Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera to co-produce GMA sitcom Jose & Maria’s Bonggang Villa 


Kapuso Primetime King and Queen Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera are set to make their awaited television comeback – starring and co-producing their upcoming GMA sitcom, Jose & Maria’s Bonggang Villa.  

It was on Monday when the two Kapuso prime stars sealed the deal at their contract signing with GMA Network and APT Entertainment executives.  

Dingdong expressed his heartfelt gratitude to his home network for giving their family a home in the showbiz industry.  

“Na-realize namin na naging tahanan namin ang GMA for the past two decades and forever grateful kami sa tiwala na binigay ninyo sa amin. It was because of GMA kung bakit ako nakilala ang aking mapapang-asawa at dahil dun nagtayo kami ng sarili naming tahanan at doon nangyari ang idea na mag-shoot kami ng small videos sa bahay na yung title ay ‘Jose at Maria’,” he said.  

The actor also thanked APT Entertainment for allowing them to take the sitcom to another level by assigning the couple as co-producers.  

Meanwhile, Marian shared that pairing up with her husband for a sitcom is a dream come true for her.  

“Isa ito sa mga pinangarap namin, lalo na sa akin kasi ang tagal ko nang hindi lumabas sa primtime, hindi ako makapaniwala na totoo na ito, na mangyari na ito kasi pangarap ko talaga magkaroon ng sitcom kasi si Dong,” she said.  

 Those who were present for the event were GMA Network Films, Inc. President and Programming Consultant to the Chairman and CEO Atty. Annette Gozon-Valdes, First Vice President for Program Management Department Jose Mari R. Abacan, and Assistant Vice President for Program Management Department Concie Agnes.  

APT Entertainment CEO and President Michael Tuviera, COO and CFO Jojo Oconer, and Vice President for Production Operations Camille Montaño were on deck as well.  

Jose & Maria’s Bonggang Villa airs May 14 on GMA Network.
