Mga Basang Sisiw sa GMA Afternoon Prime

Inspired by the 1981 blockbuster film Mga Basang Sisiw, GMA reinterprets the well-loved Agustin dela Cruz film.

Mga Basang Sisiw is topbilled by Lani Mercado, Raymond Bagatsing, Gardo Versoza, Caridad Sanchez, Maricris Garcia with Mike Tan; featuring the network's discoveries Renz Valerio, Bianca Umali, Kimberly Faye, Hershey Garcia, Miko Zarsadias, and Maxene Magalona in her first kontrabida role.

In the series, Froilan Sebastian's (Raymond Bagatsing) family can be described as picture perfect. However, his wife Olivia's (Lani Mercado) distant relative Vicky (Maxene Magalona) plotted to destroy their marriage by making it seem like Froilan has an affair with her. Because of this, Olivia together with their five kids - Justin (Renz), Faye (Bianca), Shine (Kimberly), Cha (Hershey) and Mickey (Miko) - decided to leave her husband. Froilan's family end up in a plane crash; only the five kids survived and they couldn't find Olivia's body.

"Ako si Vicky, sa Mga Basang Sisiw, and this is my first time to play a kontrabida role, pero kailangan nilang abangan kasi hindi lang siya basta-bastang kontrabida," Maxene explains.

The self-confessed fan of anything feminine and classic is also glad to be part of such an exciting and unpredictable series. According to Maxene, "Maraming twists and turns na mangyayari sa show na ito kasi it's not your usual show na may kontrabida, may bida, tapos mananalo 'yung bida. It's an ensemble cast and lahat ng characters sa show na 'to, importante."

Getting to work with newbies and veteran actors in the same series is something that Maxene looks forward to.

Under the helm of director Ricky Davao, Mga Basang Sisiw inspires viewers with the truth that no matter how bad life seems, someone always shares and understands one’s confinement in such a desperate state.
