When GMA-7’s danserye Time of My Life aired its pilot episode last night, August 2, it was able to register 24.7% in the Household ratings of AGB Nielsen among Mega Manila households.
PEP’s Scoopbox reported that TOML was pitted against ABS-CBN’s Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin (19.4%) and The Biggest Loser Pinoy Edition (14.7%). The show, which stars Kris Bernal, Mark Herras, and Rocco Nacino, was the fourth most watched primetime show last night behind Munting Heredera (29.2%), 24 Oras (25.8%), and Amaya (25.4%).
The opening sequence of Time of My Life features the revelation night of a contest called The New Dancing Queen.
The event started with an explosive dance number—literally! Fireworks lit up the stage as Patrick (Mark Herras) and Jason (Rocco Nacino) engaged each other in a showdown.
Famous dancing queen Lisa (Jean Garcia) hosted the contest, which had Shane (Kris Bernal) and Zaira (LJ Reyes) as the top two contestants.
The competition between the two was aggravated by the colorful past of their parents.
Martha (Cherie Gil) has long been angry and bitter because her dance partner and boyfriend, Fred (Raymond Bagatsing), broke up with her to be with Lisa (Jean Garcia).
Tragedy strikes, causing Shane (Kris Bernal) to grow up without knowing the identity of her real parents. As Shane tries to achieve her dream of becoming a real dancer, she uncovers things of the past. Will this truth help or prevent the young dancer from fulfilling her dream?
GMA-7’s original series also showcases young talents who form the two dance troupes.
Patrick (Mark Herras) is the founder of the Motion Masters dance group. Motion Masters is composed of: Ryza Cenon as Rochelle, Sarah Lahbati as Pia, Sef Cadayona as Harry, Mayton Eugenio as Amera, Ken Chan as Rudolph, Teejay Marquez as Chicho, Renelee Asilum (Jump In grand winner) as Cynthia.
The Elite Crew is led by Zaira (LJ Reyes) who is the protegé and stepdaughter of famous dancing queen, Lisa (Jean).
Its members are Steven Silva as John, Enzo Pineda as Donnie, Diva Motelaba as Lally, Yassi Pressman as Terry, Myra Carel (Jump In 1st runner up) as Paula.
Completing the cast of the dance-serye are Ms. Caridad Sanchez as Lola Becky, the woman whom Patrick regards as his grandmother; Rez Cortez as Douglas, Carlotta’s husband who will make life difficult for Shane; Samantha Lopez as Lucinda, owner of the night club where Shane works; Geleen Eugenio as Janet, close friend of Lisa and choreographer of The Elite Crew; Joshua Zamora as Mario, Fred’s best friend; and Ronnie Henares as Vernon, the lawyer who frees Martha from jail.
This series is based on an original concept created for GMA Television by Senedy Que with head writer Des Garbes Severino, choreographers Miggy Tanchanco (modern) and Donald Balbuena (ballroom), and directors Mark Reyes (musicals) and Andoy Ranay (drama).
Time of My Life airs Monday to Friday on GMA-7’s Telebabad block. It can also be seen worldwide through GMA Pinoy TV starting August 3.
