MANILA - ABS-CBN is celebrating "Thank You Day" on January 19 with the premiere of three drama series, including the much-awaited reunion of Marvin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal via "Flordeliza."

The soap opera by Wenn Deramas centers on the friendship between two girls, Flor (Ashley Sarmiento) and Liza (Rhed Bustamante), who discover that they have the same father, Crisanto (Agustin).

When his secret unravels, the military officer faces the decision of choosing between his clueless partners -- Florida (Magdangal) and Elizabeth (Desiree del Valle) -- and his respective children with each.

"Flordeliza" will join ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Gold lineup, with a 3 p.m. time slot after "It's Showtime." The noontime variety show will be preceded by another debuting series, "Oh My G!", starring Janella Salvador.

The feel-good drama directed by Roni Velasco and Paco Sta. Maria follows Salvador's character Sophie, whose seemingly "perfect life" -- she is popular in school and on social media -- turns around when her parents die in an accident.

According to Salvador, "Oh My G!" will focus on Sophie's struggles after the tragedy, in school, love and her faith. The actress earlier said the series was conceptualized to coincide with St. Teresa of Avila's fifth birth centenary in March.

The inspirational series will take over the 11:45 a.m. time slot vacated by "Be Careful With My Heart" and the drama anthology "Give Love On Christmas," which will conclude on Friday.

Meanwhile, ABS-CBN's retelling of Ricky Lee's "Nasaan Ka Nang Kailangan Kita" get a 3:45 p.m. time slot after "Flordeliza," as part of the revamped Kapamilya Gold.

The drama series under the direction of Jeffrey Jeturian and Mervyn Brondial follows Cecilia (Vina Morales), who was abandoned by her father at a young age. Now with children of her own (Jane Oineza and Loisa Andalio), Cecilia is forced to confront a similar situation, only this time as a mother and as a wife.
