Alden Richards, together with the cast and crew, altogether watched the pilot episode of The Gift at their taping location. Even their regional stations set up a viewing party in support for the newest Kapuso primetime series.
Prior to the pilot episode, GMA Network threw a series of presscons, blogcons, events, and mall tours for the cast of ‘The Gift.‘ The Kapuso Network is obviously betting on Alden and banking on his recent success as part of the highest-grossing Filipino Film of All Time with Kathryn Bernardo in ‘Hello, Love, Goodbye.’ His home station also gave Alden his Asia’s Multimedia Star title in one of his solo presscons. It’s really a big push for Alden and his new show.

Matindi po ang pinagdaanan sa paghahanda nito, iniaangat namin ang proyektong ito na handog namin para sa ating mga kababayan at Kapuso nating walang paningin at may mga kapansanan,” Alden prayed before the pilot airing started.
