POTATO ON THE GO BULLETIN (TV):
GMA Network ups the ante of its primetime slate with the launch of another timeless and original drama series that promises to steal the televiewers' hearts via ONE TRUE LOVE. It will replace My Beloved beginning June 11 on GMA Telebabad.
The Kapuso Network once again takes a bold risk in presenting a fresh and absorbing drama that will soon be winning the hearts of Filipino television audiences everywhere. One True Love features the country’s bankable stable of stars in plum roles headlined by no less than GMA’s talented and promising artist Alden Richards as Tisoy together with the young and beautiful Louise delos Reyes as Elize.
Alden and Louise land their biggest roles to date as the lead stars of this program about the enduring power of love between two people from two different walks of life. Alden and Louise are both primed to star in this sweeping drama with their raw but powerful acting skills. The chemistry of the two onscreen is palpably strong and there has been brewing excitement among fans and viewers for Alden and Louise’s team-up.
Primetime viewing will never be the same again as GMA gathers in One True Love three of the country’s biggest and brightest actors in film and television: multitalented actress Jean Garcia as Ellen, the real mother of Tisoy; seasoned actor Raymond Bagatsing as Carlos, the workaholic and heartless husband of Leila and real father of Tisoy; and making her television debut as a Kapuso, versatile TV personality Agot Isidro as Leila, the scheming wife of Carlos. Agot is really excited and honoured to be part of the GMA family after signing a two-year exclusive contract with the network.
Completing the glittering roster of cast are Bembol Roco as Mayor Sandoval, the husband of Ellen who will help her take revenge on Carlos; Caridad Sanchez as Lola Tilda, the elderly woman who raised Tisoy; Benjie Paras as Douglas; Carlene Aguilar as Candice; Tiya Pusit as Yaya Brittany, the doting yaya of Elize; Wynwyn Marquez as Marla, the younger sister of Leila; Lucho Ayala as Troy, the rich suitor of Elize; Frencheska Farr as Violy.
The story of One True Love begins with Ellen, a hardworking janitress who falls madly in love with Carlos, a successful businessman who is already married to Leila. Unknown to Ellen, Carlos is not serious about their whirlwind romance and only becomes aware of his true feelings after finding out that she is pregnant.
Ellen tries to end her ties with Carlos after Leila starts attacking her. But Carlos wants to raise their child and tells Ellen that their child would have a better future with him. Ellen agrees with Carlos but unfortunately, Leila vehemently opposes this idea. She resents raising her husband’s illegitimate child so she plots a scheme to switch the child with someone else’s.
When Ellen gives birth, Leila is present to “help” out but in truth, she uses this opportunity to switch Ellen’s son with another newborn baby girl in the hospital. The moment Ellen sees her child, she immediately falls in love with her baby and tries to back out from the deal she made with Carlos. Furious, Carlos gets Ellen arrested for a fabricated crime so he can get full custody of their child. Helpless and powerless, Ellen swears vengeance on Carlos and Leila.
Meanwhile, Carlos showers his daughter Elize with love and attention not knowing that Leila switched Elize with his real child. His orphaned son grows up in the docks of Manila through the kindness shown by the people in the port district. Because of his mestizo and charming looks, he is given the moniker Tisoy. And by some weird twist of fate, Tisoy ends up working in the port owned by his real father Carlos.
Everything seems to be in place and going well for Tisoy and his adoptive grandmother Lola Tilda until one fateful night when he crosses paths with Elize, the rich daughter of Carlos. Tisoy is completely smitten with Elize’s beauty and she finds him charming too. Soon, the two become lovers and keep their romance a secret from Elize’s disapproving parents.
How long can Tisoy and Elize weather the odds of their forbidden romance? With Carlos and Ellen threatening to tear them apart, can the star-crossed lovers fulfill their destiny to once and for all be together even in the next lifetime? What will happen to Leila if her secret is finally revealed? What will be Carlos’ reaction if he finds out the truth about the real identity of Tisoy? Will Ellen continue with her scheme to separate Tisoy and Elize if the truth about their identities is exposed?
With director Andoy Ranay at the helm and original concept by Suzette Doctolero, ONE TRUE LOVE will surely touch and inspire audiences beginning June 11 right after Makapiling Kang Muli on GMA Telebabad.
