MANILA – Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo are more than excited to reunite onscreen again more than a year since they last worked together.
The celebrity couple signed a three-year contract with ABS-CBN on Wednesday and the two shared that there are already projects lined up for them. This includes the upcoming series tentatively titled “Tanging Mahal.”
“Actually hindi pa nga namin alam kung iyan 'yung final na title kasi 'yun 'yung na-play for the presentation. Fina-finalize pa lahat. After nitong [contract signing], 'yun 'yung schedule namin actually. May presentation for the serye,” Bernardo said.
“May [alam na kaming details nung serye], nagco-conceptualize na kami kasama 'yung team about the story pero wala pa talagang final kung ano siya at kung anong structure ng kuwento,” Padilla added.
The project was first announced on Monday through ABS-CBN’s “Sama-Sama Tayo” trailer, which enumerates the network’s entertainment lineup for 2020 across platforms.
The show will be partly set in Mexico, and will be produced by Dreamscape Entertainment, the same group behind “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” and “The General’s Daughter,” among others.
“Ngayon bumalik ako sa Dreamscape with Sir Deo (Endrinal) and everyone. We are very excited kasi medyo collaboration talaga 'yung nangyayari sa story. They are very open kung ano ang gusto naming gawin so nakaka-excite 'yung serye,” Bernardo said.
When asked what’s something new that they could bring into their partnership after working apart, Padilla said: “Siguro it’s going to be something fresh… Siyempre ang tagal din naming hinintay na mangyari ito ulit. I think the fans are really excited na makita ulit kami magkasama. Kami rin personally excited na kami magtrabaho ulit na magkasama. Okay din na nag-break muna kami for a while sa trabaho para pag nagsama na kami ulit, fresh na ulit kaming dalawa.”
In addition to their upcoming series, Padilla revealed they will also be working on a movie within the year.
“Gagawa kami ng serye plus may movie pa kami ni Kathryn. Dapat niyo rin abangan. 'Yun, humawak kayo sa mga upuan niyo,” he teased.
