ALDEN Richards will be the first star to topbill GMA-7’s new drama anthology, “I Can See You”, proving that he’s now really the number one “pambato” of the Kapuso station. He will be taping the show’s very first episode entitled “Love in the Balcony” this Friday, August 28.

Appearing with him as his leading lady is Jasmine Curtis Smith, who co-starred with him in the movie “Imagine Me and You”. Also in the cast is Pancho Magno. The show will be a weekly program with different episodes and different stars who are paired for the first time, like Tom Rodriguez and Winwyn Marquez, Paolo Contis and Andrea Torres. Scheduled to do a love triangle story are real life sweethearts Dennis Trillo and Jennylyn Mercado, with Rhian Ramos as the third wheel in their relationship.

The network is following the strict safety protocols now used as guideline in shows that have already taped fresh new episodes earlier, like “Magpakailanman”, “Wish Ko Lang” and “Dear Uge”. Also scheduled to resume taping is the afternoon soap, “Prima Donnas”, and the primetime show, “Descendants of the Sun”, which will have locked in tapings to insure the safety of its stars and crew who are just too happy to be working and earning again.
