TODAY, Saturday (June 20), GMA Network pays tribute to LGBTQ fathers who take pride in parenting and dads who are working on the frontlines amidst the pandemic with #GMATeleBahay’s two-part special episodes which were remotely shot and produced online.
“Para sa lahat ng amang may paninindigan…”
Spearheading the Father’s Day special titled ‘Beautiful Father’ is Kapuso comedian Super Tekla who portrays the role of a diligent gay father who unwillingly lives away from his son (David Remo) in order to make ends meet and provide for his education. Also starring in the heartwarming special is the equally entertaining Maey Bautista who plays as David’s aunt.
The comedy-drama special dedicated to all the fun and persevering LGBTQ fathers is under the helm of esteemed director Zig Dulay. It is also noteworthy to mention that the online special was filmed in different locations with Super Tekla in Quezon City, Maey in Pampanga, and David in Marikina.
“Pagbati at pagpupugay sa lahat ng frontliners at mga tatay...”
After the fun comes the tear-jerking and timely story titled ‘Proud Ako Sa’yo’ about a frontliner father who constantly worries for the safety of his son who, just like him, also risks his life to battle the on-going coronavirus pandemic. This second installment features veteran actor-director Ricky Davao as the father alongside award-winning Kapuso actor Martin del Rosario as his son.
This relevant and moving Father’s Day special dedicated to all the valiant frontliners and fathers is directed by LA Madridejos. Film director Isabel Quesada together with Martin’s family also lent a hand in making the special come into existence.
Meanwhile, Program Manager Dennis Bentulan and Senior Program Manager Helen Rose Sese were behind the concepts for both special episodes.
May #GMATeleBahay’s two-part specials remind everyone to express their gratitude and love to all fathers and father figures alike this coming Father’s Day. Catch the two special videos today only on GMA Network’s official social media accounts.
