MANILA, Philippines – It’s happening: ABS-CBN’s Star Cinema films will be airing on GMA-7, in a rare partnership between the rival networks.
Among the Star Cinema movies set to air on GMA-7 are Alone/Together starring top ABS-CBN love team Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil, It Takes a Man and A Woman starring John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo, and Hello Love Goodbye with Kathryn Bernardo and Alden Richards.
A virtual contract signing was held on Tuesday, April 5, with GMA executives Gilberto Duavit Jr, Philip Yalung, Annette Gozon Valdes, and Joey Abacan present, alongside ABS-CBN executives Carlo Katigbak, Mark Lopez, Cory Vidanes, and Ricardo Tan Jr.
The partnership between the two networks comes nearly two years after ABS-CBN went off-air to comply with the cease-and-desist order of the National Telecommunications Commission.
ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal was later blocked by the House of Representatives in July 2020, forcing the network to find new platforms for its shows and content. – Rappler.com
