Mavy and Kyline navigate the online dating world in “Zero Kilometers Away”

In a world of modern dating, can two friends find their way to meet their respective matches? What if the one they’re looking for is just right beside them all along?

Taking their undeniable onscreen chemistry to online platforms, Sparkle Sweethearts Mavy Legaspi and Kyline Alcantara are set to make hearts flutter again as they headline Zero Kilometers Away – an original digital series produced by GMA Public Affairs.

Set to launch this March 10 on various GMA Network online platforms and GMA Public Affairs’ YouTube channel and Facebook pages, Zero Kilometers Away is a six-part narrative series about a young man and a young woman trying to navigate the harsh, creepy, and more often than not, hilarious realities of the online dating world.

Following the success of their team-up in the primetime series ‘I Left My Heart in Sorsogon,’ the MavLine couple is back to spread love and laughter in Zero Kilometers Away as Ardi and Gwen. As childhood best friends, the two have been each other’s confidante. Now that they are about to finish school, Gwen is having a major FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) as she longs to be in a romantic relationship. Ever reliable, Ardi encourages her to try online dating apps.

What follows is a series of online dating adventures and misadventures where they meet people from all walks – and quirks – of life. Yet as Ardi and Gwen navigate their different “matches” side by side, will they realize that “the one” might already be there – just zero kilometers away?


As two of the country’s most followed celebrities on social media, Mavy and Kyline believe that a lot of Gen Zs can relate to Ardi and Gwen’s story.

“Makakarelate dito yung mga naghahanap ng true love. In this day and age, everything’s super quick and at the tip of our fingers – like food deliveries, riding apps, and even sa love, instant na via mobile dating apps. It’s a thrilling roller coaster ride getting to know different people and knowing the possibility of finding that one true love. But sometimes in reality that one person you want to share your heart with might just be zero kilometers away from you,” says Mavy.

Kyline adds that viewers will also be on a rollercoaster ride. “[There will be] Paasa moments, ‘Magiging sila na ba?’ Or paasa in a way na, ‘Sana naman maging sila na.’ O ‘Lalayo ba ‘to?’, ‘Mami-meet ba siya?’, ‘Magiging sila ba ng mga meet niya?'” she shares.

Making Ardi and Gwen’s life extra colorful are the special roles played by Kara David, Kuya Kim Atienza, Drew Arellano, Iya Arellano, Sparkle artists Caitlyn Stave, Raheel Bhyria, and Kaloy Tingcungco, TikTok sensation Rosmar Tan, Jerome Pamulaklakin, and Gigi Locsin. More Kapuso personalities are expected to appear in each episode.

The Kapuso digital series is written by Mario Banzon and directed by Maikel Cardoz.

Don’t miss ‘Zero Kilometers Away’ beginning March 10, 6 pm on the GMA Portal, GMA Public Affairs’ YouTube channel and GMA-owned Facebook pages.
