Following the critical and ratings success of its original series on good governance – Bayan Ko – GMA News TV International launches a groundbreaking new series entitled TITSER, which discusses issues on Philippine education.
Topbilled by multi-awarded character actress Lovi Poe, casting for GMA News TV International’s female-dominated series TITSER is now complete. Lovi is joined by singer-actress Agot Isidro and by indie film darling Mara Lopez.
Lovi plays Michelle in TITSER: a poverty stricken high school girl who dreams of becoming a teacher, but whose only option after graduation is to work as a housemaid. Mara Lopez plays Rosa — Michelle’s best friend and toughest competitor, who ends up a single mother. The two girls struggle against fate and financial limitations to reach their goal of finishing school. Their mentor and inspiration is Teacher Sandra, portrayed by Agot Isidro, who leads her own fight against a corrupt principal.
Actors Gardo Versoza, Irma Adlawan, Carl Guevarra and Rocco Nacino will also be starring in the series – which is now being shot on location in Boso Boso, Antipolo.
TITSER is directed by acclaimed indie filmmaker and head of the Ateneo Filipino Department Alvin Yapan and written by Bayan Ko’s creator and News TV channel head Nessa Valdellon. It is filmed on high definition and goes through the color grading process.
TITSER begins airing on August 24 on GMA News TV International.
