Did TV5 offer projects to Kapamilya stars amid the ABS-CBN franchise issue?
ABS-CBN Franchise Issue – How true is it that Piolo Pascual, Jericho Rosales, and Bea Alonzo already received offers from TV5 as their home network is facing the franchise renewal issue.
For several years, the three aforementioned stars of the Kapamilya network have been doing various projects whether on TV, movies, or other showbiz engagements. However, as the network is now facing the biggest obstacle that it could possibly face, every talent or employee also feels the burden.
Another painful obstacle for the TV giant happened just recently as the National Telecommunications Commission also stopped the Kapamilya shows from airing on TV Plus and SKY Direct. Avid viewers of the Kapamilya network are definitely saddened by this.
The question now arises, what will happen to the shows of ABS-CBN, especially those who resumed their taping already such as Ang Probinsyano and Love Thy Woman? Another question would be, what will happen to the talents?
Based on the article from Pang-Masa, stars like Piolo, Jericho, and Bea already have offers from TV5 to do a teleserye.
It is speculated that a wealthy producer wants to air the teleserye on TV5 as blocktimer and targeted cast members will be the three of the biggest stars of ABS-CBN.
According to entertainment columnist Salve Asis, a source told her that the management or network contracts of the Kapamilya stars were already suspended. It is said that this means that talents of ABS-CBN are free to do projects with other networks and that includes GMA, as long as they will ask permission.
The source added that there will be no problem if some talents will already decide to be released from the network.
