Julia Barretto confirmed on Monday that she will start shooting for the newest ABS-CBN drama series, Cara Y Cruz, which will go on the air via iWant and Kapamilya Channel.
In an interview with DJ Jhai Ho, Julia revealed, “Salamat sa Diyos, marami po akong makakasama sa teleseryeng ‘Cara Y Cruz.’ Mag-i-start na po kaming mag-taping sa August.
“Sana umere na po para mayroon kayong abangan sa ating Kapamilya Channel. So let’s keep praying for good things lang. Kapit lang, kapit lang tayo,” Barretto added.
Cara Y Cruz was first reported to be in development in February, when RGE Drama, a sub-unit of RSB Scripted Format, shared a photo of a meeting with Julia Barretto, Tony Labrusca, Loisa Andalio, Ronnie Alonte, Marco Gumabao, Barbie Imperial, and Heaven Peralejo.
No further details were given.
Cara Y Cruz had been slated for airing on ABS-CBN, until the government shutdown of the network’s TV and radio broadcast.
