Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap Headline ABS-CBN and GMA’s First Joint Project!
Unbreak My Heart is ABS-CBN and GMA’s first joint project that stars Jodi Sta. Maria, Richard Yap, Joshua Garcia, and Gabbi Garcia.
Jodi Sta. Maria and Richard Yap will be returning to the TV screen very soon. On Monday, January 23, ABS-CBN and GMA announced their first joint project. Jodi and Richard will headline Unbreak My Heart, which will be shot in Switzerland and aired this year.
In an announcement posted on both networks’ social media accounts, Joshua Garcia and Gabbi Garcia will join Jodi and Richard in the show. Additionally, part of the cast is director Laurice Guillen, Eula Valdes, MGA rising actor Will Ashley, Nikki Valdez, Bianca De Vera, and Maey Bautista.
The project will be streamed on Viu in 15 countries. Emmanuel Quindo Palo and Dolly Dulu will be directing Unbreak My Heart.
A first for Philippine television
The project makes history for both networks. After all, this will be the first time that artists from both sides will be working together on a project. Jodi Sta. Maria, who was recently seen in the film Labyu with an Accent, said that she is excited not only to reunite with Richard Yap but to take part in the show that both networks produced.
“This collaboration will definitely really bring opportunities not only to the network but also for the people working for the network, the people in the industry,” Jodi said.
Moreover, Richard expressed his joy of being with Jodi, whom he starred with in two ABS-CBN shows. The most notable one is Be Careful with My Heart, which launched his career.
“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,” he said.
Joshua, who is finishing his role as Brian in Mars Ravelo’s Darna, is excited and honored to be part of the show, too. Gabbi, known to many as Sanggre Alena in the 2016 edition of Encantadia and one of GMA’s rising actresses, expressed her excitement for the project as well.
The principal shooting of the show will start very soon.
