MANILA—Already boasting a strong lineup consisting of current and classic ABS-CBN programs, Kapamilya Channel is also poised to debut fresh offerings, going by a teleserye announcement on Friday.

RSB Scripted Format, an ABS-CBN production unit, introduced the ensemble cast of "Cara Y Cruz," a project long rumored to be in the works.

"The secret is finally out!" the unit tweeted, with a photo of a Zoom meeting among stars Julia Barretto, Tony Labrusca, Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte, Marco Gumabao, Barbie Imperial, and Heaven Peralejo.

No further details were given.

"Cara Y Cruz" was first reported to be in development in February, when RGE Drama, a sub-unit of RSB Scripted Format, shared a photo of a meeting with Barretto.

Subsequent meetings of RGE Drama with Labrusca, Andalio, and Alonte indicated that they, too, were set to star in a project.

Now it has been revealed: Their projects were one and the same, with "Cara Y Cruz" marking the rare coming together of several stars from their generation.

Notably, Barretto and Labrusca, and Andalio and Alonte are tandems that have each starred in successful projects.

"Cara Y Cruz" had been slated for airing on ABS-CBN, until the government shutdown of the network's TV and radio broadcast, and subsequent launch of Kapamilya Channel.
