After the death of his character in Ika-6 Na Utos, Mike Tan is tapped to be the leading man in a new GMA-7 series.
This time, he will be paired with Yasmien Kurdi in the Kapuso teleserye titled Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka.
Last October 16, a story conference was held for the new show, which is intended for the GMA Afternoon Prime block.
Other cast members include Martin del Rosario, Ina Feleo, and Jackie Rice (not in photo below).
Gina Alajar takes a break from directing teleseryes since she will resume acting duties for Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka.
This drama series will be helmed by three directors: veteran movie and TV director Maryo J. Delos Reyes, ABS-CBN-turned-GMA director Neal Del Rosario, and former assistant director for teleseryes Rado Peru.
Aside from this project, Direk Maryo will also helm GMA-7's new primetime series titled The One That Got Away.
Yasmien wrote in her Instagram post, "New Show soon! on GMA Afternoon Prime. Ang dami naming directors hehe ang saya! #gmaafternoonprime #HindiKoKayangIwanKa"
The drama series also marks the first time that three StarStruck royalties are working together in a project.
Yasmien was the First Princess of StarStruck 1, making her the runner-up of Ultimate Survivor Jennylyn Mercado.
Mike was the Ultimate Male Survivor of StarStruck 2, while Jackie was hailed as the Female Ultimate Survivor of StarStruck 3.
Mike and Yasmien's previous projects were also Kapuso afternoon shows.
Yasmien starred in the drama series Sa Piling Ni Nanay with Katrina Halili, Jillian Ward, and Mark Herras. It aired from June 2016 to January 2017.
Meanwhile, Mike's character in the top-rating teleserye Ika-6 Na Utos was already killed last August. The show has been airing since December 2016.
No airing date has been announced yet for Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka.
