After a year of working on separate projects, the much anticipated reunion series of Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo finally made its premiere online in the pilot episode of their first digital project The House Arrest of Us last October 24 followed by a lively and interactive exclusive Fan conference on KTX.ph. A new episode will be uploaded every Saturday and is scheduled to run from October 24 to January 16, 2021.

 

 

Daniel and Kathryn head back into light drama territory after doing teleseryes like La Luna Sangre and Pangako Sa ‘Yo. In the first episode of The House Arrest of Us, Kathryn and DJ play newly engaged couple Q and Korics. When Korics and his family visit Q to do the official “pamamanhikan,” both clans end up getting stuck together in one home when a strict lockdown is suddenly imposed in their area. 

 

 

Kathniel fans will surely enjoy seeing the much missed “kilig” between the popular stars which makes their onscreen chemistry look like art imitating life after the two revealed they do have plans to settle down and get married within the next few years. In the show, Kath and DJ switch easily from drama to comedy, providing light watching entertainment to help ease the pressures of doing real-life home quarantine during the pandemic.

 

 

Ruffa Gutierrez and Herbert Bautista play Kathryn’s loving yet overprotective parents, a nouveau riche couple who got their wealth from growing the many branches of their beauty business called Sylvester Salon. Arlene Muhlach and Dennis Padilla play DJ’s mother and stepfather. The late arrival of DJ’s biological father from Japan, played by a scene-stealing Gardo Versoza, further adds to the cast’s colorful chemistry. Other members of the cast include  Hyubs Azarcon, Anthony Jennings, Riva Quenery, and Alora Sasam.

 

 

To watch the digital series, get your season pass of The House Arrest of Us on KTX.ph to get access to the premiere of each of the show’s 13 episodes every Saturday at 2 p.m. The House Arrest of Us will also be available on iWantTFC.
