THE pilot episode of the Pokwang-Tonton Gutierrez tandem, It’s Not You, It’s Me feature in Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko raked in a 13-percent rating, based on the NUTAM People Ratings of Nielsen Phils.

Viewers gave the team-up a huge thumbs up as they switched bodies in the story for a fun-filled and magical weekend in the award-winning magical anthology, which aired all-new episodes beginning Sunday, October 3.

The episode introduced the fresh team-up of Pokwang as Sunshine, a doting mother to her kids who is on the brink of separation from her husband; and Tonton as Homer, Sunshine’s husband who is often at odds with his wife.

Completing the cast are Paul Salas as Martin, Shanelle Agustin as Carla, Frances Makil as Grandma Merlie and Maey Bautista as Chuchay.

As a mother herself, Pokwang shares what is the most important takeaway from their story, “Gusto kong matutunan ng viewers dito na ang pamilya, lalo na sa panahon ngayon, ay dapat sinusuportahan ang isa’t isa. Dapat mangibabaw ‘yung mas malawak na pang-unawa at haba ng pasensiya. Wala ng iba pang mas mahalaga sa ngayon kung hindi ang pamilya.”

The actress also expresses her enthusiasm having to work with Tonton and Paul once again.

“Matagal na rin kaming hindi nagkatrabaho ni Tonton. Para kaming may mini-reunion nina Tonton at Paul sa episode na ito kaya noong last taping day namin, naramdaman ko ‘yung separation anxiety. Sobrang sarap katrabaho ni Tonton at nagulat ako na binatang-binata na rin si Paul,” she said.

Grandma Merlie is set to visit her daughter Sunshine and her family.

Her secret dwarf friend, Chuchay, wishes to tag along but Grandma Merlie refuses. She believes that Sunshine’s family is still the loving family she knows.

Unbeknownst to Grandma Merlie, Sunshine and Homer are on the brink of separation and their twins, Carla and Martin, are shocked to see their dad leaving.

With Grandma Merlie’s surprise visit, Sunshine and Homer are forced to pretend that the family is doing fine.

On the other hand, Grandma Merlie discovers that Chuchay has sneaked in her luggage and the two make a deal that no one else should know about her existence.

Chuchay secretly observes the family and finds out about Sunshine and Homer’s impending divorce. Chuchay conjures some magic and the married couple switches bodies.

How will Sunshine and Homer handle this bizarre situation when their relationship is already in shambles? Or will Chuchay’s meddling lead to something good?
