Emotional, relatable, heartbreaking, and true-to-life.
In Misis Piggy, director Carlo Enciso Catu gives us a family drama inspired by a true story.
The story follows Marivic (Sylvia Sanchez). She’s a single mother to Lani (Ria Atayde), Steffi (Iana Bernardez), and Jeffrey (Elijah Canlas). Problems arise when Marivic’s ex-husband comes back to the Philippines.
Direk Carlo revealed during the Misis Piggy mediacon that he based the story on his own life. He crafted it as an ode to all mothers doing their best for their families.
This series will make you cry. It’ll also leave you with a strong desire to hug your mothers, thanks to lines that hit home and superb acting. But there’s more to it than drama. You can also expect hints of romance (even some BL) and slice-of-life moments.
Misis Piggy premiered on Sunday, April 24. It has since captivated viewers thanks to the performances of its all-star cast.
The mother-daughter struggle is as real as it can get on this show. Sylvia Sanchez and her daughter Ria Atayde seriously got into their characters. They breathed new life into the trope of the eldest working daughter and scarred mother. So get your hearts and tissue boxes ready as you can now stream Misis Piggy on iWantTFC.
