MANILA -- After more than a year since she was last seen in the primetime hit "A Beautiful Affair," actress Bea Alonzo will be back on TV in the upcoming show "Sana Bukas Pa Ang Kahapon."

"Back to work na tapos na ang bakasyon. Very happy to do this project. Sana ma-absorb niyo excitement namin,"Alonzo said during a press conference on Thursday.

Alonzo considers the new series her most challenging project so far.

"First time to portray na tatlong characters kaya nakakapagod talaga," she explained.

Joining Alonzo in the show are veterans Susan Roces, Anita Linda, Dina Bonnevie, Tonton Gutierrez and Albert Martinez, as well as contemporary stars Paulo Avelino and Iza Calzado.

"Kakaiba ito sa lahat nang nagawa ko," Roces said. "New experience ito na istorya ng labanan ng dalawang angkan sa negosyo."

For his part, Martinez said he is looking forward to do the project since it will be his first time to work with both Alonzo and Calzado.

Alonzo's last series "A Beautiful Affair" with long-time screen partner John Lloyd Cruz ended its run in January 2013.

Instead of TV, the actress concentrated in making movies last year, which included the box office hits "She's the One" and "Four Sisters and a Wedding."
