“DESTINED To Be Yours” is the confirmed title of the upcoming teleserye of the phenomenal love team of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza.

Although GMA Network has been tight-lipped about the projects, photos and posts online have confirmed it especially during the shoot of the network’s Christmas special which will air on December 18.

Photos of Maine with actresses Janice de Belen and Ina Feleo have also been shared online since Monday, with fans readily speculating that two ladies are part of the cast.

On Tuesday, the Kapuso network’s official Facebook page uploaded a teaser of its line up of teleseryes for 2017. One shows a lady in a yellow dress on a swing. Though the face wasn’t shown, fans can easily identify her as Maine. Also shown was Alden sketching his “dream house.”

All the persons behind the show were told not to share any information about the project until Friday when GMA-7’s omnibus plug about its upcoming Kapuso shows for 2017 will be aired.

But a PEP report has already shared that the taping will start next week for Maine and Alden. Fans of the “Eat Bulaga” hosts might not be seeing them daily on the noontime show because they will have to shoot for the series three times a week.

Irene Villamor, a protégé of Bb. Joyce Bernal, will direct the series. Her other credits include the comedy film, “Camp Sawi.”

The report reveals that Alden will play a young architect named Benjie while Maine will portray the role of a hardworking girl from the province named

The conflict will start when Alden will visit the hometown of Maine for a building project. She will oppose it for the love of her little town.

The PEP report also mentioned Janice de Belen and Gardo
Versoza as the actors who will be playing Maine’s parents.

Lotlot de Leon will portray Alden’s mother with Boots
Anson-Roa as his grandmother and Ina Feleo as his aunt, who is also an architect.

Sheena Halili will play the role of Maine’s best friend while beauty queen-singer Koreen Medina will portray a rich girl who is in love with Alden’s character.

On Sunday, the upcoming teleserye slated to air first quarter next year, will be officially announced at GMA’s Christmas Special.
