MANILA - Eddie Garcia portrays a man longing for the company of his family in the first teaser of ABS-CBN's "Give Love on Christmas."

In the 45-second preview, the 85-year-old Garcia prepares a feast and sits at a dining table. By his lonesome, he imagines the empty table filled with laughter.

Memories of a shared meal with his family members -- portrayed by Dimples Romana, Aiko Melendez, Carlo Aquino and Louise Abuel -- bring a smile to his face. However, the old man faces the realization that he is without company, even as Christmas nears.

"Ang gusto ko lang ay makasama ang mahal ko sa buhay, ang makasalo sila gaya ng dati. Ang tangi kong hiling ngayong Pasko ay mabuo ang aking pamilya," he says.

The teaser, which was released on Monday night, is specifically for "The Gift Giver," one of three offerings of "Give Love on Christmas" under the direction of Jerome Pobocan.

Producer Dreamscape Entertainment Television has yet to announced its premiere date and whether "Give Love on Christmas" will comprise of one-off episodes or miniseries.
