EVERYBODY HAPI. This is TV5's first situational comedy featuring a dynamic cast composed of John Estrada, veteran comedians Eugene Domingo, Long Mejia, blended with the youthful and fresh humor of Alex Gonzaga, Roxanne Guinoo, Matt Evans, and Randolf Stalamaky.
Two warring heads of families living in a duplex are literally divided as two sisters versus the man they hate (and loved) the most become next-door neighbors and business rivals between the sisters' beauty parlor, and the hunky newcomer's funeral parlor!
Jim (John Estrada) is the man that Babet (Eugene Domingo) fell in love with in the past. Now, he is in love with her younger sister, Jenny (Roxanne Guinoo). Jenny also fell in love with Jim before, only to find out he got someone else pregnant. After several years, Jim is now flying solo again, but with him now is his daughter, Cathy (Alex Gonzaga)--who secretly develops a romantic relationship with Babet and Jenny's nephew, Steve (Matt Evans).
To add to the already entangled comedy is Long Mejia as Carey, Jim's loyal buddy who never runs out of silly spiels as well as both good and bad pieces of advice and ideas for his friend. Not to be outdone, Babet has her beautician gay friend, George. Randolf Stalamaky also injects humor to the story as Paul, Steve's rival who is also attracted to Cathy.
