It’s an unusual love-team that will be featured in ABS-CBN’s newest primetime offering “Lorenzo’s Time,” which starts airing tomorrow, July 2. This first of its kind Primetime Bida drama series is topbilled by child wonder Zaijan Jaranilla and seasoned actress and TV host Carmina Villaroel.
The story is very interesting and the unique storyline excited us.
The press release goes: “‘Lorenzo’s Time’ is a touching journey of a young boy named Lorenzo (Enzo) who was diagnosed with progeria, an extremely rare genetic condition wherein symptoms resembling aspects of aging are manifested at an early age. In order to preserve his young body, he was subjected to cryonics until his parents find a cure for it.”
After 30 years, Enzo will wake up to face the world with missed precious moments of his life – including his family and the only girl he loves (with Carmina Villaroel playing the grown-up girl).
What also makes the teleserye exciting is its formidable cast. In addition to Zaijan and Carmina, “Lorenzo’s Time” also features Ms. Gina Pareño (as Enzo’s yaya Bel), Joel Torre (as Badong, private investigator), Alfred Vargas (Enzo’s childhood friend Carlo who’s now a doctor), James Blanco, Rommel Blanco, and Ms. Amy Austria-Ventura (as Mildred, Enzo’s aunt who wants the family company to herself).
“Lorenzo’s Time” is directed by Jerome Chavez Pobocan and Tors Mariscal Sanchez.
