MANILA, Philippines -- After the success of her series "Budoy" with Gerald Anderson, young actress Jessy Mendiola is now preparing for her new television series with Andi Eigenmann with the working title  "Ina, Anak at Kapatid."

"Actually dapat hindi pa nga pwedeng sabihin 'yon kasi confidential pero ewan ko bakit nila nabanggit. Hindi pa sure lahat pati 'yung story namin, wala pang story conference at wala pang script. Yung casting ang sure pa lang ay ako at si Andi,"  says Mendiola in an interview on Tuesday during a press conference for Star Magic's 20th anniversary.

"Sa pagkakaalam ko parang ang peg nila ay 'Gossip Girl,' para kaming dalawang sisters na nag-aaway. So, yun pa lang ang masasabi ko," the actress said.

Mendiola added that she's excited to work with Eigenmann, whom she has known even before Eigenmann did the hit show "Agua Bendita."

"Si Andi and I bago pa siya nag-Agua Bendita close na kami ni Andi. Sabay kaming pumupunta sa rehersals sa workshops. I can say na kilala ko talaga si Andi bago pa siya nagka-baby," she said.

Mendiola also revealed that she will also be reunited with Enchong Dee in the new TV project.
Aside from the series, Mendiola is also shooting Star Cinema's "The Reunion."
