TWO industry giants in broadcasting and film—GMA Network and Regal Entertainment—sealed the deal for the biggest and most exciting collaborations via a virtual contract signing ceremony held yesterday, Sept. 7.
GMA and Regal offer the biggest telemovie collaboration of the year with “Regal Studio Presents.” Set to air beginning Sept. 11 on GMA-7, “Regal Studio Presents” is a weekly anthology that features feel-good, romantic, exciting and entertaining stories starring various Kapuso artists.
The two are also cooking up a variety of content to air across GMA channels that will definitely entice the Filipino audience. On GTV, Kapuso viewers can catch Regal classic movies via Regal Treasures every Friday afternoon. Meanwhile, Heart of Asia is set to bring the hit BL series “Ben X Jim” starting Sept. 26.
Apart from these, loyal Kapuso viewers who are craving for fresh content can expect new movie features from Regal to be seen on GMA’s various platforms in years to come.
This highly anticipated partnership combines the brand of storytelling that is uniquely Regal, with the reach and broadcast capability of GMA.
“We are glad that Mother Lily and Regal have agreed to show their quality films in GMA and to co-produce TV programs to be shown also in GMA. As everybody knows, Regal is one of the best producers of films in the Philippines and the Regal quality films that we have been showing in GMA have rated high and we are therefore looking forward to a mutually rewarding relationship with Regal,” said GMA Network Inc. chairman and chief executive officer, lawyer Felipe L. Gozon.
“Regal Entertainment has always kept a cordial and happy relationship with GMA-7. Not only as a business partner but as a friend. Through so many years of our film production, GMA has always been an ally, the supporter of our endeavors. That is why it is only fitting that in these more crucial and critical times, we remain together. We are strong together in providing the kind of entertainment that our audiences need. Thank you for giving us this opportunity, to affirm our friendship and alliance. Thank you for believing in Regal Entertainment in reaching out to our Filipino audience to share the wealth of our years of film production. Thank you for giving the next generation the bigger chance to see Regal and GMA go together through this extraordinary period and on to their post pandemic times. Thank you very much,” said president of Regal Entertainment Inc., Mother Lily Monteverde.
For the pilot episode of Regal Studio Presents, Kapuso stars Ken Chan and Sanya Lopez team up for the very first time in “That Thin Line Between,” featuring a story of neighbors who are at odds with each other.
In the upcoming episodes, viewers will witness more heartwarming stories starring sought-after love teams Gabbi Garcia and Khalil Ramos and Sofia Pablo and Allen Ansay.
