GMA-7 and Quantum Films bring to light the feel-good and inspiring series What We Could Be beginning August 29 on GMA Telebabad.

Known for producing box office movies like English Only Please, #WalangForever, Ang Babae sa Septic Tank and Ekstra, Quantum Films now ventures into the TV scene in collaboration with the Philippines’ leading broadcast company, GMA Network.

Three of the country’s sought-after and talented stars headline this much awaited primetime soap: Miguel Tanfelix as Franco, Ysabel Ortega as Cynthia and Yasser Marta as Lucas.

Miguel shares that this is by far the most mature role he has ever portrayed, “Isa ito sa mga dream role ko, someone with a complex background kaya very mysterious. Perfect project din siya para sa age namin dahil ito ‘yung phase na ang daming uncertainties sa buhay, hindi pa masyadong kilala ang sarili and may mga what ifs.”

Ysabel, on the other hand, admits that she feels pressured on her first lead role, “Definitely kinakabahan ako pero at the same time, confident ako na maganda ang nagawa namin. Nakatulong din sa akin ‘yung support system at teamwork namin ni Miguel. This project is a good chance for us to experiment and learn as actors.”

Yasser considers this show as a major turning point in his career, “Ang laking project nito at achievement siya sa buhay ko. Nagsimula ako from scratch sa showbiz and ngayon, binigyan ako ng opportunity to work with a great cast. Para sa akin, kahit ano namang i-offer na project, lagi ko lang binibigay ang best ko.”

Set in the quaint town of Sta. Barbara, the series follows the relatable story of three young individuals who juggle personal aspirations, family problems and relationship issues while reaching for their dreams.

Is succeeding both in relationship and in career simply not possible? How far must someone go and sacrifice for the sake of his/her family?

Joining them is a powerhouse cast: Cinemalaya 2022 Best Supporting Actor Soliman Cruz, Aleck Bovick, Pamela Prinster, Hailey Mendes, Lia Salvador, Bimbo Bautista, EJ Jallorina, Joel Saracho, Art Acuña, Vince Crisostomo, Joyce Ann Burton and Celeste Legaspi.

Catch the world premiere of What We Could Be – under the helm of award-winning director Jeffrey Jeturian – beginning August 29, weeknights at 8:50 p.m., on GMA and on GTV from Monday to Thursday, 11:30-12:15 a.m., and every Friday at 11-11:45 p.m.
