GMA Network’s Kapuso Primetime King Dingdong Dantes is making his highly-anticipated comeback to the small screen in the upcoming series, “Royal Blood.” From the creator of Widows’ Web, Ken de Leon and RJ Nuevas, the series is a murder mystery drama that promises to keep viewers at the edge of their seats night after night. “Royal Blood” follows the story of Napoy (Dantes), a loving single father who struggles to provide for his daughter’s needs by working as a motorcycle rider. He is also the bastard son of a business tycoon. Despite facing financial problems, Napoy is able to provide for his child with the help of friends and neighbors. However, chaos begins when his estranged father suddenly appears and wants to make amends with him. As Napoy steps into the family of his wealthy father, he gets to know his half-siblings and discovers that being rich does not guarantee a perfect and happy life. Soon enough, things become more complicated when their father is murdered, and Napoy becomes the primary suspect. Completing a star-studded cast for Royal Blood are Megan Young, Dion Ignacio, Mikael Daez, Lianne Valentin and Rhian Ramos. Miss Universe Philippines 2020 Rabiya Mateo is also part of the supporting cast in an introductory role, joining Benjie Paras, Arthur Solinap and veteran actor Tirso Cruz 3rd in a special role as Napoy’s father. Directed by the prolific Dominic Zapata, GMA Network will announce Royal Blood’s premiere date very soon.
