It premiered on September 19, 2016 on GMA Telebabad primetime block replacing the Korean drama Descendants of the Sun and also aired worldwide on GMA Pinoy TV.
According to its producers the series was inspired by the English folklore, Robin Hood.
After being estranged from his family for some years, Pepe De Jesus returns home to make ammends with his parents, Jose De Jesus and Judy De Jesus. Pepe grew up someone who tends to start fights much to the dismay of his father who hates conflicts. He revealed to his family that he has changed his ways and is becoming a lawyer soon and was welcomed by his family including his father who was initially unhappy of his return. Pepe also gets to know a girl named Sarri Acosta.
All seems well for the De Jesus family until Pepe found his father dead apparently murdered by his own arrow which Pepe owned sinced he was a teenager. He seeks who was behind for the murder but he was blamed for the death of his own father and was convicted of a crime he didn't commit. While in transit to his prison, the vehicle carying Pepe was bombed and Pepe along with the vehicle fell from a bridge. He was later found by Venus, who taught him martial arts.
Everyone thought that Pepe is dead. Armed with a bow and arrow made by his best friend, Jekjek, Pepe takes advantage of the situation to find who really was behind the murder of his father under a secret identity. He will also have the opportunity to thwart the illegal operations of those he suspects to be behind his father's murders and the money earned from these illegal operations are redistributed to the people in need which caused him to be known as "Alyas Robin Hood", an alter ego he adopts while he clears his own name.
