Maria la del Barrio is a hit Mexican telenovela aired in the Philippine television during the 90s. The story revolves around Maria, a poor orphan who was working for a wealthy family. She falls in love with the one of the sons of the kind family but then finds out that he was cheating on her.

In the local adaptation of the telenovela, Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales were chosen to play the roles of Luis Fernando and Maria. Erich watched the teleserye when she was a kid so she's familiar with the story while Enchong doesn't have a clue about it. They're both excited and nervous about the viewer's expectations.

Maria la del Barrio will soon air on ABS-CBN.
