The GMO Unit also produced Sylvia's breakthrough afternoon series The Greatest Love, which aired from September 2016 to April 2017.

This serves as Arjo and Sylvia's first full-length teleserye together.

They had the chance to work together in the 2014 Filipino adaptation of Pure Love, wherein Sylvia had a special role as the handicapped mother of Arjo's character.

The new series is also the reunion of Sylvia and Teresa in a drama series.

Both played major kontrabida roles in the 1997 drama series Esperanza, both as a villain to Judy Ann Santos.

The upcoming show will also be directed by The Greatest Love director Mervyn Brondial.
