MIPCOM Spotlight: GMA Worldwide


CANNES: The universal subjects of love, family and intrigue are at the center of GMA Worldwide’s dramas Buena Familia, Beautiful Strangers and My Faithful Husband, which are all being presented as part of the company’s MIPCOM slate.

“Our dramas highlight compelling story lines, imaginative themes and feature our country’s most talented artists,” says Roxanne Barcelona, the VP of GMA Worldwide. “The three featured dramas embody these qualities. The stories revolve around common real-life conditions, from personal vendettas and acceptance (Beautiful Strangers) to family struggles and triumphs (Buena Familia) to infidelity, love and forgiveness (My Faithful Husband).” Barcelona says that she and the GMA Worldwide sales team are pursuing sales opportunities in territories that have not yet acquired Filipino programming.

“GMA’s titles appeal more and more to a wide variety of international broadcasters and viewers because of the growing exposure and appreciation of quality Filipino programming,” she adds.
