Geoff Eigenmann returns to GMA-7 two years after he left the Kapuso network.
He is set to join a new drama series titled Contessa, with Glaiza de Castro in the titular role.
A story conference for this new drama series was held last night, December 5.
This is Geoff's first teleserye with GMA after he transferred to ABS-CBN in 2016. In the Kapamilya network, he became a part of the daytime series Be My Lady.
Geoff and Glaiza first worked together as a pair in the 2010 series Grazilda, where Glaiza also assumed the title role.
In this project, Glaiza will also be paired with Jak Roberto. They will form a love triangle with Geoff.
Gabby Eigenmann, Geoff's cousin, will also play an important role in Contessa. This is the first time that they will be working together in a drama series.
Other cast members include Jak Roberto, Lauren Young, Phytos Ramirez, Leandro Baldemor, Will Ashley, and Dominic Roco.
Freelance actress Bernadette Allyson, who is currently in ABS-CBN's Wansapanataym: Jasmin's Flower Powers, is also a part of the series.
Tetchie Agbayani, who has been doing teleseryes for ABS-CBN for the past 10 years, makes her Kapuso comeback via this drama series.
Her last GMA-7 appearance was in the superhero series Super Twins aired in 2007, while her last TV project was the Kapamilya daytime series The Greatest Love.
Contessa serves as the follow-up project of Glaiza after she portrayed the role of Pirena in the requel of Encantadia, and in the sequel of Mulawin vs. Ravena.
The 29-year-old actress already did a shoot for the new series, which she posted on her Instagram account.
