Jennylyn Paired For The First Time With Tom Rodriguez In The Big-Budgeted Horror-Suspense-Drama, 'The Cure'

JENNYLYN MERCADO is back to work after her Holy Week vacation abroad with her inamorato, Dennis Trillo. She’s currently taping “The Cure”, whose trailer is already being shown and it certainly looks like a big and expensive production. The story revolves about a city where the inhabitants are inflicted with a deadly new virus that turns them into zombies.

“Excited kami ng mga kasama ko rito, led by Tom Rodriguez, kasi first time kaming makagawa ng ganitong klase ng serye na ibang-ibang talaga from anything we’ve done before,” says Jen. “It really offers something new to the viewers kasi first time din naming magiging magkapareha ni Tom. Magkahalong horror, drama at suspense ang show.”

Directed by Mark Reyes, Jen and Tom play a married couple, Charity and Gregory Salvador. When Tom’s mother, played by Irma Adlawan, is diagnosed with terminal illness, Tom is desperate for his mom to regain her health and agrees for her to be subjected to an experimental treatment by Dr. Evangeline Lazaro, played by Jaclyn Jose. But instead of being beneficial to its recipients, the drug causes an infection that threatens to spread all over the city, prompting Tom and Jen along with Jaclyn and her son, Ken Chan, to seek for the right cure to the disease.

The powerhouse cast also includes Andrea Torres, Mark Herras, LJ Reyes and Arra San Agustin in important roles, along with Jay Manalo, DIva Montelaba, Jojo Alejar, Ronnie Henares, Rita Daniel, Joanna Marie Tan and child star Leanne Bautista as the daughter of Jen and Tom.

Meantime, the fans of Jen and her beau, Dennis Trillo, as a couple are pleased when they saw pictures of Jen with Calix, the love son of Dennis with ex-beauty queen Carlene Aguilar. They are happy that Jen is bonding well with Calix while Dennis is also getting along fine with her own love son, Alex Jazz. In one school activity of Alex Jazz, both Jen and Dennis were there to attend the affair. They’re really one happy family. Meantime, both Jen and Dennis are currently abroad to participate in the “Sikat Ka Kapuso” shows of GMA Pinoy TV in New Jersey, USA and in Toronto, Canada.
