Dominic Ochoa is set to do a GMA-7 project for the first time after more than two decades.
He will be part of the upcoming drama series Abot Kamay Na Pangarap.
Based on a 24 Oras report today, June 22, 2022, Dominic will work with Carmina Villarroel, Richard Yap, Jillian Ward, and Andre Paras.
Dominic was introduced as "bagong Kapuso" in the report.
According to a previous announcement, Abot Kamay Na Pangarap follows the story of a poor girl whose mother has very little education.
The series will show her journey as she copes with life-changing situations that will put her family ideals, dreams, and love to test.
A formal announcement about the series and its details, including its timeslot, director, and airing date, has yet to be made.
The project marks Dominic’s first regular GMA-7 show.
Dominic had been associated with ABS-CBN and its talent arm, Star Magic, for 25 years, but his first series appearance was actually with the Kapuso network.
It was in the GMA-VIVA youth-oriented series T.G.I.S., where he did a guest role in one episode.
After his short stint in the show, he became a regular cast member of its rival program, Gimik.
During his early years in ABS-CBN, he was part of Esperanza (1998) and Labs Ko Si Babe (1999).
Dominic’s trio with Rico Yan and Marvin Agustin also became popular in early 2000s when they became hosts of Magandang Tanghali Bayan and headlined the sitcom Whattamen.
After the sitcom ended in 2004, Dominic went on to do dramatic roles in teleseryes, such as Bituing Walang Ningning (2006), May Bukas Pa (2009), Rosalka (2010), 100 Days To Heaven (2011), Princess and I (2012), and Oh My G! (2015).
Dominic also got lead roles in the teleserye My Super D (2016) and the educational show Doc Ricky Pedia (2017-2020).
His recent Kapamilya projects were Ngayon at Kailanman (2018), Love Thy Woman (2020), Huwag Kang Mangamba (2021), and a short role in the currently airing series 2 Good 2 Be True.
Dominic is also part of the sitcom Hoy, Love You!, which is presently airing on iWant TFC.
Dominic’s first project on GMA-7 serves as his reunion with Carmina Villarroel, whom he had worked with in the afternoon series May Isang Pangarap in 2013 and the movie Four Sisters Before The Wedding in 2020.
