New ‘I Can See You’ faces introduced

This October 12, GMA Network paints a realistic picture of marriage in the third installment of the unique drama anthology ‘I Can See You: High-Rise Lovers’ on the Telebabad block.

Set to heat up primetime TV viewing this Monday are the lead stars of ‘High-Rise Lovers’ – Kapuso Premier Drama Actress Lovi Poe, actress-beauty queen Winwyn Marquez and multitalented Kapuso actor Tom Rodriguez.

In observance of anti-COVID-19 protocols alongside the Network’s precautionary measures, the cast and crew of the show underwent RT-PCR tests, lock-in tapings and strictly practiced government-mandated safety and health protocols on the set.

Lovi shares her trust in the network and her excitement to return to work prompted her to take on the project, “’Yung tiwala ko sa network and sa buong team really just made me want to go back to work.

“Even before the pandemic, safety always comes first when it comes to our production. It wasn’t a hard decision for me.

“I’m just really excited to see my friends and work with the whole team again.”

Winwyn, who seals her acting comeback with this project, reveals what she finds most interesting about her character, “Ysabel is very free-spirited and she doesn’t like commitments. She just wants to have fun and ang iniisip niya ‘yung sarili niya.

“I think a lot of young viewers can relate to her character. But deep inside we all just want to find love.” 

Meanwhile, Tom expresses how small-scale projects such as their weekly series can be of help in the entertainment industry during this pandemic, “Natututo kaming gumapang ulit bago maglakad. It’s really a nice training wheel para we can get used to the swing of things again.

“So if ever they’re going to attempt to do big projects from the ground up, mas kaya siyang ma-accomplish. For me these small-scale projects, they’re a nice training ground.”

‘High-Rise Lovers’ follows the story of married couple Samantha (Lovi) and Luis (Tom) whose relationship dwindles as their opposing goals in life get the best of them. 

After moving into a new condominium unit, Samantha continues to strive for a big promotion at work while Luis, an unemployed contractor, is forced to accept a renovation job for another occupant – the mysterious and sultry Ysabel (Winwyn). 

Will Luis yield to the temptation of a new lover who comforts his bruised ego and will Samantha realize that her marriage is still worth saving?

Also starring in the episode are Teresa Loyzaga as Greta Fontanilla, Samantha’s boss and mentor; and Kenneth “Tetay” Ocampo as Ru Paul Esguerra, workmate and loyal friend of Samantha.

Catch the premiere of ‘I Can See You: High-Rise Lovers’ – under the helm of esteemed director Monti Parungao – beginning October 12, weeknights, right after Encantadia only on GMA-7.
