MANILA, Philippines—Media giant ABS-CBN Corp. is remaking psychological drama Doctor Foster for the Filipino audience after sealing an agreement with British content company BBC Studios.

ABS-CBN said in a statement the new television series will be created by ABS-CBN Entertainment and will go into production later this year.


“We are most grateful to BBC Studios for entrusting ABS-CBN Entertainment with the Philippine version of Doctor Foster,” ABS-CBN chief operating officer Cory Vidanes said in the statement released on Tuesday (April 13).

“It is a privilege for us to be able to produce this highly engaging and relatable story for the Filipino audience,” Vidanes added.


Doctor Foster is an award winning series “centred around a trusted doctor whose life implodes when she suspects her husband of having an affair.”

The project will be led by Vidanes, ABS-CBN president and CEO Carlo Katigak, ABS-CBN Entertainment production head Laurenti Dyogi and ABS-CBN Dreamscape Entertainment head Deo Endrinal.

Doctor Foster was also adapted in South Korea, France, Russia, Turkey and India. A second series has aired in France and is currently in production in India. In South Korea the format (known locally as The World of the Married) was the country’s highest-rated drama in cable TV history.
