ABS-CBN earlier this month announced going into an agreement with BBC Studios that allows the former to remake the BAFTA award-winning psychological drama.
“Doctor Foster” follows the story of “a trusted doctor whose life implodes when she suspects her husband of having an affair,” ABS-CBN said in a release.
Showrunners have yet to announce the official casting for the said show, although fans have also previously called for Judy Ann Santos to play Dr. Gemma Foster. Their clamor for Santos to be cast immediately went viral on Twitter after announcement of the adaptation was made.
The Philippine adaptation is set to go into production later this year and will be executive produced by Dyogi, ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo Katigak, ABS-CBN COO of broadcast Cory Vidanes and ABS-CBN Dreamscape Entertainment head Deo Endrinal. JB
