GMA NETWORK is going full blast taping an exciting lineup of new soaps which are obviously intended for airing in the new year 2021. 

Now on lock in taping is “Owe My Love”, a sexy romantic-comedy topbilled by Lovi Poe, Benjamin Alves, Winwyn Marquez and Ai Ai de las Alas. 

It’s already being talked about because of the shenanigans of Mystica in the lock in taping. She has since been replaced by Patani of “Survivor Philippines”. 

Somehow, they should thank Mystica as they already got a lot of advanced publicity. Also in “Owe My Love” are comedians Nova Villa, Leo Martinez, Ruby Rodriguez, Mike Nacua, Kiray Celis, Buboy Villar, Brod Pete, Divine Tetay, Donita Nose, Mahal, Jason Francisco plus Jackielou Blanco and Ryan Eigenmann.

Also now on lock in taping in Batangas is “Babawiin Ko ang Lahat”, a family drama topbilled by Carmina Villaroel and John Estrada. Completing the cast are Kristoffer Martin, Tanya Garcia, Pauline Mendoza (who's being launched in this soap), Manolo Pedroza, Dave Bornea and Liezel Lopez. 

In contrast to the “maligalig” taping of “Owe My Love”, this one is going on very smoothly and John Estrada has openly praised the GMA staff for “putting us in a very comfortable environment for our one-month lock in taping. Di po kami tinipid. Nagtatrabaho ka pero parang nasa bakasyon ka.” 

As one staffer says: “Ganyan talaga kapag walang pasaway sa cast.”

Three other new shows slated for early next year are: “First Yaya” with Gabby Concepcion, Sanya Lopez, Pancho Magno, Pilar Pilapil, Cassy Lopez, JD Domagoso and Glenda Garcia. They were supposed to start this month but this has been moved to January after the Christmas holidays.

"Legal Wives" with Dennis Trillo as a Muslim man with three wives: Alice Dixson, Andrea Torres and Bianca Umali, supported by Cherie Gil, Al Tantay, Bernard Palanca and Kevin Santos, introducing Starstruck 2019 winners Shayne Sava and Kim de Leon.

The last one is the psychological drama “Ang Dalawang Ikaw” starring the RitKen love team of Rita Daniela and Ken Chan, supported by Anna Vicente as the other woman. 

These are just a few of the new shows being prepared by the Kapuso Network for 2021. Watch out for more exciting shows to welcome the New Year, to be announced soon.
