    Jolina, Marvin to team up anew on GMA-7’s ‘Adik Sa ‘Yo’

    GMA-7 Network is reportedly thinking of breathing new life into the long-dead love team of stars Jolina Magdangal and Marvin Agustin through a primetime romantic comedy series tentatively titled “Adik Sa ‘Yo.”

    Magdangal and Agustin will play recovering drug junkies who meet in a bar and start a steamy affair while trying to kick off their addiction to Ecstasy, crystal meth, and other illegal drugs, sources said.

    The story is said to be roughly based on the Rivermaya song “Hinahanap Hanap Kita,” the lyrics of which include the phrase “adik sa ‘yo,” Good Times Manila learned.

    The series will replace the Marian Rivera-Dingdong Dantes starrer “Ang Babaeng Hinugot sa Aking Tadyang,” whose dismal ratings have reportedly led executives of the Kapuso Network to pull the plug on the show.

    Magdangal and Agustin said they hoped the plan would push through, and were excited about the idea of rekindling their nonexistent past romance.

    Magdangal recently split up with her fiance, Bebong Munoz, while Agustin still thinks he is straight.

    The three remaining fans of the Jolina-Marvin love team are reportedly “very excited” about seeing their idols on primetime TV since the short-lived “I Love NY.”

    “The idea for the story actually came from members of Narcotics Anonymous-Philippines who were invited by the producers to the story conference,” a network insider told GTM.

    “In other words, mga adik talaga ang may idea nyan,” one source said.

    guys hello sa lahat. invite ko lang sana kayo sa POPSICLES.PH. It's a paid forum na katulad sa forums. It's purpose is to bring P-POP to the international scene. Kasi we aren't given good treatment in any asian forum you go like and/or napansin nyo yung Philippine Entertainment na belong sa "Other Entertainment" section nila. It's time for Philippine Entertainment to be known worldwide.

    We sub (put english subtitles on the videos) P-POP series para sa mga international members namin. We are currently working on Only you and Maruja pero we want to sub gma shows din pero wala pang nag apply from kapuso so di namin ma continue.

    Kaunti lang yung mga kapuso dun kaya sana mag register kayo para di lang puro abs stars ang makilala worldwide.

    I hope you could help us in bringing our entertainment to the international scene.

    NOTE: bawal pala ang network wars dun. Members dun love both abs and gma. Bawal ang away. we respect each others likes and dislike so if you want a friendly site na walang awayan then Popsicles is for you.
