Powerhouse comedians in GMA-7’s newest sitcom

Home to the best family sitcoms in the country, GMA Network launches its newest comedy series Hay Bahay!, which premieres tonight.

Hay Bahay! shows the daily life of a typical Filipino family. It stars Philippine showbiz’s biggest names in comedy and 47th  Guillermo Mendoza Memorial Scholarship Foundation (GMMSF) Box Office King and Queen Bossing Vic Sotto and Aiai delas Alas.

The series also marks Kristine Hermosa’s much-awaited TV comeback as she takes the role of Batch, the loving wife of Yoyo, played by her real-life beau Oyo Sotto. In the story, the newlyweds Batch and Yoyo purchase a well-furnished house with three huge bedrooms and a spacious living room situated in a prime location at a very low price. However, the house was sold relatively cheap because the people who built it mistakenly had just one toilet in the entire house.

The couple did not regret their impulsive decision of purchasing the house since it is near transportation facilities and nested in a safe neighborhood. They plan to renovate their property and realize the need to rent out the two vacant rooms to save up, finish paying their loan, and proceed with the renovation.

First to move in a tenant is food-blogger and bachelor, Vio (Vic Sotto), who is excessively obsessed with cleanliness, followed by the painfully sloppy and untidy events coordinator Lav (Ai-Ai delas Alas). With their opposite personalities, the two develop an unfriendly relationship and they eventually plot strategies to throw each other out of the house.

Helping Vio to piss off Lav is his cousin Mael (Jose Manalo), a TNT (tago ng tago) overseas but had been deported back to the Philippines. He assists  Vio in cooking for his food blog. Lav has a half-brother and aspiring comedian, Sikat (Wally Bayola) who colludes with her in challenging Vio’s attacks. Meanwhile, Nenuca (Ruby Rodriguez), Batch’s meddling mother adds to the household problems rather than offering solutions. She joins the riot once she learns that her daughter is pregnant.

What will happen in a house full of clashing personalities? Who wins among the tenants? Will Yoyo and Batch achieve peace and order in their warm and accommodating, but lacking house?

Written and directed by Bibeth Orteza, the wackiest sitcom on GMA, Hay Bahay! debuts tonight  after 24 Oras Weekend only on GMA.
