Is it true that the talents of ABS-CBN and Star Magic already signed contracts with TV5?
ABS-CBN and Star Magic talents are being rumored to have signed contracts already with the management of TV5.
Following the denial of the franchise application of the Kapamilya network, some talents and employees already seek jobs in other networks. Since the Kapatid network is reviving its entertainment department, it is expected that more and more Kapamilya stars will be seen on TV5’s shows.
Star Magic, the talent management company of ABS-CBN previously expressed that they are now allowing their talents to be part of shows in other networks.
In line with this, it is rumored that some Kapamilya stars already signed contracts with the management of the Kapatid network. Former Congressman Albee Benitez, one of the major blocktimers of TV5 is working together with Star Magic head Johnny Manahan, also known as Mr. M.
Based on the article from Abante Entertainment, this venture would lead to the transfer of ABS-CBN talents to TV5. It is said that these talents from the Kapamilya network will occupy the 18-hour blocktime allotted for Benitez’s venture.
A new update about this rumor stated that Benitez and TV5 already closed this deal by signing the multi-billion block time contract. It is also rumored that Kapamilya hosts Billy Crawford and Luis Manzano will have a show on the Kapatid network.
To recall, it was rumored that Billy and Luis will host the new noontime show on TV5. The girlfriend if Luis, Jessy Mendiola, now has her own fitness show on the said network.
However, Fit For Life has received criticisms from seasoned viewers of the network because Jessy’s fitness show is too modern for them. Previously, her timeslot was for Healing Galing and its producer claimed that the network did not inform that their show will be replaced.
