Piolo Pascual returns to the small screen in the new “sweetcom” My Papa Pi which pairs him onscreen with beauty queen and actress Pia Wurtzbach for the very first time. Also joining him on the cast is comedian Pepe Herrera who will be playing his twin brother Popoy.

“It’s a nice breather. I even surprise myself dito sa show. Ang sarap having a solid cast and a director na fun. ‘Pag nakakapagpatawa ka o nakakapagbigay ng ligaya sa paligid mo it’s a nice feeling pabalik sa ‘yo,” said Piolo shared during the My Papa Pi mediacon last February 12.

The new show revolves around the lives of Pipoy (Piolo), a single dad who wants a better future for his daughter; his twin brother Popoy (Pepe), a popular tumbong maker and owner of “One More Tumbong;” and Tere (Pia), a woman with a golden heart who happens to be Popoy’s one great love but has feelings for Pipoy. Director Cathy Garcia-Molina said getting the chance to work with Piolo again was one of the reasons she had to accept the project.

“I really want to work with Piolo kasi ang huli namin Lobo pa, dekada na ‘yun. So na-miss ko na siya…Pangalawa, it is something new to me. Sitcom na naging sweetcom. Tapos na-cutean ako sa idea na kambal si Pepe at Piolo. Natuwa ako doon tapos meron pang Queen P dito. Itong set na ’to extra saya. Dala na rin siguro na sweetcom siya so alam naming lahat na kami ay dapat magagaan lang, patawa lang lahat,” she said.

Pia, whose last acting project was in Star Cinema’s My Perfect You in 2018 with Gerald Anderson, said she is more than ready to act in front of the cameras again this year.

“Ang perfect ng project para sa akin kasi malalabas ko ‘yung kulit ko…So parang it’s a great way to come back. Sobrang grateful ko po na ako yung napili,” she said.

Co-star Pepe Herrera also looks forward to his biggest break in television. “Si Direk Cathy gusto ko makatrabaho ulit kasi siya ‘yung first ko sa TV sa Forevermore tapos si Pia at si Piolo nakikita ko lang dati sa TV or sa ASAP, hi hello lang, so naku-curious ako sa kanila. I feel very blessed and grateful,” he added.
