MANILA - "JaDine" is on a roll.

Only launched early this year, the tandem of James Reid and Nadine Lustre has proven to be a hit. Apart from a sequel to their latest film, "Talk Back and You're Dead," the onscreen couple will top-bill a new ABS-CBN series.

Titled "My App Boyfie," the upcoming show is based on the Wattpad series by Noreen Capili about an app that allows a user to create her ideal boyfriend.

Produced by Dreamscape Entertainment Television, the adaptation will be directed by Jojo Saguin ("Mirabella," "Muling Buksan ang Puso") and will also star Dominic Roque.

"My App Boyfie" marks the third time Lustre and Reid will have lead roles in a project based on a Wattpad novel. "Diary ng Panget," their launching movie, and "Talk Back and You're Dead" both have source materials from the online writing community.

Lustre and Reid, both talents of Viva Artists Agency, signed up with ABS-CBN in August, following the back-to-back success of their movies.

On Thursday, "Talk Back and You're Dead" co-producer Star Cinema confirmed that a followup to the movie is in the works, with Reid, Lustre and Joseph Marco reprising their respective roles.
