Youth-oriented anthology series Sparkle U gives viewers a feel-good and heartwarming afternoon every weekend.
Sparkle U features the good times and the struggles that Filipino youth are facing today in their teenage lives.
The show’s first installment entitled “#LikeforLike” will soon be headlined by some of Sparkle GMA Artist Center’s most promising stars Shayne Sava and Abdul Raman, together with Zephanie, Michael Sager, Roxie Smith, Anjay Anson, Lauren King, Vanessa Peña, and Princess Aliyah.
“#LikeforLike” follows the story of a 17-year-old wallflower, Bekang (Shayne), and three other mediocre teens, Sue (Zephanie), Marco (aMichael), and Wado (Anjay). From being nobodies, they will suddenly become famous after rescuing the campus queen bee, Yazzi (Roxie) from a fire incident.
As their high school lives begin to change, the four teenagers must deal and adjust to their new status. They will be forced to act according to society’s expectations, especially now that they gained attention from more popular students and the anonymous Jen Z, a vlogger who reveals secrets and controversies inside the university.
Will Jen Z make or break the relationships these teenagers have with their friends, families, and even with themselves? Will their sudden fame be something good for them or will it only harm their young minds?
