Janine Gutierrez is now officially a Kapamilya!
The former GMA-7 artist signed a contract with ABS-CBN earlier today, January 15, 2021.
Present during her contract signing were Dreamscape Entertainment head Roldeo Endrinal, ABS-CBN bosses Carlo Katigbak, Cory Vidanes, Mark Lopez, Ric Tan, and Janine's manager, Leo Dominguez.
Janine will be doing a teleserye under Dreamscape Entertainment, a content-providing unit of ABS-CBN that produces FPJ's Ang Probinsyano, Walang Hanggang Paalam, among other teleseryes.
She will also be a part of ASAP Natin 'To and will top-bill a movie produced by Star Cinema, a subsidiary under ABS-CBN Films.
Janine is the first Kapuso actress to transfer and sign a contract with ABS-CBN after Congress shut down its free broadcast.
Prior to being a Kapamilya, Janine was an artist of GMA-7 for ten years.
She started her showbiz career in 2010 as part of the noontime show Party Pilipinas, and subsequently top-billed several teleseryes, like Villa Quintana, More Than Words, Once Again, Legally Blind, and Victor Magtanggol.
Janine's last teleserye was the 2019 afternoon series Dragon Lady.
It was on December 28, 2020 when PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) published a scoop about Janine moving to ABS-CBN in 2021.
Janine’s contract with GMA Artist Center ended on November 1, 2020.
A contract renewal no longer surfaced between Janine and her former co-manager.
According to PEP.ph’s Cabinet Files, she will be doing a drama series with ABS-CBN.
On January 8, 2020, Janine's manager Leo Dominguez posted a photo of a "congratulatory dinner" with Janine, his other talent Paulo Avelino, and Deo Endrinal.
The photo sparked more speculations about Janine's transfer.
