GMA produced drama anthology goes to Netflix

February is shaping up to be an exciting month for Kapuso viewers as GMA Network’s exceptional and one-of-a-kind drama anthology ‘I Can See You’ premieres on Netflix Philippines beginning February 15.

I Can See You, which features four mini-series produced by four different teams, uses a common visual storytelling device – the use of a camera as a witness to the tales of love and mystery from everyday people; hence the title – I Can See You.
