Camille Prats and Katrina Halili are joining forces in a teleserye after the successful run of each of their afternoon shows in GMA-7.

Both are headlining the upcoming GMA Afternoon Prime series “Mommy Dearest,” together with Sparkle artist Shayne Sava, who was recently touted by the network as its new “Drama Princess.”

A story conference for the show was held on Saturday, January 13, 2023.

Also part of the cast are Amy Austria, Dion Ignacio, Prince Carlos, Mel Martinez, Muriel Lomadilla, Viveika Ravanes, and Prince Carlos.

The new project will be directed by Gina Alajar.

“Mommy Dearest” serves as Katrina’s comeback to doing afternoon shows after starring in successful drama shows “Prima Donnas” and “Unica Hija.”

More popular as a kontrabida, Katrina proved that she can also be a loving mother and an api-apihan with the shows.

Currently, Katrina plays a dark character in the action primetime series “Black Rider” with Ruru Madrid.

In an interview with “24 Oras,” Katrina says that she will return to api-apihan and dramamode with her new show compared to Katrina where she usually shoots more action scenes.

The show also marks the reunion of Shayne and Camille, who played mother and daughter in the afternoon drama series “AraBella” in 2023.

Camille said in the interview that her character will tackle an important mental health issue in the series.

Shayne and Katrina also have some sort of connection when Katrina served as Shayne’s alumna mentor in the 2019 edition of “StarStruck,” where Shayne emerged as winner.

Speaking of “StarStruck,” the show also reunites Katrina and Dion, who were originally paired as a love team during their season in the reality show.

However, they were not paired in projects after the search as the Kapuso network groomed them in different paths: with Dion playing characters and Katrina as a kontrabida.

Meanwhile, the last time Camille and Katrina worked together was in the 2011 primetime series “Munting Heredera.”

According to GMA-7, “Mommy Dearest” will ask viewers the difficult question: is a parent worth forgiving is she puts her child in danger.

More details about the show are still under wraps but it is expected to air this 2024 on GMA Afternoon Prime.
