GMA Network opens 2016 with the launch of the newest Afternoon Prime series, Wish I May. It premieres on January 18 after Eat Bulaga.
Wish I May tells the story of how two teens find solace and eventually, fall in love with each other amid tumultuous circumstances surrounding their families brought about by the disease called “chimerism” a medical condition wherein an individual has two sets of DNA.
This fascinating soap opera stars the youngest love team of the network Miguel Tanfelix and Bianca Umali. Armed with their natural acting skills and onscreen chemistry, Miguel and Bianca are all set to tackle mature roles in the series as they portray the characters of Tristan, the childhood best friend of Carina who grew up with a dysfunctional family that’s why he is so independent; and Carina, a charming, kind and sweet lady wh o works hard to gain the attention and affection of her parents, respectively.
At a press conference on Friday, GMA proudly presented a stellar cast to lend support to the young pair in Camille Prats, Mark Anthony Fernandez, Mark Herras, Alessandra de Rossi, Glydel Mercado, Rochelle Pangilinan, Neil Ryan Sese, Juan Rodrigo, Marni Lapuz, Sancho delas Alas, and Prince Villanueva.
Wish I May hopes to spark the curiosity of viewers about tales of great love finding evidence. It also dramatically narrates Olivia’s (Camille) pursuit of her maternal rights over her long-lost daughter, compounded by the rare condition of chimerism.
Neal del Rosario and Mark Sicat Dela Cruz helm the series and Ken de Leon is heading the writing team under the creative direction of Roy Iglesias, Dode Cruz and Denoy Punio.
