ATF Spotlight: GMA Worldwide


SINGAPORE: The topic of Alzheimer’s disease is addressed within the story of Someone to Watch Over Me, one of GMA Worldwide’s ATF highlights.

Manuel Paolo J. Laurena, the company’s senior sales manager, calls the drama “a compelling story about how love is tested in the face of adversity.” Also on offer is Oh My Mama, about a teen searching for her real father. “This is an eye-opening drama for all ages that shows that even in the absence of a good role model, a young girl or boy can overcome adversity,” says Laurena. There is also Love and Defiance, focused on the struggles of marriage and early parenthood.

“We want clients to know that GMA innovates and keeps up with the demands of its viewers both in the local and international markets,” Laurena says. “GMA dramas are not only for entertainment—they also carry a great deal of socially relevant issues that reflect how the world is today.”

He adds: “We aim to be the number one choice for quality Filipino dramas worldwide.”
