KEN CHAN is happy to topbill the first offering of “Regal Studio Presents”, a collaboration between Regal Entertainment and GMA Network. 

This is “That Thin Line Between”, where he is paired for the first time with “First Yaya” star Sanya Lopez. 

“I’m happy to work with Sanya,” he says. 

“Pareho kaming galing sa ‘Walang Tulugan’ of the late German Moreno and I’m sure that our dear Kuya Germs will be happy to see us now having more stable careers and working together. 

"I’m sure natutuwa siya para sa aming mga alaga niya noong araw.” 

“Regal Studio Presents” is an anthology series that aims to present timely TV specials with unforgettable stories each weekend. 

In “That Thin Line Between”, Ken will play an accountant while Sanya is an online seller. 

They are neighbors but they don’t see each other eye to eye and are often at odds with each other due to their conflicting ways and beliefs in life. 

Their two-part primetime special will be shown on Saturday, September 11 and 18 at 8:30 PM. 

After this, succeeding “Regal Studio Presents” stories will be shown on Sundays at 4:30 PM starting September 26.  

Future stories will star the reel-and-real love team of Gabbi Garcia and Khalil Ramos, and the teen love team of Sofia Pablo and Allen Ansay that’s known as Team Jolly. 

Meantime, Ken’s GMA Afternoon prime series, “Ang Dalawang Ikaw” is ending soon and Ken says viewers should watch out for more startling twists in the story. 

“Basta huwag kayong bibitiw sa last few episodes kasi maraming pasabog na eksena,” Ken adds. 

“Maraming bagong problemang haharapin kami ni Rita Daniela as Mia and me as my two characters, Tyler and Nelson. The finale week will surely shock you.”

Why would it shock us? 

“Kasi, si Anna Vicente as Beatrice will do everything in her power para siya ang piliin ko as Tyler at iwanan ko na nang tuluyan si Mia. 

"Pero siempre, hindi rin magpapatalo si Rita as Mia at ipaglalaban din niya ang pagmamahal niya sa akin as Nelson. 

"Isang malaking trahedya ang mangyayari and you have to find out kung may happy ending pang naghihintay para kina Mia at Nelson.” 

“Ang Dalawang Ikaw” is directed by Jorron Lee Monroy and seen right after the sizzling Glaiza de Castro soap, “Nagbabagang Luha”. 

Meantime, despite the pandemic Ken’s businesses are doing well. 

He has invested his earnings in no less than six gasoline stations in various locations in Pampanga, Bulacan, Cavite and even Cebu and they’re now doing well in the season of the pandemic. 

“Noon ko pa dream to invest in a gasoline station kasi wala siyang lugi at laging steady lang ang income,” he says. “

I’m so thankful to GMA for the good projects they continue to give me and I’m so thankful to God kasi He continues to bless pati yung businesses na naipundar ko.”
