Aga Muhlach is set to make his TV comeback as he stars in M3 (Malay Mo Ma-develop), a weekly romantic-comedy-drama series with Ai Ai delas Alas which premiers on July 3. The story will develop around a bachelor (Aga) and a single mother (Ai Ai) who is working hard to give her son a good life.
During M3's press conference held at Dolphy Theater yesterday, the King of Romance/Drama said that he enjoys the company of his leading lady, Ai Ai. "It is fun, looking forward to taping days with her, kasi yun nga kapag umeeksena ka--kita niyo naman kanina kahit sa press conference--- masaya lang. Alam mong magaling umarte kaya kapag magkaeksena kayo hindi ka manghihina kasi parati kang excited. She's a great actor. Ang galing niya. Kapag magte-take nga kami wala kaming rehearsal, ibo-block lang kami. Minsan inaabot kami ng umaga and kapag kailangan na kami matapos, sunod sunod na yung eksena namin. Five scenes nagagawa namin sunod sunod. Kasi yung reaction niya tama, pag nageksena kayo, alam mo kung saan siya pumupunta, alam mo rin yung susunod mong sasabihin, hindi ka mawawala sa eksena mo dahil naiintindihan mo yung sinasabi niya," Aga shared.
Since it has been two years since Aga's last project, he admits that he finds it difficult to adjust to the demands of time schedules since TV programs usually take long hours of taping. "Yes, nanibago ako sa time nung una, yung taping hanggang umaga but kaya lang after a while, nung nakadalawa at tatlong puyat ako naalala ko na yung mga ginagawa ko noon. It is still the same. Kung baga mas mainit lang (ang panahon) ngayon, mapawis. Sa studio walang pawis, kaya lang ang taping kasi namin on location kaya mainit talaga although ang bait naman nila kasi binibigyan nila ako ng trailer na may aircon, yung set na dilapidated nilalagyan din nila ng aircon. Okay na okay."
Aga said that M3 is his much-awaited TV project. He believes in the strength of the story and said that it will surely bring entertainment to the every family. "Expect sila (fans and audience) ng magandang storya. Gusto ko ipaalam sa lahat na yung storya na susundan nila is maayos at maganda. Hindi ko masasabing tatawa lang kayo ng tatawa at yun lang ng yun. Hindi ko rin sinasabing iiyak kayo ang sa akin lang you will look forward to your weekends now. Sana yun ang gusto kong mangyari na it is a pleasant viewing experience every Saturday, its like while you're watching and then pag-end bitin siya so aabangan mo yung susunod kasi maganda talaga yung plot ng M3."
Meanwhile, since Aga will be seen on TV regularly again, many are curious and are speculating if he will be guesting as a host in Wowowee. Aga appreciated the idea but he was quick in giving his answer that he will not be accepting the job in case it will be offered to him. "Thank you na naisip nila yun (kaya lang) parang ang hirap talaga, hindi ko kayang gawin talaga. Mas masarap na panuorin ko na lang yun although minsan ang sarap pag nagpo-promote ako sa mga noon time shows at sa live shows, ang sarap ng feeling kapag nandun ka na (sa istage) pero bago mangyari yung show andun yung nerbiyos kaya nakaka-tense talaga." More importantly, he does not want to bypass Willie Revillame as they are good friends. "Kung baga parang show niya yun, sila nagbuo nun, parang it is not right na papasok ako dun. Huwag na lang."
