What do you get when you bring a promdi widower dad, his pasosyal unica hija, and their constant disagreements together in one posh condo unit?

Beginning October 14 in various territories abroad, loyal Kapuso viewers are in for more exciting and hilarious nights as GMA Network debuts its newest sitcom, Daddy’s Gurl.

Bringing in the laughs is the no-fail comedic duo of Bossing Vic Sotto and Phenomenal Star Maine Mendoza as Barak and Visitacion “Stacy” Otogan. Barak is a devoted husband and the owner of Otogan Farm in Batangas. Visitacion, on the other hand, is a loving daughter.

When she moved to Manila, she changed her name to Stacy. She is a trendsetter slash influencer slash digital maven whose daily goal is to trend on social media.

Adding fun to the sitcom is Wally Bayola as Marikit Otogan, the wife of Barak. When she passed away, her soul didn’t really leave and she is able to talk only to Barak through a portrait she left behind.

Also showcasing his comedic chops is Oyo Sotto as Lance Saavedra, Stacy’s strict boss.

He’s a smooth talker and thinks very highly of himself.

Joining them are other characters that will add color to their everyday lives: Angelika Dela Cruz as Aling Oprah, the single and always available neighbor of Stacy and Barak who has a crush on him; Chamyto as himself, Oprah’s assistant; Benjie Paras as Tomas or Tom, Barak’s kind but gullible helper who comes to Manila with him; Jelson Bay as Gerardo or Gerry, Barak’s right-hand man who may be small but thinks big; Chichirita as Beauty, Stacy’s friend and officemate; Kevin Santos as Daboy, Stacy’s handsome and sophisticated but not-so-manly friend.

When Barak lost his wife, Marikit, he became set on fulfilling her dying wish—that he guides and watches over their only daughter, Visitacion, until such time that she can stand on her own feet. And so, he decided to move to Manila to be with her. But coming from the province, Barak wasn’t used to urban condo living, and Visitacion wasn’t used to having her probisyano dad and his “old school” habits around. They may fight a lot over everything, but soon they learn that despite their so-called generation gap, they’re a family. And to put it simply, they love each other. Visitacion, or “Stacy” as she would like to call herself, is a daddy’s girl after all.
