Before Dingdong Dantes' 'Alyas Robin Hood' Ends This Month, He Has A New Docu-Drama Show About Real Crimes, 'Case Solved', Starting On February 18

DINGDONG DANTES’ hit action-drama on GMA Telebabad, “Alyas Robin Hood”, is on its last three weeks. But even before that ends, he’s already starting a new show, “Case Solved”, that starts airing on February 18 right after “Eat Bulaga” on Saturday afternoons.

“The two shows will overlap but after ‘Alyas Robin Hood’ ends, mas maluwag na ang schedule ko,” he says. “Which is good dahil my wife naman (Marian Rivera), will start taping for her new soap, so ako naman ang maiiwan sa bahay to take care of our baby daughter Zia.”

What’s the challenge of hosting a show like “Case Solved” for him? “I’ve done hosting before, in ‘Starstruck’, but never like this kasi seryoso ito. I’m really excited as the cases we’ll feature are based on real life stories that have already been resolved by the Supreme Court, handled by the NBI, PNP, Interpol, the Department of Justice and Bureau of Corrections. It explains how crimes are solved, so very educational and informative as it will also enlighten viewers on how to prevent and avoid crimes, predicting it before it happens.”

Each docu-drama, with Nini Matilac as program manager and Ramon Bravante as executive producer, will feature actual interviews with the victims, their families, the law enforcers who got involved in the crime and even show re-enactments of what really happened.

“The first case we’ll show is the Vallejo case where the only child of a couple was raped and killed. This is a landmark case as it’s the first case allowed by the courts where the DNA evidence is
accepted to convict a criminal. We’ll show the origins of the case and how it was resolved. It will also tell you kung kanino ka puedeng lumapit in your quest for justice. In the end, nanaig ang hustisya and, hopefully, it will help revive the trust of the public in our justice system. Kung yung character kong si Pepe, tumutulong para makamit ng mga naaapi ang katarungan in ‘Alyas Robin Hood’, dito naman sa ‘Case Solved’, we will help people be empowered sa totoong buhay kasi we’ll also feature stories like networking scams and how people can avoid this.”
