The Philippine entertainment industry has seen countless TV shows and movies that became unexpectedly good and successful. The entertainment industry is also not new to TV shows and movies that were based or inspired by books.
Books that are turned into TV shows and movies always have mixed reviews from fans of the books because most of them say that the TV or movie adaptation does not usually give justice to what the book has.
Fans of the book can have different comments about the actors and actresses who play their favorite characters, the setting of the show or movie, the scenes that are included and those that are not included, and even the small details that the book has that the TV show or movie has or does not have.
Having a TV or movie adaptation of a boom can be very hard, but some producers still push through with their projects.

After Araw Gabi, another Precious Hearts story was premiered, Los Bastardos.
Los Bastardos is about the five sons of Don Roman Cardinal, a rich haciendero who decided to start a family with his wife, but because of an unexpected happening, his wife was gone too soon and he was left with a son that was also taken away from him.
Don Roman then loved another four women where he also had four more sons.

These relationships all gave Don Roman a son, making him a father of five sons who have different mothers.
