The newest TV drama series of GMA-7's primetime, My Husband's Lover aired its premiere pilot episode on June 10, 2013. My Husbands Lover holds the story of gay relationship, hardships of a wife, lies, secrets and revelations.
My Husband's Lover changes the traditional face of Philippine TV drama by featuring a new kind of relationship. Instead of having the usual love triangle of two gentlemen fighting for a woman, this show will revolve around a beautiful woman and a man with a gentle heart both fighting for the love of just one man.
The catchy trailer of My Husband’s Lover has already caught the interest and attention of TV viewers. Aside from the heavy dramas which brought flood of tears from the lead characters, the story tackles homosexual relationship and attractions, the lost, almost forgotten, and returning love of two gay men, and the struggles of a wife who has no idea that she has married a homosexual.
My Husband’s Lover stars the lovely actress Carla Abellana, award-winning actor Dennis Trillo and introduces the new Kapuso actor and ex-Pinoy Big Brother housemate, Tom Rodriguez. Carla Abellana will be playing the role of Lally, wife of homosexual Eric portrayed by Tom Rodriguez who has a secret relationship to the openly gay Eric played Dennis Trillo.
Through its promotions, My Husband’s Lover promises to define the true meaning of love. This yields to curiosity of the viewers about how the story will conclude. Who will the gay husband choose in the end, his wife or his gay lover? Shall he follow the dictate of his heart or just track the norms of society?
Conservatives might find the content sensitive that it can influence, liberate or pollute the minds of Filipino society but MTRCB has approved its airing with a rating of Strict Parental Guidance (SPG).
My Husband's Lover is a great attempt of GMA-7 for changing the game of primetime dramas and delimiting the kinds of stories aired in local television. If the story of My Husband’s Lover runs well in the upcoming episodes, the established curiosity and interest of viewers will be maintained and the show will surely rate well.
