Piolo Pascual and Arci Munoz (left frame) are paired in a still-untitled ABS-CBN teleserye. Empoy Marquez and Alessandra de Rossi will also be part of the show to be directed by Antoinette Jadaone.



Piolo Pascual returns to doing teleseryes after three years.

This was announced by ABS-CBN business unit head Deo Endrinal through his Instagram account yesterday, August 15.

Endrinal handles the drama unit Dreamscape Entertainment, which produces the long-running series FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.

In this new show, Piolo gets to work for the first time with new leading lady Arci Munoz.

JC de Vera, whose afternoon series The Better Half is nearing its conclusion, will also join the new Kapamilya show.

Fresh from the success of the movie Kita Kita, Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy Marquez are also part of this show as their first official teleserye together as a love team.

According to Endrinal's post, the still-untitled series will be helmed by "hugot" movie director Antoinette Jadaone.



The new show serves as Piolo's comeback teleserye after three years.

He was last seen in the child-friendly series Hawak Kamay aired in 2014.

He was supposed to return to acting on television in 2016 via the series Written In Our Stars. However, the project was shelved after his leading lady Toni Gonzaga got pregnant.

Piolo Pascual is also one of the producers of the AlEmpoy-starrer Kita Kita, which earned a total gross of P320 million, according to Spring Films.

This also serves as a reunion for JC and Arci, who were able to work together in TV5 teleseryes such as My Driver Sweet Lover (2010) and Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum (2011).

No airing date has been announced yet for this upcoming series.
