Dancing to the Beat of Life with GMA-7's New Primetime Series 'Time of My Life'

Known for producing groundbreaking programs, GMA Network introduces yet another unique and innovative show on Philippine TV. On August 1, the very first danserye titled Time of My Life premieres on GMA Telebabad.

Time of My Life features three of Starstruck's most talented discoveries who have all matured in their craft - Kris Bernal, Rocco Nacino and Mark Herras. Viewers should also look forward to seasoned actors Jean Garcia, Raymond Bagatsing and Cherie Gil showing off their dancing talent.
Packed with amazing dance and drama scenes, the danserye tells of Shane's (Kris) quest to fulfill her dream of becoming a real dancer. In the process, she uncovers things of the past as she explores the field of dancing.
Helping Shane achieve her dreams are two knights in shining armor: Jason (Rocco), her childhood friend; and Patrick (Mark), Jason's friend and founder of the Motion Masters dance group. With other friends, they compete against The Elite Crew led by Zaira (LJ Reyes) who is the protégé and stepdaughter of famous dancing queen, Lisa (Jean).
Because of the competition between Shane and Zaira, a former rivalry resurfaces between Lisa and Martha (Cherie), Shane's mother. Martha has long been angry and bitter because her dance partner and boyfriend, Fred, broke up with her to be with Lisa. Soon, the couple had a daughter named Lisette.
Unable to accept defeat, Martha schemed to dance with Fred again and set fire to the house where Lisa and Lisette were. However, Lisa followed Fred and, thus, only the child was believed to have perished in the fire.
This incident caused Fred and Lisa to part ways; Fred worked abroad while Lisa went back to her family and married Gregory (Emilio Garcia), the father of Zaira. On the other hand, Martha paid for her crime but kept with her in jail a secret about Fred and Lisa's child. Lisette did not really die in the fire but was saved by Martha's friend, Carlotta (Tanya Gomez). She was raised as Shane and grew up with a natural talent and interest in dancing.
After many years, Lisa, Fred and Martha cross paths again. To avenge herself, Martha discreetly manipulates the two to fight each other using their own daughter, Shane.
Will Fred and Lisa ever discover who Shane really is? Will this truth help or prevent the young dancer from fulfilling her dream? Will their family be reunited or drawn apart by arising complications?
A story about family, love and dreams, Time of My Life will inspire viewers to take hold of their loved ones as they work hard for their aim in life.
Completing the cast of the danserye are reputable actors: Ms. Caridad Sanchez as Lola Becky, the woman whom Patrick regarded as his grandmother; Rez Cortez as Douglas, Carlotta's husband who will make life difficult for Shane; Samantha Lopez as Lucinda, owner of the night club where Shane works; Geleen Eugenio as Janet, close friend of Lisa and choreographer of The Elite Crew; Joshua Zamora as Mario, Fred's best friend; and Ronnie Henares as Vernon, the lawyer who frees Martha from jail.
Time of My Life also showcases young talents who form the two dance troupes. The Elite Crew are: Steven Silva as John, Enzo Pineda as Donnie, Diva Motelaba as Lally, Yassi Pressman as Terry, Myra Carel (Jump In 1st runner up) as Paula. On the other hand, Motion Masters is composed of: Ryza Cenon as Rochelle, Sarah Lahbati as Pia, Sef Cadayona as Harry, Mayton Eugenio as Amera, Ken Chan as Rudolph, Teejay Marquez as Chicho, Renelee Asilum (Jump In grand winner) as Cynthia.
The very first danserye is based on original concept created for GMA Television by Senedy Que with head writer Des Garbes Severino, choreographers Miggy Tanchanco (modern) and Donald Balbuena (ballroom), and directors Mark Reyes (musicals) and Andoy Ranay (drama).
Beginning August 1, Time of My Life airs Monday to Friday on GMA-7's Telebabad block. It can also be seen worldwide through GMA Pinoy TV starting August 3.
