MANILA -- Actor Coco Martin and screen veteran Susan Roces will co-star in an upcoming episode of the fantasy-adventure anthology "Wansapanataym," marking their reunion project.
The Kapamilya stars, whose first series together was "Walang Hanggan" in 2012, will portray the lead roles in the episode titled "Simbang Gabi."
The Christmas-themed special centers on Caloy (Martin), a young, ambitious policeman who is forced to take care of his grandmother, Fenny (Roces), even as he prefers to dedicate his time to his job.
Through a magical star, Caloy is able to get anything he asks for, including a promotion in the police force. Caloy, however, starts to feel that his grandmother is getting in the way of his plans. With Fenny's devotion to the Simbang Gabi tradition, her grandson is forced to look after her.
Unknown to Caloy, his grandmother hopes to accomplish a mission in completing the "nine mornings" of Christmas.
Directed by Malu Sevilla, "Wansapanataym Presents Simbang Gabi" will air on Saturday, December 21, 6:45 p.m. after the game show "Bet On Your Baby."
