GMA’s drama anthology I Can See You, which showcases some of the biggest stars in the Kapuso Network, premieres on Netflix Philippines beginning Monday, Feb. 15.
The groundbreaking program, which aired on GMA-7 in September last year, further solidifies GMA Network’s mission of being a catalyst in creating world-class programs and reinforcing its online presence as it joins the Network’s internationally-acclaimed primetime series ‘Descendants of the Sun Philippines’ on the popular video streaming platform.
I Can See You, which features four mini-series produced by four different teams, uses a common visual storytelling device - the use of a camera as a witness to the tales of love and mystery from everyday people; hence the title – I Can See You.
Kick-starting the drama anthology on Feb. 15 is “Love On The Balcony” top-billed by Alden Richards, Pancho Magno, and Jasmine Curtis-Smith.
“Love On The Balcony,” which is directed by LA Madridejos, tells the timely story of a wedding videographer, Gio (Alden), who crosses paths with a frontline nurse, Lea (Jasmine). Uninspired and creatively drained, Gio is encouraged by his business partner and friend Val (Pancho) to search for a potential fling during quarantine. After their unfortunate encounter, romance eventually blossoms between Gio and Lea amidst the pandemic.
Completing the cast are Denise Barbacena and Shyr Valdez.
Topbilled by Andrea Torres, Yasmien Kurdi, Benjamin Alves, and Paolo Contis, “The Promise” gives viewers more reasons to believe in the power of love this March 1. The story begins with a wealthy widower named Frank (Paolo) who loses his passion for life and becomes a recluse after losing his wife Clarisse (Yasmien) from an accident. When Jude (Benjamin), his cousin and right-hand man in the company, visits him in the lake house where he stays at, Frank takes an interest in the latter’s girlfriend Ivy (Andrea), an aspiring artist who is willing to do anything to take her family out of poverty.
Also playing an exciting role in this series is Maey Bautista. The Promise is directed by Zig Dulay.
