Broken Vow is a Filipino drama series[1] created and written by Dode Cruz, under the direction of Gil Tejada, Jr. and produced by GMA Network. The series starred Bianca King, Luis Alandy, Gabby Eigenmann and Rochelle Pangilinan as the four lead characters. It premiered February 6, 2012 replacing Kung Aagawin Mo Ang Langit in GMA Afternoon Prime block and February 8, 2012 worldwide via GMA Pinoy TV.[2][3]

This series follows the story of Melissa (King), Felix (Alandy), Roberto (Eigenmann) and Rebecca (Pangilinan), the four protagonists whose lives and loves entangled by deception, obsession, broken love and broken promises.

Originally slated to air for just one season (13 weeks), the series awarded several extensions (6 weeks extensions) after it scores massive success in television ratings, both in Urban Luzon, Mega Manila and National Urban Philippines, outshining its competition in the afternoon slot.[4]

The series is set to conclude on June 15, 2012 and to be replaced by Faithfully. It ran for 19 weeks with 93 episodes.[5]


Melissa Santiago (played by Bianca King) is a beautiful and street-smart woman who becomes the apple of the eye of Roberto Sebastian (played by Gabby Eigenmann), a rich councilor who falls madly in love with the unpretentious barrio lass. Despite the extreme difference in their lifestyles, the two manage to keep their relationship strong and even plan to get married. But the couple's fairytale romance is suddenly jeopardized when Melissa encounters a horrifying experience. One night, on her way home from work, a group of men, abducts her. Held hostage at an unknown place, Melissa is drugged and raped. Worse, she did not recognize the identity of her rapist. The news has spread in their town and it dragged Roberto's family into an unpleasant scandal. In spite of the big controversy on his fiancé, Roberto stands by Melissa and vows to marry her. But on the day before their wedding, Melissa discovers she is pregnant. Devastated upon learning the truth, Roberto changes his mind and dumps Melissa on the day of their wedding.

With her perfect world turned into a nightmare, Melissa tried to jump off a bridge and end her life, only to be rescued by Felix Rastro (played by Luis Alandy). Regardless of her apprehension towards his kindness and concern, Felix is bent on winning her trust. Soon, Melissa falls for Felix, who loved her and her daughter Eva. Complications arise when Roberto re-enters the picture and asking for a second chance.
