GMA Network and ABS-CBN Corporation have signed a partnership for the co-production of the romantic drama series Unbreak My Heart.

The series will be filmed in Switzerland and will air on GMA this year and stream in 15 territories outside of the Philippines on Viu.

The cast includes Joshua Garcia, Gabbi Garcia, Richard Yap, and Jodi Sta. Maria, along with Maey Bautista, Will Ashley, Bianca de Vera, Nikki Valdez, Eula Valdes and Laurice Guillen. It is directed by Emmanuel Q. Palo and Dolly Dulu.

GMA’s senior VP of programming, talent management for worldwide, and support groups, Annette Gozon-Valdes, said, “It’s a first for Philippine TV, and I’m sure it’s the audience that will be the winners in this collaboration. We’re very excited to be working with ABS-CBN on TV for the first time.”

ABS-CBN’s COO of broadcast, Cory Vidanes, added, “This is a milestone in the industry. We’re thankful for this opportunity, and we’re very happy to work with GMA to serve our audiences. We unite as one team. We never imagined that this was going to happen.”

Viu’s content partnerships head, Garlic Garcia, said, “Today, we are able to proudly showcase that on our platform with premium Filipino content not just for Filipino audiences but also for global audiences to appreciate and enjoy. This is with a vision of bringing the best of the Filipino talent on-cam and off-cam to the world.”

Sta. Maria said, “This collaboration will really bring in opportunities not only to the networks but for the people working in the network, for the people in the industry.”

Yap added, “I’m really proud, honored and excited to be part of this show which is history in the making since this is the first time that two network giants will be working with each other. Of course, I’m also excited to be working with Jodi again and all the other people in the cast.”

“I’m really honored to be part of this project. I can’t wait to give life to my character,” said Joshua Garcia.

Gabbi Garcia said, “It’s my first time doing this kind of role. You’ll see in this series the type of growth and depth my character exhibits.”
