Be careful what you wish for -- it might just come true!
Beginning June 11, GMA Network presents viewers the spell-binding and hilarious yet heart-warming story of Bong and his daughter Daisy in the new family romantic-comedy series My Daddy Dearest.
Multi-awarded singer-songwriter-actor Mr. Ogie Alcasid plays the role of Bong, son of a rich man who grew up without the guidance and care of his mother.
In the story, Bong – just like his father – is a smooth “lady-killer” who lives the good life until he meets and falls in love with Rose, a simple, loving woman who has a unique gift for growing and tending plants. Their love continues to blossom with the birth of a beautiful daughter named Daisy.
But unfortunately, fate has other plans for Bong and his family. Rose dies in a tragic accident during Daisy’s first birthday. As a result, Bong goes back to his old playboy ways, obliviously leaving his daughter to fend for herself. He is unaware of the daily torments that Daisy goes through in the hands of her Lola Mercedes, her Tita Daphne, and cousin Lily -- who all want nothing more than to possess all of Bong’s inheritance including the family company.
Despite the luxury being provided to her, Daisy feels lonely because of the absence of her father. Often, she finds refuge in her beloved mother’s garden, which, unknown to her, is occupied by a small magical pixie named Winnie. Knowing Daisy’s pain, Winnie decides to help her by granting her one wish: for Daisy’s dad to become a mom instead!
Bong’s life turns upside down as he transforms from a Macho-Papa to a Sexy-Mama! Meanwhile, Mercedes and her kin of spoiled socialites cease the opportunity and use Bong’s identity crisis as an excuse to take over the family company.
Will Daisy be able to undo her wish? Will Bong be able to regain his true form before time runs out? And will the evil Mercedes and her kin succeed in taking all the family riches?
Joining Ogie in this enchanting series are Jolina Magdangal as Rose/Camilla, Pinky Amador as Mercedes, Sherylin Reyes as Daphne, Pauleen Luna as Winnie, Annie, Minnie and Ada, JC Tiuseco as CJ, Ehra Madrigral as Ivy, Mike ‘Pekto’ Nacua as Marco, Kyle Ocampo as Lily, and Milkcah Wynne Nacion as Daisy.
Under the helm of director Don Michael Perez, GMA Network’s new family drama series My Daddy Dearest will air weekdays beginning June 11 before 24 Oras on GMA-7.
