FOLLOWING the success of its counter-programming strategy in its ‘Weekend Do It Better’ programs and ‘Everyday, All The Way’ primetime block, TV5 continues to do away with traditional television programming this 2014.
The Kapatid network begins the year with a bang with its daily programs that are both surprising and out-of-the-box. Coming from the success of the daily primetime serye “Madam Chairman,” Megastar Sharon Cuneta will carry on to the daily tawa-serye “My Pirated Family.” In this series, Sharon will play a one-of-a-kind street-smart woman who cons her way to the world of the rich and famous by putting together a fake family.
Aside from “My Pirated Family,” Sharon will launch her first-ever drama anthology, “Minamahal.” Further, the network will also have a Philippine adaptation of two hit Korean dramas, “Baker King” and “My Fair Lady.”
TV5 also dares to offer more than the daily 30-minute teleseryes, providing hour-long dramas that promise to be bold. Starting January, Marvin Agustin, Neri Naig, Bianca King and Martin Escudero will star in “Obsession,” a cutting-edge medical drama about a woman who undergoes extensive cosmetic surgery to win back the heart of the man she’s obsessed with. Meanwhile, acclaimed actress Jasmine Curtis Smith stars in a self-titled drama series as a fictional version of herself.
Second quarter of 2014 brings the local adaptation of the US hit series “Pretty Little Liars.” Top-billed by TV5 homegrown talents Sophie Albert, Chanel Morales, Stephanie Rowe and introducing Daniel Lee.
