Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil are reuniting with blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina for their upcoming teleserye, “Make It With You.”
The real-life and onscreen partners, along with Garcia-Molina, announced the development in a live stream from producer Star Creatives on Monday night.
Star Creatives is also the team behind “Dolce Amore” and “Forevermore,” the last two primetime series that starred Soberano and Gil.
The live video showed the couple, Garcia-Molina, and cast member Fumiya Sankai on location in Croatia, where the series will be partly set.
“In the story, kailangan naming ng isang bansa na malayo ang Pilipinas at kakaunti ang Pilipino,” Garcia-Molina said of the choice of setting.
“Through research, napag-alaman na dito sa Croatia, sobrang kaunti ng Pinoy. To keep to its truth, dito tayo nagpunta. It’s something new to the Filipinos also… We need it for the story,” she said.
While they kept mum on the details of the story, Garcia-Molina described the characters of Soberano and Gil as “very fun” — a departure from their most recent roles, in the film “Alone/Together.”
“We want to give you something that you will enjoy every night, but at the end of the day, we want to tell you something of good moral obligation,” she added.
The “LizQuen” tandem and Garcia-Molina last collaborated in 2017 for the Star Cinema film “My Ex and Whys.” Prior, they worked together in “Forevermore” and “Dolce Amore.”
