As one of the two directors behind the top-rated primetime series The Broken Marriage Vow, Andoy Ranay said there were a lot of things to look forward to in the show even before they started their lock-in taping cycles in Baguio City last year. With the show being the Philippine adaptation of the hit 2015 British drama series Doctor Foster and 2020 South Korean blockbuster drama The World of the Married, direk Andoy said he was definitely excited to showcase local talent and storytelling in the ABS-CBN series.

“The most exciting part talaga ay yung pagkuwento mo bilang isang Pinoy fillmmaker. Dahil adaptation ito, ayaw mo siya gayahin. Ayaw mong gayahin yung mga versions na napanuod mo because hindi naman talaga puwedeng maging ganun eh. Kasi iba yung kultura nila, iba yung nuances nung mga artista.

“And also, the most exciting part really is this bunch of amazing, multi-talented actors na hindi na talaga kami nahirapan to direct them because they know to begin with kung ano yung mga characters nila, kung ano yung mga scenes na gagawin nila.

“Because we did this at the height of the pandemic and it was so difficult for us as filmmakers na i-workshop pa sila o sabihin pa sa kanila kung ano yung mga susunod na mga scenes to guide them. Sila na mismo meron silang mga ambag para mapaganda yung ginagawa naming project. Very collaborative,” he shared.

The The Broken Marriage Vow director also shared what he believes is the legacy that the show will leave with its viewers and the local entertainment industry after it airs its finale this week.

“I believe dun sa pagtaas ng standard natin and to compete globally as Filipino filmmakers. Sa akin mas yun eh. Kung dati ang inaabangan ng mga Pilipino ay yung sampalan, dito wala ka namang makikitang nagsampalan, nagsabunutan na confrontation. Wala namang mga ganun eh.

“But as a filmmaker o gumagawa ng mga teleserye, naiangat na natin at this point kung paano tayo nagkukuwento ng teleserye via a global brand that is Doctor Foster. So pagdating ngayon nakaka-stress din at nakaka-pressure din para sa susunod kasi kailangan mas maganda na dito or parang hindi na tayo puwede bumalik sa dati for us to compete globally and also to be recognized as well sa digital platform all over the world. Para hindi lang tayo sa buong Pilipinas lang, madami pa tayong audience na kailangan maabot. I guess yun yung pagtaas ng standard ng paggawa ng isang teleserye sa series natin,” he explained. 

The Broken Marriage Vow stars Jodi Sta. Maria, Zanjoe Marudo, Sue Ramirez, and Zaijian Jaranilla. Watch the finale week of The Broken Marriage Vow weeknights on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z, Jeepney TV, and TV5. The Broken Marriage Vow’s finale episode will be aired on June 24, Friday.
