    Reports said that the show was originally a film concept for the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival. In August 2012, Cinemedia Films Production Incorporated and ABS-CBN Unit Head, Deo Endrinal confirmed that it would be serialised into a television drama. It is under the production of Dreamscape Entertainment TV.
