“MASUSING paghihimay ang ginawa namin para sa pinaka-bagong project ni Richard (Gutierrez) para masigurong mas bago at mas maganda ang maibibigay ng GMA para sa fans niya,” ang pagdedetalye ng blooming na blooming at freshness na Assistant VP for Drama ng GMA na si Ms. Redgie Acuña-Magno.
“This is Richard’s first ever foray into straight drama, that will present him to viewers as more mature and more ready to showcase his range as an actor.
“Beyond just admiration, we expect viewers to even respect him more and his talent.”
Rancho Paradiso ang working title ng project sa direksyon ni Ricky Davao at magtatampok din kila Mark Anthony Fernandez, Phillip Salvador, Rio Locsin, Mark Gil, Robert Arevalo at Gloria Romero.
“When you identify things you love about drama shows, the classic elements that hooked you to your favorites, you’d also see that in Richard’s project,” lahad ni Ms. Redgie with pride.
She is credible when she talks about drama as a genre, dahil siya rin ang executive producer ng Lovingly Yours, ang early Sunday afternoon tearjerker ni Ms. Helen Vela noong '80s at '90s.
Si Carla Abellana ang leading lady ni Richard sa Rancho Paradiso.
“Kaya hindi totoo yung tsismis na lilipat si Carla,” paglilinaw ni Ms. Redgie.
“Pre-planning started even before Richard shot Survivor Philippines. Since then, it had been intensive and we are all excited to deliver the finished product by May 2012 for the fans of GMA and Richard.”
Buti naman at kasama si Mark Anthony rito! Papapalitan ko na lang ang name ng thread na 'to kapag na-finalize na yung title ng serye.
