The wait is over! Are you ready for GROWING UP? The ultimate barkada experience (U.B.E.) is so here! With ABS-CBN’s newest series, “Growing Up,” starring Kathryn Bernardo, Julia Montes, Diego Loyzaga and TV’s newest heartthrob, Daniel Padilla.
Its been awhile since the original GIMIK, a barkada show on ABSCBN where I really can relate. Well take it from the same batch where I belong. And then theres second generation of G-MIK topbilled John Prats, Heart Evanglista, Angelica Panganiban and Camille Prats. And now the generation of today!
Follow the story of childhood best friends, Ella (Kathryn Bernado) and Tammy (Julia Montes) as they rally their friends to help raise money for Ms. Lisa Ortega (Maricar Reyes), their favorite teacher who was diagnosed with a serious ailment. Ella and Tammy together with their friends join various contests in their community aiming to seize the biggest price to raise funds for their beloved Ms. Ortega who, despite being in a serious condition, continue to guide them in their journey as teenagers.
In the process of trying to help Ms. Ortega, the whole barkada is confronted with their own strengths and weaknesses as they discover what ‘growing up’ really entails. The ups and downs of their experiences change the way they think, dream, and love ultimately leading to their own growth.
Featuring some of the most promising stars of this country such as Neil Coleta, Yen Santos, EJ Fallurin, and Kiray and directed by Lino Cayetano, “Growing Up” will reflect what teens these days are really going through. Don’t miss the premiere of “Growing Up” this September 4 on ABS-CBN.
