Is the ‘First Yaya’ series of Marian Rivera and Gabby Concepcion an imitation of Maya-Ser Chief story?
How true is it that the new series of Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera and prominent actor Gabby Concepcion titled ‘First Yaya’ is an imitation of the Maya-Ser Chief story of ABS-CBN?
Maya and Ser Chief, played by Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap, respectively, gained popularity through the defunct Kapamilya series Please Be Careful With My Heart. In the said series, Jodi’s character played the yaya or nanny of the children of Richard’s character.
Just recently, GMA announced that Marian’s comeback project after taking a break for her pregnancy and giving birth is the series with Gabby. According to the article by columnist Ronnie Carrasco III in Bandera, the title is already a giveaway of what could be expected.
He said that most probably, the story is near enough to the story of the classic movie, the Sound of Music. Since the title of the new series of Marian has the word “yaya”, that means there is a kid or kids involved in the storyline. Most probably, she will be the nanny of the children of Gabb’s character.
According to Carrasco, in the Philippines, this kind of storyline is quite the same as what was shown un the defunct TV series of Jodi and Richard. Though this is quite impossible to happen in real life, the viewers loved the plot as it sounded like a Cinderella story.
For the entertainment columnist, it is now on the matter of how GMA will divert the predictable into surprising elements through the scenes. “But if only for GMA to get its major female star to work para deserving naman ito of its network title, aba, dapat lang naman. After all, she has had a long breaktime as Sleeping Beauty’s slumber,” Carrasco said about Marian Rivera’s new series.
