JaDine is back on the small screen.
Seven months after the conclusion of the love team’s breakout TV hit ‘On the Wings of Love’, James Reid and Nadine Lustre return for a greater dose of ‘kilig’, but at the same time tackle more serious storylines. Their newest project, ‘Till I Met You’, will showcase a more mature JaDine, while it introduces a new star.
‘Till I Met You’ will focus on the lives of three people, each with a story to tell. Iris (Nadine) and Basti (James) are a couple and are set to marry, but things soon turn when Iris’ best friend Ali, played by JC Santos, is revealed to have a secret relationship with Basti.
Like more recent ABS-CBN dramas featuring their love teams, ‘Till I Met You’ will also highlight a particular tourist attraction. The early portion of the series was shot in Greece, a country that features a mild Mediterranean climate and a vast tradition of civilization and commerce.
Joining JaDine and JC on ‘Till I Met You’ are Carmina Villaroel, Zoren Legaspi, Pokwang, Angel Aquino, Kim Molina, Noel Trinidad and Robert Seña, with Richard Yap and Jay Manalo playing special roles. The series will be directed by Antonette Jadaone and Andoy Ranay, both of whom have been the directors of JaDine’s projects in the past.
The hype for ‘Till I Met You’ has been tremendous leading up to its premiere. News regarding the upcoming series became a constant trending topic on social media, and as such, fans of JaDine cannot stop talking about ‘Till I Met You”s hit potential.
This should cause a concern for GMA, whose continuous failures to concoct their own popular love teams have been well documented. The expected popularity of ‘Till I Met You’ could keep GMA out of it, especially now that they are airing a Koreanovela (in this case ‘Descendants of the Sun’) as a last resort.
It will be interesting to see how the new and improved JaDine will fare the second time around. But as far as viewers are concerned, there will be no surprises, as they are poised to once again generate high ratings for ABS-CBN based on past reputation.
‘Till I Met You’ premieres this Monday, and airs weeknights after ‘Ang Probinsyano’ on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.

JaDine fans are dubbed last year as OTWOListas. So this year, what’ll it be? TIMYsters? We’ll all have to wait for the premiere week in Twitterlandia for the official demonym for this teleserye.
And wait for GMA’s next desperate move (Koreanovela or another teleserye featuring older actors/acrtesses) once the new JaDine drama becomes a hit.
I’d say, Koreanovela is better. GMA would rather not pit their love teams against JaDine because they know they don’t have a chance.
Unless Tony Tuviera’s TAPE may intervene… 😉
We’ll see. Their only bankable love team now is Alden and Maine, but Alden recently accepted a role on Encantadia so that may take a while.
Primetime Bida’s drama block is now dominated by Dreamscape-produced teleseryes.
Plus Doble Kara, they now have four. I wonder what is the current focus of Star Creatives at this point.
Star Creatives is prepping up the Bea Alonzo-starrer “The Second Wife.” Third slot for sure.
There are still other projects that are in pre-production mode, so let’s wait and see what happens next.
Actually the best shows for me is Pangako sa yo than Dolce Amore, But On the wing on love is not, parang pang female audience lang ang dating, di katulad sa 2 , both show are suitable for males and female audiences. Pero aabangan ko rin ang Till I Met You.
Well all three shared a similar premise despite your claims.
There are more historical buildings in Greece, bakit di sila doon nag shooting? And for Athens ,Greece , there are few skyscrapers na magsasabing maganda mag shooting doon ,pero malinis doon like Rome and London.
They seem to focus more on the beaches of Greece, since the series’ focus is on LGBT.
Plot smells like “My Husband’s Lover” all over again…
Probably, but TIMY could be more popular than MHL ever was.
Figures from Kantar from its premiere date and last night are somewhat decent.
The premiere episode scored a 28.2 rating last Monday and the second episode scored a 29.1 rating, still beating Descendants of the Sun by double digits (17.2 and 19.5 on the same period). Looks like the show’s premiere is somewhat underwhelming despite Ang Probinsyano scoring above 40 on those nights.
That’s typical for a new drama. Let’s wait and see if it will improve.
Jadine-billed TIMY will now occupied the timeslot of BFY starting next week. FYI, here is the new schedule of Primetime Bida by Monday:
5:30pm – Minute to Win It
6:30pm – TV Patrol
7:45pm – Ang Probinsyano
8:30pm – Magpahanggang Wakas
9:15pm – Till I Met You
10pm – PBB Lucky 7
11pm – Tonight With Boy Abunda
MTRCB have already summoned executives of TIMY on the steamy love scene by James and Nadine inside a car last month. Diba bawal naman talaga ipalabas ang pre-marital sex thingy na yan?
If you’re below 18 yes. But let’s face it, MTRCB summoning a free TV network for a sexually-charged scene is nothing new. Paulit-ulit na ito (remember The Rich Man’s Daughter?), at it seems like walang natututunan ang mga network tungkol sa mga yan.
For JaDine, it’s the second time that a series of theirs was summoned by the MTRCB for a questionable scene. As popular as they are, they seem prone and vulnerable to the MTRCB’s hand. They need to learn quickly from this.
That is why the MTRCB is a cancer to TV industry. We can’t even release the creative freedom of our local producers to give better shows to the public. I will not be surprise If these sexually themed show would be on streaming sites like Iwant TV or iFlix because at least they can show their creative freedom to audiences with regulations.
And on the internet, nudity could be allowed, but only if the artists and producers are willing to do that. Anyway, with all that summoning, MTRCB’s current G, PG and SPG rating format is a flawed system. It’s about time for an age-specific system which the US currently implements.
