MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It is being described as more entertaining, more explosive and more thrilling than the ‘Matobato’ series which made its debut on Senate TV last week.
‘Delilah,’ based on the true story of Philippine Senator Leila De Lima will premiere on Congressional TV next week.
While ‘Matobato’ tackled the issue of alleged extra-judicial killings under the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, ‘Delilah’ will focus on the alleged meaty and juicy role of De Lima in the proliferation of drugs not only inside the New Bilibid Prison but also throughout the country when she was Secretary of the Department of Justice under the Aquino administration.
Aside from De Lima, the cast of characters includes recording artist Herbert Colangco, convicted drug dealer who has produced hit music videos from inside his prison cell.
The Adobo Chronicles just learned that Colangco will sing the theme song of the news series — a rock version cover of “My, My, My Delilah.”
