The debut of “Against All Odds,” the upcoming television series of actress Judy Ann Santos, has been pushed back to next year.

But Santos clarified that she does not feel bad about the delay. “Against All Odds” was originally scheduled to start airing this month.

Actually masaya kami sa set, kalmado lang very relaxed,” she said.

Santos added that she appreciates the honesty of the management not to rush the show.

Ako rin naman, ‘yung opinyon ko din naman, ayaw ko din naman mag-tape ng for airing kasi hindi mo maseseryoso ‘yung trabaho kasi lagi kang ngarag sa pag-arte, tapos hindi ka puwede mag-take two, mag-take three kasi for airing nga siya,” she said.

Santos, whose last teleserye was the primetime drama “Habang May Buhay” in 2010, said she wants her TV comeback to be beautiful.

“Ayaw ko kasi ‘yung wala akong choice. Hindi naman ako sa nagmamaldita no, pero ang tagal ko kasing hindi umarte sa telebisyon kaya gusto ko kapag lumabas ‘yung soap na ginagawa namin, ‘yung dekalidad ‘yung ipapakita namin para worth naman ‘yung paghihintay ng mga tao,” she explained.

Mas gusto ko na binigyan nila ako ng time manamnam itong teleserye na ito. At saka ibang iba kasi ‘yung istorya, ibang-iba ‘yung character, at saka very physically demanding din siya. Ang daming paghahandang gagawin. Ayaw ko naman na ilabas siyang half-baked kasi hindi siya napagtuunan ng pansin dahil hinahabol mo yung airtime mo so okay na rin ako,” Santos added.

Actor Sam Milby, who will be working opposite Santos in the show, shares Santos’s feelings about the delay.

The airing, ‘yung plano was around this time so okay naman. Siyempre mas okay na paglabas, maayos, it’s prepared. Ayaw ko ng nagra-rush, nagmamadali din,” he said.

Meanwhile, Santos is also set to return to her hosting duties for the adult edition of the cooking competition, “MasterChef Pinoy Edition.” (MNS)
