MANILA, Philippines – Long-time onscreen partners Jolina Magdangal and Marvin Agustin join their die-hard fans in anticipation of the launch of the family drama series “Flordeliza” on ABS-CBN which will feature the mature and more daring ‘MarJo’ love team.
Marvin and Jolina were last seen together as Kapamilyas in the 1999 blockbuster hit movie, “Hey Babe,” and on TV via the top-rated romantic comedy series, ”Labs Ko Si Babe,” that aired from 1999 to 2000.
“It feels so good that even before the official announcement about ‘Flordeliza,’ a lot of people were already expressing their delight over our reunion project on ABS-CBN. Many of them even reminisced about how they loved our tandem since the beginning and until today,” said Jolina about the unexpected social media buzz caused by the ‘MarJo reunion’ updates.
“I’m really amazed with the intense reaction of the people on social social media. It’s heartwarming to know that they miss the chemistry that Jolina and I have as a tandem,” said Marvin.
Despite being well-known for their wholesome and romantic-comedy films and TV series, Jolina and Marvin assured the TV viewers that “Flordeliza” will be a project like no other.
“Aside from our first love scene, the viewers will be shocked with my role and the relationship that she has with Marvin’s character. I’m sure that this is something you’re not expecting to see us in,” said Jolina about the upcoming Kapamilya teleserye directed by master storyteller Wenn V. Deramas.
“Flordeliza” is a heartwrenching family drama series that demonstrates the important role of the family in molding the hearts and minds of children. The story revolves around the connected lives of two young girls, Flor (to be played by Ashley Sarmiento) and Liza (to be played by Rhed Bustamante).
