ABS-CBN and Dreamscape Television Entertainment proudly presents ‘Till I Met You, the newest TV series that marked the return of James Reid-Nadine Lustre (JaDine) tandem's TV appearance since On the Wings of Love.
The TV series set to show that real love wins, “Till I Met You” starring the love team of real-life couple James Reid and Nadine Lustre, with primetime’s new leading man JC Santos, which starts on Monday (August 29).
Directed by Antoinette Jadaone, "Till I Met You" was shot at Athens, Santorini and Mykonos, Greece! Aside from the kilig moments, viewers are set to see the breathtaking sceneries of Greece as some of the scenes were shot in Santorini and other parts of the country.
Iris, (Nadine Lustre), Ali (JC Santos) and Basti (James Reid) find themselves in an unusual love triangle. As conflicts arise they are led into the difficult situation whether to fight for their love or save their friendship.
Iris (Nadine) an achiever yet simple girl who wishes to give her family a better life. Having grown up without a father, she lives happily with her siblings and her mother Cassandra (Carmina Villarroel).
She then develops a mutual understanding with her childhood best friend Ali (JC Santos), a son of a military general and a cook.
With the same aspirations in life, Iris and Ali grow closer to each other and will develop a budding romance.
Together they will chase for their dreams in Greece, where they will meet Basti (James Reid), a rebellious son who works as a tour guide in the country. Living only by himself, he will find the acceptance he has been looking for from Iris and Ali.
However, their friendship will be put to test as Basti falls for Iris, deeply hurting Ali. This will lead them to the point of choosing between what matters more: love or friendship.
Will Iris and Ali still fulfill the dreams they built together? Will Basti fight for his love for Iris? Are they ready to risk everything to have the one they love?

During the grand press conference, James went as far as to say that the story in "Till I Met You" is better than "OTWOL (On the Wings of Love)," a kilig-filled romantic series.
“Everyday I am more in love with her (Nadine),” said James.
Nadine said that this new story is on friendship and love. "Katulad ng sa amin ni James, start with friendship. Then learn to love the guy beyond friendship," shared Nadine.
JC Santos, the third wheel in JaDine's new series, plays the role of Alejandro, the common friend of the characters of James Reid and Nadine Lustre.
He is a theater actor at the University of the Philippines-Diliman. He became a singer and dancer at Hong Kong Disneyland and at Universal Studios Singapore before going to New York to study musical theater. He has played supporting roles in TV in his past projects.
JC said that he did not have any second thoughts when he finally offered a role. He was overwhelmed when he learned that he would be one of the lead stars of "Till I Met You."
"Actually nung time na 'yun, iniisip ko okay na ako kung aawayin ko lang si James dito. Gulat na gulat po ako at hindi ako makapaniwala na isa ako sa mga bida. Nagpapasalamat po ako sa pagtitiwala talaga. Punong puno ang puso ko ngayon," he said.
