MIPCOM Spotlight: GMA Worldwide


A mother and daughter are at odds because they both love the same man in Broken Hearts from GMA Worldwide.

The romantic comedy series Happy Together, meanwhile, follows a bubbly young woman’s quest for self-discovery. The superhero series Heart of Courage is about an ordinary mortal who inherits the hammer of Thor. Roxanne J. Barcelona, the company’s VP, explains that the series is inspired by the Norse myth.

Barcelona adds, “We are strengthening relationships with our Asian neighbors such as Myanmar and Vietnam, as well as Thailand and Malaysia, through co-productions and possibly more format deals. At the same time, we’d like to help African broadcasters in providing content for their channels and platforms and enter more European and Latin American countries through partner distributors.”

She says, “These shows are performing well locally, both in ratings and viewership, as well as engagement in social media.”
