Bea Alonzo is set to return to TV this year via a new teleserye where she gets to work with Ian Veneracion.
The actress did not divulged yet any details, except to say that it will also star Iza Calzado, Julia Barretto, and Enchong Dee.
The taping for this new teleserye will transpire “almost at the same time na ginagawa ko ang pelikula [namin ni Gerald Anderson],” she was quoted as saying in a report by ABS-CBN News.
It is not clear though if Bea and Ian will play romantic partners in the upcoming series.
Aside from the teleserye, Bea will also be working with ex-boyfriend Gerald Anderson in a movie directed by Dan Villegas.
The teleserye marks the return of Bea on primetime television after her 2014 TV series Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon, with Paulo Avelino and Albert Martinez as her love interests.
This untitled TV project also reunites her with Enchong Dee, whom she worked with in the 2010 fashionserye Magkaribal.
By accepting this project Enchong, manages to dispels rumors that he will be transferring to GMA-7. His last teleserye was the 2013 series Muling Buksan ang Puso.
Meanwhile, this serves as Ian’s follow-up series after the success of his love team with Jodi Sta. Maria in Pangako Sa ‘Yo. He is currently filming his movie with Jodi and Richard Yap.
The upcoming series also serves as a comeback for Iza Calzado, who was last seen in the 2014 drama series Hawak Kamay alongside Piolo Pascual, and had a special appearance in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano last year.
It also marks the first time that Iza will be working with Bea, after the former was pulled-out from Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon. Iza was supposed to play the role of Maricar Reyes.
Julia was last seen in the afternoon series And I Love You So wherein she played a bida-kontrabida.
