MIPCOM Spotlight: GMA Worldwide


Female lead characters overcome adversity despite the odds being stacked against them in GMA Worldwide’s Legally Blind and Until We Meet Again.

In Legally Blind, a visually impaired lawyer seeks justice against the man who raped her, while in Until We Meet Again, a feral child looks for her real family. “Both series showcase the Filipino values of courage, perseverance and love of family,” says Roxanne J. Barcelona, the VP of GMA Worldwide.

The slate also features the non-scripted format The Clash, “a unique take on a talent competition,” says Barcelona. “With little to no time to strategize, all the contestants can do is give their best performance every week.” She adds of her MIPCOM plans, “We would like to develop world-class content with our clients and forge mutually beneficial partnerships through co-pros and shared licensing rights.”

Barcelona says, “While GMA Worldwide continues to provide broadcasters and platforms with the best Filipino dramas for licensing, we will be actively promoting format rights for our scripted and non-scripted content.”
