Joshua Garcia will be seen again in a teleserye more than a year after his last TV series The Killer Bride, which ended in January 2020.
Joshua joined the cast during the show's briefing via Zoom about the lock-in taping's safety protocols.
A screenshot of the Zoom meeting was posted by netizens on social media yesterday, May 13.
Lead stars Dimples, Charlie, Jake, and Jameson were present at the meeting.
Also in the Zoom meeting were Maxene Magalona, Gian Magdangal, Ria Atayde, Kaila Estrada, Aya Fernandez, Miko Raval, and Markus Paterson, as well as directors Dado Lumibao and Froy Leonardo.
During the project announcement in February 2021, Joshua’s name was not yet included on the list of cast members of Viral.
Based on the teaser that was launched along with the announcement, Charlie’s character will be a victim of a viral video that will change her life.
Dimples and Jake will play Charlie’s parents, while Jameson will be her love interest.
Joshua’s role has yet to be announced as of this writing.
Viral is produced by RCD Narratives, an ABS-CBN content-providing unit helmed by Roda Catolico dela Cerna.
RCD Narratives produced Joshua’s last teleserye, The Killer Bride, which aired from August 2019 to January 2020.
RCD Narratives is one of the four drama units under the umbrella of ABS-CBN's Scripted Format department with Ruel Santos Bayani as its head.
The other three are JRB Creative Production of business unit head Julie Anne R. Benitez (Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin), RGE Drama Unit of Rizza Gonzales Ebriega (Bagong Umaga) and Star Creatives helmed by Des M. De Guzman (Init sa Magdamag).
Viral is expected to air this 2021 on ABS-CBN’s broadcast platforms.
