Jolina Magdangal–Escueta is now officially back with the Kapamilya network!

“I’m so excited and nervous, but in a good way, for everything that will happen next. After 12 years, I’m finally back home,” said Jolina during the contract signing.

Her first project with ABS CBN is the TV series “Flordeliza,” where she will be reunited with her original onscreen love team partner Marvin Agustin, along with Desiree de Valle. During the contract signing, Jolina could not hide her elation over her new project.

“Whenever I’m on my way to tapings I feel giddy because of joy. It’s easy for me to adjust since I will be working with Marvin again and Direk Wenn Deramas, who happened to be my director in my last project with Star Cinema,” said Jolina.

Singer-actress Jolina Magdangal is overwhelmed with all the positive feedback and well wishes she has been receiving since her return to ABS-CBN.  Jolina also shared that she is open to reviving her 90s hit songs under Star Records.

“What really made me come back are the people on- and off-cam whom I missed working with. The first on my list is Direk Wenn Deramas. He was my director in ‘Kung Ikaw Ay Isang Panaginip,’ my last movie under Star Cinema. I was so happy and at ease when I learned that he will be the one to direct ‘Flordeliza.’ I know that I will not have a hard time,” explained Jolina, who gained stardom in the 1990s through ABS-CBN shows like “Ang TV,” ”Gimik,” ”Esperanza,” and ”Labs Ko Si Babe.”

But aside from Direk Wenn, Jolina admitted that it is the beautiful story of “Flordeliza” and her tandem with Marvin that made her say yes to the project.

“The viewers will see a different Marvin-Jolina tandem in ‘Flordeliza.’ Unlike before when people were used to seeing us in romantic comedy shows, now, in ‘Flordeliza,’ they will surely be surprised. It’s something worth watching out for,” said Jolina.
