Villa Quintana is considered the most memorable teleserye produced by GMA Network. With Donna Cruz in the lead role, it was the first teleserye to be shown during primetime. Prior to this, teleseryes were usually shown in the afternoon. Looking for a new ‘audience’ other than mothers and maids, GMA launched Villa Quintana in the evening, against the formidable TV Patrol. It managed to snatch the ratings of the news program, forcing ABS-CBN to field Mara Clara to primetime. Villa Quintana’s story is derived from Romeo and Juliet, where two young lovers, Isagani Samonte and Lynnette Quintana, struggle to overcome the feud between their families to fulfill their love for each other. The teleserye was much remembered for its theme song sung by Donna Cruz entitled “Only Me and You,” which instantly became a radio hit.
