GMA Network’s Reboot of the hit 1995 Afternoon TV Series VILLA QUINTANA ran its 135th episode today (May 13) proving to the public the enormous success of Kapuso Network’s newest surprise love tandem of Janine Gutierrez and Elmo Magalona.

This is Janine’s first major project for GMA and it was more or less a very satisfactory debut for the 24 year-old daughter of actors Ramon Christopher and Lotlot De Leon.

Janine and Elmo

In a blog conference held last week at the GMA Network Center, Elmo Magalona and Janine Gutierrez expressed their gratitude to the public and all their fans for continuing to support the show which first aired on November 4, 2013.  The month of May will complete the series’ 7-month run with no reasons yet to halt.  The original series in 1995 ran for a total of 318 episodes that’s about a year and a half of success.

Aside from the great plot and the impressive performance of all the actors, the success of the series may also be attributed to the enormous fan-base of the Janine-Elmo love team and also the on-cam and off-cam chemistry of the two young actors.

“Masayang kasama si Janine,  Masaya ako ‘pag kasama ko siya.”  Elmo said while describing their successful tandem in the series.

The two are really sugar-sweet to look at.  I guess this video of them singing the show’s theme song would be proof enough of their wonderful chemistry.

Aside from Janine and Elmo, the new Villa Quintana series also showcases the awesome acting prowess of Raymart Santiago, Sunshine Dizon, Paolo Contis, Al Tantay, Maricar De Mesa, Tanya Garcia and many others.  Spicing up the story even more are new characters Joyce Ching (Crystal), Bettina Carlos (Janice), Katya Santos (Lynda) and Diva Montelaba (Yvette).  Directed by Gina Alajar.

Catch Villa Quintana weekdays on GMA Network’s Afternoon Prime block.
