PRESS STATEMENT FROM ABS-CBN:
Alex Gonzaga and Matteo Guidicelli will team up for the first time on ABS-CBN's Maalaala Mo Kaya to tell the life story of long time couple, Jocelyn and Marlon, the first contestants to bag the P1 million jackpot prize in It's Showtime's game segment in 2012.
Witness in the upcoming drama-comedy episode this Saturday (January 31) how the couple, together with their two children, survive on the meager earnings of Marlon, who scavenges for metal junk in creeks for a living. Learn how their unexpected win became an answer to their prayers.
Joining Alex and Matteo in their first MMK team-up are Kyline Alcantara, Kim Molina, Zeppi Borromeo, and Maila Gumila. It is directed by Raz De La Torre and written by Jimuel Dela Cruz.
MMK is led by business unit head Malou Santos and creative manager Mel Mendoza-del Rosario.
Considered the longest-running drama anthology in Asia, MMK airs every Saturday, 7:15PM, after Home Sweetie Home on ABS-CBN.
