New GMA Network Primetime RomCom series will showcase the unique beauty and rich culture of the Queen City of the South – CEBU.
INDAY WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU, produced by GMA News and Public Affairs and directed by Monti Parungao and Rember Gelera will star award-winning actress Barbie Forteza and long-time on-screen love tandem and good friend Derrick Monasterio in a rags-to-riches plot that centers on the life of the rich and entrepreneurial families of Cebu City.
The series which will air on Monday (May 21) will mark the return of Barbie Forteza to the primetime slot in the character of the overly optimistic “Happylou” or the “Inday” in the story.
INDAY WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU will also paint the stories of Cebuanos and of the Filipino family as seen through the eyes of the Manileña girl.
Happylou is a lechon store assistant whose life makes a topsy-turvy turn when she makes a career move away from Manila in search for her father in Cebu.
Barbie and Derrick shared during a blogcon that the new series from GMA News and Public Affairs is going to be shot almost entirely in Cebu. About 80% of the show will have Cebu as a backdrop, they are scheduled to do more shoots in the province in the coming weeks.
Barbie however disclosed that neither her or Derrick is from the province and that they only know of Manilyn Reynes as the only pure blooded Cebuano in the cast of INDAY WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU. So in principle, it’s possible that the only true “Inday” in the series is Manilyn who will play the role of Dessa, the mother of Happylou (Barbie).
Also joining the DerBie tandem in the series are Juancho Trivino (Ernest), Kim Rodriguez (Ericka), Gladys Reyes (Amanda), Tina Paner (Irene), Nova Villa (Leonor), Ricky Davao (Philip), Kimpoy Feliciano (Frank), Buboy Villar, Fliptop Artist Mzhayt, Price Tagg, and Super Tekla as Loreng.
The series will also feature the all grown up “Lumen Twins” Charisse and Charlotte Hermoso.
INDAY WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU also features New Zealand-based Pinoy vlogger and Internet Star Kimpoy Feliciano, as well as character actor Buboy Villar and Fliptop Artists Mzhayt and Price Tagg.
Written by Zig Dulay and Nathan Arciaga, INDAY WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU is all set to give regular GMA primetime series viewers a different RomCom flavor with an exclusive tour of Cebu beginning May 21.
