Chito S. Roño to make TV directing comeback with Darna series


Highly-acclaimed box office director Chito S. Roño will be making his television comeback with the much-awaited television adaptation of Darna: The TV Series.  

Chito will be officially taking helm of one of ABS-CBN’s biggest projects of 2022 in early November.  

The man behind hit Kapamilya series Imortal, Lastikman and Spirits is expected to take today’s audiences to the edge of their seats with his expertise in visual effects production and masterful storytelling for the comics superheroine created by Mars Ravelo.  

Chito, who made his last TV show Maria Mercedes back in 2013 is also known as the “Master of Scare” in the big screen. He had previously directed hit horror films Feng Shui and The Ghost Bride.  

Recently, he was at the helm of the family drama Signal Rock, the Philippine’s entry to the Best Foreign Language Film category at the 91st Academy Awards.  

The upcoming Darna series is top-billed by Kapamilya actress Jane de Leon, who is in deep preparation to bring back the iconic Pinoy comics superheroine who embodies Filipino values and uses her superpowers for the common good.
