Dingdong Dantes is scheduled to start taping for his new GMA-7 teleserye this week.
“Maraming firsts dito. Very exciting 'yong composition ng cast namin,” Dingdong told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) in a short interview at Cobra Ironman 70.3 Asia-Pacific Championship in Cebu last Saturday, August 6.
Dingdong declined to reveal the title of his new show, which he described as an action-drama-comedy teleserye.
He is, however, excited to start working with the cast of the show.
“Karangalan na makasama ang sobrang magagaling na artista, like Jaclyn Jose.
“Ito 'yong mga internationally-acclaimed actors and actresses.
“Ito rin 'yong reunion namin ni Dominic Zapata.
“Parang kung ihahambing ko siya, 'yong cast ng bagong show, parang realization siya para sa akin na sobrang talented and great people in their own field.”
He also stressed in the end, “Hanga ako sa trabaho nila at looking forward ako na makatrabaho silang lahat.”
In this TV series, Dingdong will be working with his former StarStruck co-host Megan Young.
Meanwhile, former The Millionaire's Wife actors Jaclyn Jose, Andrea Torres, and Sid Lucero are also reuniting for this series.
The new show is also a reunion of sorts for Dingdong and Dominic Zapata, who directed his 2012 series My Beloved.
