#SNAPSHOTS: God in the age of social media in 'Oh My G'

For her launching show, Janella Salvador was handed over not just any predictable material but something that may well be close to hearts of people.
In “Oh My G,” her character, Sophie Cepeda, will be “courted” by no less than God himself, appearing in different forms (He would even add her on Facebook!), to make her realize that the tragedy that befell her (she lost both her parents) has a reason.
The young actress-singer, daughter of Jenine Desiderio and Juan Miguel Salvador, feels “very, very honored” to be the show’s lead star.
“It’s not just any other show. It’s a show about God,” she said during the “Oh My G” press conference yesterday, Jan. 13. “It’s really a big role. This show is about St. Teresa of Avila. It’s her fifth centenary this year so we’re celebrating it.”
The show will also highlight St. Teresa of Avila’s three teachings: Humility, detachment, and love of neighbor.
“What’s striking about this story is that 500 years ago and now, pareho ‘yung problema ng mga teens,” director Roni Velasco notes. “What Sophie Cepeda is experiencing now, ganun din ‘yung buhay niya. So it’s very relevant.”
She adds, “It’s a teleserye for millennials. How do they see God? With all the information available, iba na ang tingin ng kabataan kung ano ang religion, kung ano ang God.”
Also included in “Oh My G” are Marlo Mortel and former “Pinoy Big Brother All In” housemate Manolo Pedrosa as Janella’s leading men, Janice de Belen, John Arcilla, Dominic Ochoa, Sunshine Cruz, new Kapamilya artist Edgar Allan Guzman, as well as Maricar Reyes and Eric Quizon.
“Oh My G” premieres Jan. 19 before “It’s Showtime.”
