It’s go signal for Angelica Panganiban’s first starring role in a tv series – the ABS-CBN remake of the telenovela “Rubi.”

After Maja Salvador, it’s now turn for Angelica Panganiban to star in a tv series of her own. ABS-CBN has just acquired the rights to remake the Mexican telenovela last month and contrary to rumors that Angelica’s first big role was shelved, they will now start the camera rolling for Rubi.

Angelica Panganiban will be paired with Diether Ocampo. Completing the main cast are Jake Cuenca and Shaina Magdayao who will play the role of “Maribel dela Fuente.”

The role of “Rubi” was first offered to Kristine Hermosa but the star of “Dahil May Isang Ikaw” declined.

Here’s the plot of Rubi:
Rubí is a beautiful, charismatic young woman from a working-class background. She is studying at a university because of her sister’s great efforts. Rubí is best friends with Maribel, a wealthy young woman with a small defect in her leg. Rubí eventually meets Maribel’s boyfriend Hector and his best friend Alejandro. A much darker truth lies inside of Rubí. She is driven by a dark ambition that will stop at nothing to get what she wants, and what she wants is to escape from poverty and be wealthy.
