GMA Network has yet again pursued creating a series with an unusual story. This time around, a series that revolves around Article 247 of the Revised Penal Code, stating that “any legally married person who having surprised his spouse in the act of committing sexual intercourse with another person, shall kill any of them or both of them in the act or immediately thereafter, or shall inflict upon them any serious physical injury, shall suffer the penalty of destierro (banishment).”
Afternoons fire up with new legal drama series ‘Artikulo 247,’ top-billed by Rhian Ramos, Benjamin Alves, Mark Herras, Mike Tan, and Kris Bernal. It showcases the emotional journey of a woman who bravely moves on from her past entanglement with her boss and his wife. But soon enough, her past slowly creeps in and catches up with her peaceful life.
During their virtual bloggers conference, the main cast of Artikulo 247 promised to bring excitement to Filipino viewers who want something different in their TV watching habit. Here are some snaps from the event:
