Be Careful With My Heart is a 2012 Philippine daytime television drama which premiered on ABS-CBN on July 9, 2012 airing before It's Showtime. It is also broadcast worldwide on The Filipino Channel. It is topbilled by Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap. It is one of the most successful teleserye of ABS-CBN.[1][2][3]

It is the first television drama in the Philippines made by ABS-CBN to be filmed in high definition.[4][5]

Synopsis[edit]

A simple pathetic, Maya dela Rosa (Jodi Sta. Maria), her older sister, Cristina Rose, and Cristina's son are introduced as tour guides in their hometown of San Nicolas, with their mother runs a souvenir shop. Money is often less than the living expenses and household repairs. Cristina Rose hopes to work at sea, while Maya dreams of becoming a flight stewardess. One rainy night, after an attempt to fix the roof, Cristina breaks her leg and is thus unable to complete her schooling to become a seafarer. With a large medical bill, Maya deems it necessary to work overseas for two years to help her family. Upon arrival in Manila, Maya discovers that the woman who had offered work overseas had swindled her. Maya is stuck in Manila with no money or place to go. Relentless, Maya allows no one to stop her, not even the handsome, wealthy widower Richard Lim (Richard Yap), who reminds her of her shortcomings.

Ironically, Richard is her last hope because of his influence in the airline industry. He offers Maya to become his youngest daughter's (who has selective mutism) temporary nanny in exchange for his help. Maya agrees to become a maid and nanny in his household. Upon entering the Lim home, she finds herself involved in the private lives of Richard and his three problematic children: Luke (Jerome Ponce), Nikki (Janella Salvador) and Abby (Mutya Orquia).

Maya realizes that since Richard's wife died, the family's joy died with her; hence their problems. Maya is tasked to bridge Richard to his children and eventually she succeeds in rebuilding the family. However, in repairing their broken hearts, Maya encounters bigger challenges that test her determination and, more importantly, her heart. While fulfilling her obligation, she falls in love with the Lim children and, admittedly, with Richard.

Production and development[edit]

After ABS-CBN launched the exclusive behind-the-scenes channels for Walang Hanggan and Princess and I, Be Careful With My Heart also aired its exclusive interviews of the cast and crew in the network's website.

Due to public demand, ABS-CBN announced that starting September 15, 2012, an additional time slot of episode reruns will air every Saturday at 10:30 a.m. (PST) called, Be Careful With My Heart: Sabado Rewind. However, after its first run, the network decided to air it at 10:00 a.m. instead. Sabado Rewind was discontinued on November 16, 2013 to give way for the free TV telecast of the NBA games. The final encore episode shows Sir Chief's proposal to Maya.

Reception[edit]

Ratings[edit]

The drama's pilot episode garnered a 15.2 household rating (total Philippines = urban and rural households), considerably high for a morning drama, and dominated its competitor, GMA7's Chef Boy Logro: Kusina Master which got 8.8% according to data released by Kantar Media.[8] Be Careful with My Heart (11:15 am Philippine time, under the ABS-CBN PrimeTanghali block, now currently 11:45 timeslot due to newly added shows) premiered strongly on July 9, 2012 on the pre-noontime block. Since then, Be Careful With My Heart's ratings proved that it is the #1 daytime show on Philippine TV, according to Kantar Media/TNS Total Philippines (Urban+Rural households) ratings.[9]

Film[edit]

On June 18, 2013, Metropolitan Manila Development Authority (MMDA) announced the 8 entries competing for the 2013 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF), which includes the Be Careful With My Heart movie. Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap will reprise their roles for the movie, which will premiere on December 25, 2013. The film is said to be the continuation of where the chapter of the series will end shortly before MMFF, by early December 2013.[10][11][12] In several recent interviews and appearances, Yap and Sta. Maria also mentioned that the only time their show will not air on television is during the time that the MMFF movie is being shown in cinemas. The show would however be back on air after the movie to continue the story.[13]

On September 12, 2013, the Be Careful With My Heart movie entry was pulled out from the Metro Manila Film Festival due to schedule conflicts of Yap and Sta. Maria.[14] The head of the MMFF wrote a letter to the producer of the show to bring back the movie and even gave them an extension for the submission of the film.[15] But the production team declines and instead continued the series.
