TV5 starts the new year on a high note with a fresh wave of programs starting this January.
Leading the pack is this year’s biggest superhero, Kidlat, expected to electrify the young and the old alike. Kidlat stars Kapatid hunk Derek Ramsay and John Prats along with Ritz Azul, Nadine Samonte, Baron Geisler, Wendell Ramos and acclaimed actor Christopher de Leon.
The superhero action series starts off with a special cinematic premiere at 9:30 PM on January 6. Audiences will find themselves in the middle of all the excitement before the series debuts on January 7 (Monday) right after Wil Time Bigtime.
Also on January 7, Jeepney Jackpot rolls in the laughs led by Mr. Fu and Valeen Montenegro, along with sexy Saida Diola, return of the actor Onemig Bondoc and charming driver Alizon Andres. This fast-paced game show-on-wheels is characteristically Filipino, with program’s pimped out jeepney at the heart of all the fun. Lucky commuters across Metro Manila stand the chance to win cash and prizes just by answering simple questions. Whoever said commuting is a bore will be in for a great ride with Jeepney Jackpot: Pera o Para!, which airs weekdays starting at 4:30PM right before Popstar TV.
“Our dynamic push for 2013 represents TV5’s commitment to lead with innovative programming and quality shows that respond to the Pinoys’ evolving tastes and needs” said TV5 president and CEO Atty. Ray C. Espinosa. “More than ever, the entire Kapatid Network stands by its vision for a truly national network that celebrates the best and the brightest of the Filipino and to raise the standards by which Philippine television would be seen by the rest of the world. We are optimistic that TV5 will make even more Filipino viewers happy all over the country and wherever they may be in the globe,” he added.
The Kapatid Network also brings back two fan favorites from the first season of The Amazing Race Philippines for their very own reality show, Alabang Housewives! Pamela Spella and Vanessa Ishitani are ready for new kinds of adventures, starting January 14 (Monday) at 7:30 AM. The new program will see Pam and Vanessa, as well as their celebrity guests, completing different tasks with elan and style, sharing with us their humor and grit which have made them fan favorites in The Amazing Race.
These new programs are sure to exhilarate Pinoys this January—and this is only the beginning! This 2013, tune in to TV5 for more exciting and fun-filled programs that underscore the true meaning of Happy Maging Kapatid.
