Kapuso homegrown artists and "Sparkle" stars Ruru Madrid and Bianca Umali headline the new romantic drama series “The Write One”, the first collaboration between Philippine GMA Network and pan-regional over-the-top (OTT) video streaming service Viu.

Streaming on Viu Philippines starting March 18, and premiering on March 20 on GMA, GTV, Pinoy Hits, and I Heart Movies, “The Write One” is a ground-breaking story about Liam (Ruru), a frustrated writer who is given a chance to rewrite his love and life story with the help of a mysterious typewriter. Joining Ruru and Bianca are fellow Sparkle artists Mikee Quintos and Paul Salas.

"The Write One" is produced by GMA Public Affairs – the same team that created the Philippines’ Most Watched TV show for 2022, "Lolong," and the hit mystery-romance miniseries "Love You Stranger."

“I’m really also excited to be given this chance to work with Bianca in a romantic drama series like this,” says Ruru. “I’m also happy to be reunited with GMA Public Affairs after I did ‘Lolong’ with them, which is really a huge success,” he added.

The series likewise sees the TV reunion of veteran actors Lotlot De Leon and Ramon Christopher who play Liam’s parents. Further giving life to the story are highly-esteemed character actors Mon Confiado, Alma Concepcion, and Art Acuna. "Sparkle" stars Kokoy De Santos, Royce Cabrera, Kaloy Tingcungco, Analyn Barro, Yvette Sanchez, and Euwenn Mikaell Aleta complete the cast.
