“The Cheating Game"
The GMA film, “The Cheating Game,” will be available worldwide on Netflix beginning October 26. Top-billed by two of the Philippines’ highly talented artists, Julie Anne San Jose and Rayver Cruz, “The Cheating Game” delves into the psyche of two individuals who react differently to betrayal after being cheated.
In “The Cheating Game,’’ Hope (Julie) is an idealistic young professional who thinks she can change the world. She is devoted to her fiancé and the non-governmental organization (NGO) they’ve built together. Until a sex video of her boyfriend with another woman surfaces.
Walking away from the engagement, the NGO and the life she thought was hers, Hope starts her new career as a content producer in a company. Unknown to her, this firm moonlights as a troll factory. She becomes determined never to be outsmarted by a guy again. She designs a ‘cheat sheet’ detailing the ‘anatomy of a cheater’ and uses this as her guide as she navigates the dating world again. She then meets Miguel (Rayver), a self-made businessman who exudes green flags for a partner. Hope thought she had found the perfect guy. But as they become closer, long-kept secrets begin to surface.
“The Cheating Game” is produced by GMA Public Affairs under GMA Pictures and is co-written and directed by best-selling author Rod Marmol. The film is based on the original concept and story by Peabody award-winning documentary writer and producer Shao Masula and co-written by Jessie Villabrille, a head writer for some of the distinguished GMA primetime series.
