Original housewives fight back

How does a woman protect her home from the break-in of another woman?

Beginning today, wives will get even with their philandering husbands in GMA Network’s sexy dramedy series, D’ Originals. 

Kapuso Network’s latest Afternoon Prime offering is the hilarious story of three wives and their scuffles with three women who disrupt their quiet, domestic lives.  

Award-winning actress Jaclyn Jose top bills GMA Network's newest afternoon soap 

Top billed by 2016 Cannes Best Actress, Jaclyn Jose, D’ Originals also features 2016 Gawad Urian Best Actress LJ Reyes and “Bagong Pantasya ng Bayan” Kim Domingo. 

Together with Katrina Halili, Jestoni Alarcon, Mark Herras, Meg Imperial, Archie Alemania, and Lovely Abella, the stellar cast brings to life a sexy comedy drama about three wives, their husbands and the mistresses between them.

Jaclyn plays the domestic diva whose prowess in the kitchen is matched only by her rival, Katrina. Jestoni, meanwhile, plays the role of Jaclyn’s used-to-be loyal husband who strays when faced with the excitement of an affair at mid-life.


 LJ Reyes 

LJ is an entrepreneur who is forced to be the family’s breadwinner when husband Mark chooses to sit it out at home while waiting for his dream job. When his wife becomes too busy for his amorous advances, he finds more than enough comfort in the company of his sister-in-law, Lovely.

Kim plays a sexy Zumba instructor who has become a veteran of husband Archie’s numerous affairs. However, the latest woman, Meg, is proving to be more destructive than usual. To top it off, the other woman reveals a secret that shocks the life out of the legal wife.

In an interview, Jaclyn shares what makes D’ Originals different from other shows about married couples. “[It’s] experimental—dramedy sa hapon. Tungkol ito sa mga kababaihan na may asawa, at ang mga asawa nila ay may other women. Light ito at situational, ‘yung mga nangyayari talaga sa totoong buhay,” she says. 

Kim Domingo

LJ is looking forward to the series to start airing on GMA Afternoon Prime. “We’re very excited kasi hindi siya basta-basta soap, based on reality talaga siya. May studies din silang ginawa. May na-interview silang mga totoong tao. Based on experiences talaga,” she shares.

Having played the role of the other woman in her last teleserye, Kim welcomes her role in this new show, adding that while the show deals with a serious topic, they will see to it that viewers have a good laugh, too. “Hindi ito ‘yung tipo na mga original na asawa na kapag nahuli nila yung asawa nila na may kabit, ‘yung tipong katapusan na ng mundo. Ito, idadaan nila sa mas magaan, may halong comedy,” she says.
