GMA breaks into Georgia with dramas



GMA Network, through its content distribution subsidiary, GMA Worldwide, Inc. (GWI) brings four of its drama series to Georgia, the country at the crossroads of Europe and Asia.

Through the network’s first-ever acquisition deal with Georgian broadcaster Telecompany Pirveli, several GMA dramas are aired on TV Pirveli, the latest of which is “Impostora” that premiered last July 15.

Other GMA dramas acquired by TV Pirveli are “Stay With Me,” “The Stepdaughters” and “Angela.” The series are dubbed in Georgian and airs weekday afternoons.



“Impostora” is the remake of “The Impostor” distributed in at least 13 territories. It is also the first GMA scripted format to have a local adaptation in Cambodia. The Spanish-dubbed version of “Impostora” also had a successful run in Ecuador. It is the story of a woman with a disfigured face who goes under the knife to become beautiful, only to find out she will assume another woman’s life and identity. It stars Kris Bernal playing dual roles.



“Stay With Me” is about the struggles of Thea played by Yasmien Kurdi, a wife and a mother who tests positive for HIV.

“The Stepdaughters” is about two women destined to be rivals who suddenly became family when their single parents fall for one another and got married, making them stepsisters. It is top billed by Miss World 2013, Megan Young.
“Angela” is also a rivalry drama about half-sisters played by Sanya Lopez and Thea Tolentino who both possess superpowers: One can heal with her touch while the other causes pain.
