After the success of Barbie Forteza and Andre Paras’ tandem in the recently concluded top-rating afternoon series The Half Sisters, their onscreen love team returns as Maria Rosario “Maru” Carreon and Bryan Ford in That’s My Amboy.

This is GMA Network’s newest primetime offering beginning January 25 on its flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV.

That’s My Amboy is a light, romantic-comedy series that will surely pull the heartstrings of viewers and make them feel good and ‘kilig’ every night.

Maru (Barbie) is a simple yet determined girl who seeks to do her best in life, inspired by her mother’s love for her. Bryan (Andre), a young actor who is the hottest leading man on film and television, seeks to be truly appreciated by his girl and his family. The series depicts their unusual work relationship as it blossoms into a beautiful friendship and one great love story.

In the series, Bryan is the reason why Maru’s stepfather gets into an accident. To pay for the damages, Bryan’s manager hires Maru to be Bryan’s personal assistant, but the two always get on each other’s nerves. They finally become friends when something happens to Bryan and Maru is there for him. This brings them closer and they eventually fall for each other.

Can their love surpass the pressures, intrigues and challenges of show business?
