After the virtual signing of the partnership, the Kapuso network will air Kapamilya films under Star Cinema starting this month.
Dubbed by GMA 7 as “historic,” the partnership is a sign of new opportunities for bigger collaborations between the so-called “rival” networks.
ABS-CBN Chief Executive Officer Carlo Katigbak considered this momentous event a “milestone.”
“Every storyteller’s dream is to have as many people as possible experience their creations. Now, because of the kindness of our friends at GMA, we have the special opportunity to bring our Kapamilya stories to a new audience,” Katigbak said.
He thanked GMA Network Films President Atty. Annette Gozon-Valdes and the other officials for approving the partnership. He also hopes that the Kapuso audience will positively receive their films.
“We hope the Kapusos find joy and inspiration in viewing our Star Cinema movies. And we also look forward to a new era of friendship and cooperation within our small industry.”
President and Chief Operating Officer Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr. also expressed his joy in the partnership.
“To us, we are very pleased because the significance of our partnership today ushers in possibility of a far broader set of conversations, potential partnerships and cooperation that will have the benefit not only mutually to GMA and ABS-CBN but as importantly, if not perhaps more importantly, to the benefit of the public we both serve – the Filipino viewer.”
Duavit also said that they look forward to more businesses between the two networks now that they have “broken the ice.”
