Do you ever get the sense that you are being watched? Or that you are not alone?

If you have ever felt like being spied upon whether by someone or something, more often than not, your instincts are correct. Researchers believe that humans are sensitive to gaze as it signals intimacy as well as danger; two of the things we need to pay attention to for our own well-being.

Beginning September 28, GMA Network raises the bar with an exceptional and one-of-a-kind program featuring the biggest and brightest Kapuso stars in the drama anthology ‘I Can See You’ on the Telebabad block.   




This unique drama anthology which highlights four mini-series – Love On The Balcony, High Rise Lovers, The Promise, and Truly. Madly. Deadly. – dwells on its common visual storytelling mnemonic device which is the use of a camera as a witness to the tales of love and mystery from everyday people; hence the title – I Can See You.

The ground-breaking program gifts viewers with compelling, contemporary, and unique stories produced by four different teams in a remarkable four-week viewing experience.

In observance of anti-COVID-19 protocols alongside the Network’s precautionary measures, the cast and crew of the show underwent RT-PCR tests, lock-in tapings and strictly practiced government-mandated safety and health protocols on the set.

Watch a teaser video of the show below:


Kick-starting the drama anthology is “Love On The Balcony” top-billed by Asia's Multimedia Star Alden Richards, Kapuso hunk Pancho Magno, and Kapuso leading Lady Jasmine Curtis-Smith. It tells the timely story of a wedding videographer, Gio (Alden), who crosses paths with a frontline nurse, Lea (Jasmine). Uninspired and creatively drained, Gio is encouraged by his business partner and friend Val (Pancho) to search for a potential fling during quarantine. After their unfortunate encounter, romance eventually blossoms between Gio and Lea amidst the pandemic. Is this the beginning of a beautiful chapter in their love story or is it just destiny’s way of putting people in our lives for a purpose?

Completing the cast are Denise Barbacena and Shyr Valdez. Love On The Balcony is directed by LA Madridejos which airs beginning September 28.

Heating up primetime TV viewing on October 5 is the second installment of the series “High Rise Lovers” which stars Kapuso Premier Drama Actress Lovi Poe, actress-beauty queen Winwyn Marquez and multitalented Kapuso actor Tom Rodriguez. It follows the story of married couple Samantha (Lovi) and Luis (Tom) whose relationship dwindles as their opposing goals in life get the best of them. After moving into a new condominium unit, Samantha continues to strive for a big promotion at work while Luis, an unemployed contractor, is forced to accept a renovation job for another occupant – the mysterious and sultry Ysabel (Winwyn). Will Luis yield to the temptation of a new lover who comforts his bruised ego or will Samantha realize that her marriage is still worth saving?

Also starring in the episode are Teresa Loyzaga and Kenneth “Tetay” Ocampo. High Rise Lovers is under the helm of Monti Parungao.

Bannered by talented Kapuso stars Andrea Torres, Yasmien Kurdi, Benjamin Alves and Paolo Contis, “The Promise” gives viewers more reasons to believe in the power of love this October 12. The story begins with a rich widowed man named Frank (Paolo) who loses his passion for life and became a recluse after losing his wife Clarisse (Yasmien) from an accident. When Jude (Benjamin), his cousin and right-hand man in the company, visits him in the lake house where he stays at, Frank takes an interest in the latter’s girlfriend Ivy (Andrea), an aspiring artist who is willing to do anything to take her family out of poverty.

Also playing an exciting role in this series is Maey Bautista. The Promise is directed by Zig Dulay.

Finally, set to bring mystery and romance is the last installment “Truly. Madly. Deadly.” headlined by Kapuso Drama King Dennis Trillo, versatile Kapuso actress Rhian Ramos, and Ultimate Star Jennylyn Mercado premiering on October 19. Coleen (Jennylyn) is a professional woman who, after being ridiculed online for a scandal with a married man, moves out of the city and works in a remote resort where she meets the mysterious resident IT guy named Drew (Dennis). Life seems to be going well for the recovering Coleen until her best friend turned enemy Abby (Rhian) shows up and her past begins to haunt her once again.

Joining the talented cast of this episode is Jhoana Marie Tan and with the special participation of Ruby Rodriguez. Truly. Madly. Deadly is directed by Jorron Lee Monroy.

Don’t miss out on GMA Network’s newest and much-awaited offering this year ‘I Can See You’ beginning September 28, right after Encantadia, on the Telebabad block. 09/30/2020 (TV Series Craze)

The "Queen of GMA's Teleserye Theme Songs" and the Kapuso Siren Ms. Maricris Garcia-Cruz is celebrating her birthday. And aside from that, the singer-actress is soon to be a mother!

In line with the success in her personal life and her career amidst of this pandemic, GMA Artist Center (GMAAC) a virtual or online blogcon for Maricris!

Maricris who is also a product of the GMA singing-reality show "Pinoy Pop Superstar" is now very popular after singing most of the Kapuso teleseryes. But prior to that, Maricris together with her friends Aicelle Santos and Jonalyn Viray /Jonah are members of the GMA girl group La Diva.


 

Maricris who is now happily married for three years is also expecting a baby. During our blogcon, we talked about her preparation being soon to be a mom. She also told us the challenges they faced during the pandemic and the things that kept her busy during the lockdown. 

Well without further ado, here is my live video coverage during our virtual blogcon with Maricris Garcia. Let's all watch this:

 


Meanwhile,  I had my solo interview with Maricris. During my turn, I asked her four sets of questions. The first one was about her career-life balance now that she is a wife and a soon to be mom. The second is all about her teleserye theme song which she love the most. We even discussed her title being the so-called GMA "Queen of Teleserye Theme Songs."

And lastly, Maricris revealed that the Kapuso versatile actor Dennis Trillo is her dream leading man once she decided to do her own TV series. Is Maricris love to do being a kontrabida or a bida for a change? How about the genre of her teleserye if ever?

Let's all watch my virtual interview with Maricris:

 


Aside from being a singer, Maricris already did many TV series on GMA-7. Her last teleserye with Kapuso was the afternoon hit drama "Asawa Ko Karibal Ko" starring Kris Bernal, Rayver Cruz, Jason Abalos, and Thea Tolentino. After this series, what's next for Maricris? Will she do another teleserye, launch a new single, or focus on her family with her first baby?

Once more, congratulations Maricris and happy birthday! 09/29/2020 (TV Series Craze)

Filipinos have such rich and colorful culture that is best experienced first-hand, but since this is not possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic, TFC in partnership with Cinemalaya Philippine Independent Film Festival and Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) brings them a glimpse of it through the films featured in the “Cinemalaya 2020.”

More than 80 films featured are now available to the viewers overseas via TFC Online, which Cinemalaya Competition and Monitoring Chairperson Jose Javier Reyes believes will appeal even to the second-generation Filipinos or those who were born and raised abroad.


“For the second generation, this is an insight into the Filipino culture, a culture which they miss. For the homesick, it gives you a glimpse of how it was back home and the way Filipinos are thinking,” Javier explained.

In this year’s Main Competition Short Films, bagging the most award is the film “Tokwifi” that took home the Best Film and NETPAC Jury Prize. It is a story about a 1950s mestiza star, trapped inside a television that fell from the sky – dreams up a romantic romp with a Bontok Igorot man who does not know how to kiss.

While Martika Ramirez Escobar won as Best Director for the film “Living Things,” which tells the story of Kints who wakes up and discovers that her decade-long lover Charles has turned into a cardboard standee of himself.

Winning the Best Screenplay is Hubert Tibi for the film “Pabasa Kan Pasyon,” set during the Lenten season, a Bicolano family uses their mother’s faith to make ends meet.

While the Audience Choice Award went to the film “Quing Lalam Ning Aldo” (Under the Sun) which is about a transgender Sampaguita farmer who decided to renovate their neglected kitchen as soon as she heard that her son is going home.

Also part of the Main Competition Short Films are “Ang Gasgas na Plaka ni Lolo Bert” (The Broken Vinyl Record) which is about a closeted gay man in his 60s who has been living with HIV for 10 years; “Excuse Me, Miss, Miss, Miss” which puts the spotlight on the plight of contractual workers in the Philippines; the horror film “Fatigued” where the character must wake up before the nightmare turns into reality; “Utwas” which features the life if Toto and how he discovers a lot of things about the ocean while learning to dive and fish; and “The Slums” which is a documentary on the life of a poor family as they try to cope with the loss of their TV.

Do not also miss the films under the Exhibition Indie-Nation shorts, Gawad Alternatibo Para sa Pelikula at Video, and Retrospective Full-Length films categories, plus the virtual events and classes of “Cinemalaya 2020.”

Two best friends who are victims of the same circumstance will become bitter rivals as they fight for what they believe they rightfully own in the upcoming ABS-CBN TV series “Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin,” which will be available outside the Philippines via TFC starting August 17.

The series features a grand ensemble of a cast led by Jodi Sta. Maria and Iza Calzado with Sam Milby and the Philippines’ Diamond Star Maricel Soriano. 


Get to know Marissa (Jodi) and Ellice (Iza), best friends who hail from different worlds: Ellice is from an influential family and lives a fancy life, while Marissa is a simple lass living with her mother Lucing (Maricel).

The two are inseparable until one night, a gruesome crime changes their destinies --- Ellice accidentally kills the son of a powerful politician who attempts to rape her, and Marissa takes the blame as Ellice’s father offered her money and a promise that she is not to spend a day in jail.

However, none of the promises is granted and Marissa is forced to suffer in jail for years. Not aware of her best friend’s agonizing fate, Ellice lives her life in the U.S. and meets Gabriel (Sam), the man she later marries.

As Ellice and Gabriel go back to the Philippines to start anew, she meets Marissa, but the best friend she used to know is long gone as Marissa vows to take everything Ellice has--money, possessions, and even her husband--and make her suffer just like how she did.

Where will Marissa’s grit for vengeance leads them to? How will Ellice fight for Gabriel if he falls for Marissa and her cunning plans?

"Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin" is under the direction of F.M. Reyes and Avel Sunpongco and is produced by JRB Creative Production.

Don’t miss “Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin,” as it starts airing on August 17 on TFC cable and satellite, and TFC Online and TFC IPTV.

Tanghalang Pilipino (TP) and the Cultural Center of the Philippines team up with ABS-CBN’s streaming app iWant in bringing six (6) previously-staged  TP productions online through ‘Pantawid ng Tanghalan’, a fund-raising activity that seeks to sustain the company’s commitment in bringing artistically-excellent and socially-relevant productions to the public. This activity comes from the heels of TP’s online initiative, ‘PansamanTANGHALAN’, which was launched last April.

“Tanghalang Pilipino’s commitment to constantly engage our audiences, especially now that we’re in the midst of the pandemic, gave birth to our ‘PansamanTanghalan”. However, we want to elevate the audience’s experience and thankfully, iWant has agreed to partner with us in making our shows more accessible to the public.” says TP Artistic Director Nanding Josef. “This partnership fortifies a strong future for the entire performing arts industry in the digital landscape. And we’re so glad that TP is at the forefront of that movement.”  


The six productions to be featured include the recently-staged ethno-epic musical, Lam-Ang; the steampunk musical Mabining Mandirigma; celebrated Filipino translation of Shakespeare classics Coriolano, Pangarap sa Isang Gabi ng Gitnang Tag-Araw , and Der Kaufmann;  and the hit children’s musical Sandosenang Sapatos.

Coming from a successful run last December 2019 and originally slated as TP’s 34th Season opening production, Lam-Ang, An Ethno-Epic Musical returns, albeit online, to tell the story of the oldest epic hero in Luzon. With book and lyrics by Eljay Castro Deldoc, music by Jen Darlene Torres, and directed by Marco Viaña and Fitz Edward Bitana, the musical stars JC Santos in the title role, together with Anna Luna, Tex Ordonez-De Leon, and some of the most promising young theater actors in the country today.

Mabining Mandirigma, a steampunk musical by Dr. Nicanor Tiongson and Joed Balsamo, and directed by CCP Vice President and Artistic Director Chris Millado, has already enjoyed four successful restaging, since it premiered in 2016. The musical chronicles the legal and diplomatic heroism of the sublime paralytic, Apolinario Mabini, played brilliantly by Ms. Monique Wilson. A winner of astounding twelve (12) Gawad Buhay! Awards, including Outstanding Musical, Mabining Mandirigma was hailed by inquirer.net as ‘One of the Best Filipino Musicals in recent years’. Snippets of the show are already available on the Tanghalang Pilipino Youtube channel.


A story about a legendary Roman soldier turned into a tyrannical leader, Coriolano effectively displays how personal and selfish ambition can lead to one’s ultimate downfall. Translated by Guelan Varela - Luarca and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Carlos Siguion-Reyna, the play stars Marco Viaña as Coriolano, together with Frances Makil-Ignacio and Sherry Lara alternating as his strong-willed mother, Volumnia. Coriolano had its premiere in January 2019 at the CCP Little Theater.

Also directed by Siguion-Reyna, Pangarap sa Isang Gabi ng Gitnang Tag-araw, National Artist for Literature and Theater Rolando Tinio’s translation of Shakespeare’s famous comedy ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, tells the story of multiple characters as they traverse a complicated web of romance, all set in a grandiose mystery of Athens. Pangarap also boasts of a powerhouse cast, which includes Audie Gemora, former TP Associate Artistic Director Liesl Batucan, Jackielou Blanco, Teroy Guzman, Rafa Siguion-Reyna, Richard Cunanan, Randy Villarama, Sky Labastilla, together with the Tanghalang Pilipino Actors Company. The show was staged in September 2016.

Der Kaufmann, an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice, relives the horror of the holocaust, with the Nazis directing the Jewish “actors”, underscoring the dehumanizing effect of racism and intolerance. Adapted for stage by Rody Vera, with Tuxqs Rutaquio co-directing, Der Kaufmann features the Tanghalang Pilipino Actors Company. The most awarded play during the 2014 Gawad Buhay! Awards, Der Kaufmann brought home seven (7) awards, including Outstanding Translation or Adaptation and Outstanding Ensemble for a Play or Musical.


A musical based on the Palanca Award-winning children’s book, Sandosenang Sapatos tells a powerful story of a father’s selfless love to his differently-abled daughter. Adapted for stage by Layeta Bucoy, with music by Jed Balsamo and Noel Cabangon, and direction by Tuxqs Rutaquio, Sandosenang Sapatos has effectively woven the magic brought about by wheelchair-bound Susie’s fantasy and the grim realities that she lives in. The musical garnered nominations from the 2014 Gawad Buhay! Awards, including one for Outstanding Children’s Production. Songs from the musical are also available on Spotify. The book of Sandosenang Sapatos is now a Hiyas Classic, and its premium edition is now available for purchase through OMF Publishing.

The shows mentioned will be streamed on iWant from June 12 to July 12.
