ABS-CBN acquires rights to FPJ film library
ABS-CBN recently acquired the rights to the late Fernando Poe Jr.’s exclusive movie library—a collection of classic movie titles that the actor had starred in, written, directed and produced.
“ABS-CBN is honored to have been entrusted with his body of works that represent FPJ and what he believed in,” ABS-CBN president and CEO Charo Santos-Concio said.
Susan Roces said her family and FPJ Productions believed that only ABS-CBN could thoroughly showcase all of FPJ’s masterpieces as its reach was unmatched.
Some of the FPJ blockbuster films include “Ang Panday,” “Totoy Bato,” “Kahit Konting Pagtingin,” “Iyo ang Tondo, Akin ang Cavite,” “Agila,” “Batang Quiapo,” at “Isang Bala Ka Lang.”
Also known as the King of Philippine Movies or Da King, FPJ was posthumously declared a National Artist of the Philippines in 2006.
Watch for FPJ movies soon on ABS-CBN, Studio 23, Cinema One, Jeepney TV and TFC.
