If KathNiel’s upcoming TV series sounds too good to be true, it’s because it literally is!
Showbiz power couple Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla will soon grace our television screens as they are set to return with new teleserye “2 Good 2 Be True” directed by Direk Mae Cruz-Alviar. The announcement came roughly four years after the pair’s last TV team-up in the fantasy drama “La Luna Sangre.”
In a story conference earlier today, September 27, Kathryn and Daniel couldn’t hide their excitement as they announced their upcoming project.
“Mga Kapamilya, eto na po ang isa sa sorpresa na hinanda namin sa inyo at ng ABS-CBN. Finally, ia-announce na po namin na tuloy na tuloy na po ang teleserye namin," Kathryn shared with excitement.
“After four years nang wala kami sa TV, eto nagbabalik na kami at magte-taping na kami very soon,” Daniel confirmed, further detailing that the project has been in the works for a while now.
As the couple recently marked their 10th year as a love team, they continue to seek out new storylines and themes to tackle in their future projects.
Daniel said of the new series: “Para sa aming dalawa, challenging din na gumawa ng panibagong kwento sa dami na naming ginawa. One year in the making, ano pa ba ang pwede naming gawin? Something new for the people, para sa mga manonood, kung ano pa ba yung bago naming maio-offer.”
Kathryn and Daniel also confirmed that they collaborated with the production team in finalizing the series.
“This will be directed by Direk Mae Cruz-Alviar, one of our favorite directors, and we're very happy she said yes,” Kathryn said. “At nagpapasalamat kami sa management, kay Tita Cory (Vidanes) and all, kasi tinanong kami kung anong gusto naming project at sinabi namin ni Deej na gusto naming gumawa ng isang rom-com.”
Coming out of their TV hiatus, Kathryn pointed out how it feels to be taping a show during the pandemic: “Extra challenging gumawa ng isang project ngayon sa sitwasyon natin kasi ang hirap gumalaw this pandemic. So sana maging maayos ang lahat. But overall, excited kami ni DJ. Kailangan lang namin bumwelo. Pero pag nandun na with the production and everyone, I think this is gonna be a fun journey.”
Even with the new set-up, the timing of their new project couldn’t be more perfect for Daniel.
“Every project is special. I think it’s just about time. Hindi hilaw, hindi hinog. Right timing lang tayo,” Daniel said.
The “The House Arrest of Us” stars went on to describe this project as their gift to fans and long-time viewers who have been watching the clock patiently for this comeback.
“Hayaan niyo kami na bigyan namin kayo ng bagong rason to smile, para pakiligin, pasayahin, paiyakin lahat. At sana dito sa bagong project namin na '2 Good 2 Be True' sana po suportahan niyo. Alam namin iba ngayon yung set-up natin kung paano mapapanood. But again, maraming salamat dahil nandyan pa rin kayong lahat. Ramdam na ramdam namin ‘yung suporta niyo sa ABS-CBN,” Kathryn addressed viewers.
In celebration of the love team’s 10th anniversary, their documentary entitled “KathNiel: Isang Dekada” premiered last September 25 on Kathryn’s Youtube channel.
