The hashtag #AngProbinsyanoSimula dominated the top trends in the Philippines.
“Ang Probinsyano” is Coco Martin’s comeback in the primetime slot after “Ikaw Lamang.”
It airs on weeknights after “TV Patrol.”
