GMA Network’s family drama series Legal Wives is now streaming on Netflix.
It stars Dennis Trillo as Ismael Makadatu, an honorable man from a well-off Mranaw family who marries three women out of obligation, dedication and compassion.
Alice Dixson is Amirah Alonte, pious daughter of a sultan and Ismael’s first wife; Andrea Torres is Diane San Luis, Ismael’s second wife, a modern Catholic woman who goes to great lengths to fight for herself and Ismael’s love; and Bianca Umali is Farrah Valeandong, Ismael’s third wife whose family reputation he wants to redeem.
All scenes, creative processes and executions for the series are with the guidance of Muslim consultants Sohaimen Agal, Imam Mohammad Miphantao, Imam Abu amen Abdullah and Ustadh Alinor Pansar; Islamic script editor Salem Guimba; and costume and Muslim language consultant Princess Nurfathma Egypa Balindong.
The series, which premiered in July 2021, is the seventh GMA content that Netflix has acquired, following Descendants of the Sun, I Can See You, Love of my Life, Owe My Love, Heartful Café and Family History.
