Enchong Dee is set to return to primetime television this year via ABS-CBN's new show, The Second Wife.
In the series, he is set to work again with real-life best friend Bea Alonzo.
Enchong revealed to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) that was enticed to accept this teleserye since he would get the chance to work with Bea.
He also admitted that he is excited for this project since they will play half-siblings who are not on good terms with each other.
Enchong disclosed, "Noong sinabi sa akin na hindi okay yung relationship with Bea, parang na-excite ako.
"Kasi siyempre, minsan yung kaibigan mo, gusto mong paglaruan. Pero ito, seryoso and halos lahat ng project ko with Bea, this is actually our fourth together and it's always been very nice yung outcome.
"So parang I always do good with her so I hope this will be the fourth successful project together with Bei [Bea's nickname]."
Bea and Enchong first worked together in the 2010 drama series Magkaribal, where Enchong's character Caloy has feelings for his best friend Gelai (played by Bea).
They also worked in two movies as siblings: Sa 'Yo Lamang in 2010, and Four Sisters and a Wedding in 2013.
PEP.ph had the chance to interview Enchong after his June 29 PEPTalk shoot with Kiray Celis for their upcoming movie I Love You To Death.
PAIRED WITH JULIA? PEP also asked Enchong if this time, he will have Julia Barretto as his partner in the series.
They were seen in photos together after the story conference of the teleserye last June 22.
However, Enchong revealed, "I don't think so also, actually yun yung misinterpretation.
"Pero hindi pa lahat yun ang cast because we have a huge cast, and we have a parang compound wherein patches of families are in one compound."
Aside from Bea and Julia, the series is also topbilled by Iza Calzado and Ian Veneracion.
Without giving too much info about The Second Wife's plot, he explained what this teleserye wants to impart to viewers:
"Kasi we wanted as much as possible to show that even the Filipino families now are very open.
"Kasi you know how Catholic Filipinos are and religious and as much as possible, having the stigma of a broken family but the reality is there that Filipino families are diversified nowadays."
Also included in the cast are Tirso Cruz III, Irma Adlawan, JK Labajo, and Vin Abrenica who is making his Kapamilya debut through this TV series.
The primetime series will be helmed by Jerry Lopez Sineneng, whom Enchong describes as a "pro-artist" director.
The Second Wife is produced by Star Creatives and is expected to air this 2016.
