One of the most beloved pairings of the late ‘80s through the ‘90s, the multi-talented Janno Gibbs and Manilyn Reynes finds themselves back on the small screen via a new family oriented series titled My BFF.
Premiering on June 30, child stars Jillian Ward and Mona Louise Rey, join them as the “best friends forever,” in a show that highlights the value of family unity, and the joy of having each and every member of the household getting along.
While they were actually a real life couple for a time in the ‘80s, Manilyn and Janno revealed at the series launch that this is actually the first time they are working together on a drama series for TV. They are both ecstatic to star in My BFF which they consider their reunion project after so many years.
Manilyn shared that she is very pleased that her reunion project with Janno is fit for the whole family, “Ibang klase yung concept kasi iikot sa friendship ng dalawang bata na yung isa ay buhay, at yung isa ay babalik at mabubuhay para bantayan yung isa. Basta, may comedy, drama at fantasy na perfect ingredients sa mga pambatang soap opera.”
Janno also revealed that he is very thrilled to work with Manilyn and he believes that their chemistry on screen is still there.
“Ako kasi, feeling ko sa career ko, big deal si Manilyn. Nakilala ako dahil kay Manilyn. Nag-start ako, sikat na siya nun. So, noong nag-pair up kami, artista na siya bago pa ang love team namin. Hanggang ngayon nandoon pa rin ang chemistry sa batuhan namin kaya masaya talaga.”
Joining the cast are Rez Cortez, Pen Medina, Valerie Concepcion, Irma Adlawan, Leandro Baldemor, Jaypee de Guzman, Via Antonio, Hiro Peralta, Mariel Pamintuan, Miggs Cuaderno, Isabel Frial, Angel Satsumi, and Jen-Jen Chubb.
