Former Star Circle Quest love team Joross Gamboa and Roxanne Guinoo extend the good vibes, laughter, and ‘kilig’ with “Hoy Love You Two!” on iWantTFC.
In this episode of Kapamilya Chat, the tandem described their project as passing on the blessings to their fans and viewers. To still have work amid a pandemic is already a big thing so Joross and Roxanne pay it forward by giving entertainment and good vibes.
Unlike their first bubble taping last year, Roxanne was more relaxed working on the second season. There remain little worries, of course, so she makes sure to keep in touch with her kids. She’s also thankful that everyone in the bubble is responsible and obedient. Her fear was that someone in the team would test positive for COVID as it would affect the whole production and their time with the families. Thankfully, everyone was safe.
Joross mentioned the location itself as well as the province of Lobo, Batangas followed strict protocols. “Ultimo lechon ipapa-swab,” he joked. Roxanne added shooting outdoors helped lessen their worries. And lucky enough, the beach location doubled as a vacation spot for them.
“’Yung resort, sa harap, kaunting lakad mo lang snorkelling agad. So ‘yung mga walang eksena sa amin, ang swerte nila parang nagbabakasyon. Tapos ‘pag hapon, umaakyat sila Pepe [Herrera] ng bundok. Kasi ‘yung likod namin bundok, doon naman uso ‘yung mga glamping,” shared Joross.
For the second season of rom-com series “Hoy Love You,” new characters will add more fun in single parents Jules (Joross) and Marge (Roxanne)’s stepfamily. Their love life would be more colorful and chaotic. Karina Bautista and Aljon Mendoza’s respective characters, Kara and Charles, will have more kilig scenes as well.
Roxanne said the additional cast jived well with everyone. She wished there was more time for her to bond with Ritz Azul and Hasna Cabral, since she was busier than the rest of the cast. Their lock-in shoot lasted only ten days.
Joross also joined the creatives for brainstorming, although it’s not his first time. He used to ‘collab’ with the creatives in his past Star Cinema projects, influenced by Cathy Garcia Molina, and Olivia Lamasan who introduced him to scriptwriting with Ricky Lee. He already directed other iWant TFC shows as well.
JoRox is excited to share what they’ve been cooking in a paradise resort. And besides the good vibes and entertainment, “Hoy Love You” will also serve as a mini travel experience for the viewers.
“Hoy Love You” finale episode airs September 11 on A2Z. Its second season “Hoy Love You Two” premieres also on September 11 on iWantTFC.
Joining Roxanne and Joross in the series are Dominic Ochoa, Carmi Martin, Keanna Reeves and new cast members Ritz Azul, Lou Veloso, and Hasna Cabral.
