Because of You, produced by GMA Network, has captured the hearts of many Filipino viewers. According to AGB Nielsen, first week of the series got 19.2 percent household ratings compared to its competitor. And as of Jan. 19, the series was still on top.

Because of You, which started in November last year, is a light-hearted romantic series featuring the love triangle of Carla Abellana as Andrea, Rafael Rosell as Oliver and Gabby Concepcion as Jaime. This inspirational drama is about love, family and parenting — its joys and challenges.

Carla is excited over her latest project and the privilege of working with Gabby and Rafael, whom she finds professional and easy to work with.

“I’m really happy to work again with Gabby,” said Carla. “I am excited since I had worked with him briefly before and found him a very funny individual. I enjoyed the experience and learned more with him around. I’m also thrilled to be reunited with Bettinna Carlos and Tita Celia (Rodriguez).”

Gabby likewise reveals that he is very comfortable working with Carla and viewers will definitely enjoy watching their show since it is very light and full of good vibes.

“I worked with Carla before and I am so relaxed with her,” said Gabby. “As they say, it’s a walk in the park. I’ve worked with her before and I find her easy to work with. (Because of You) has a different approach and story. This is indeed a feel-good teleserye.”
