Former screen partners Joross Gamboa and Roxanne Guinoo-Yap, otherwise known as ‘JoRox,’ are both excited for viewers to watch their romantic comedy series, where they play single parents who unexpectedly find love.
Entitled Hoy, Love You!, their reunion project is a six-episode iWantTFC original series streaming for free on Jan. 18.
“This project is very different from our previous ones during our SCQ (Star Circle Quest) days. It is more appropriate for our age while still maintaining a level of ‘kilig’ and a sense of maturity. We will not only entertain viewers but will also try to inspire families, kids, and single parents who want to find love again,” Roxanne shared in the digital talk show The Best Talk.
Joross also added, “What’s interesting about this series is that the topic is mature in its nature, but the series is full of humor at the same time. The audience will also have a better understanding of the story since the approach is light-hearted… It will impart lessons and will serve as an eye-opener to viewers.”
In the series set in Lobo, Batangas, Joross and Roxanne portray Jules and Marge, single parents who are in pursuit of their personal dreams in life for themselves and their respective children.
After losing his wife in an accident, the fun-loving probinsyano Jules focuses on his job as a contractor and encourages his daughter (Brenna Garcia), to finish her architecture course so that they can work together and live a comfortable life. Meanwhile, Marge is a career-centric interior designer from Manila whose dream is to put up her own design firm. She is also a hands-on mom to her 16-year-old son Charles (Aljon Mendoza).
Due to an accidental encounter, Jules and Marge meet but only develop a close relationship when they are both assigned to work on a construction project together in the province.
Just when the two are falling in love with each other and are ready to bring their families together, their relationship hits a roadblock when Marge’s wealthy ex-boyfriend named Richard (Dominic Ochoa), who is also the father of Charles, returns to her life to win her back.
Directed by Theodore Boborol, “Hoy, Love You!” also features the love team of Aljon and Karina Bautista, and stars TJ Valderrama, Pepe Herrera, Yamyam Gucong, Keanna Reeves, and Carmi Martin. The show’s official theme song was also performed by the cast and was recently released courtesy of Star Music.
