KAMI learned that many celebrities have been trying to find ways to connect to people and make a living amid the shutdown issue of ABS-CBN.
In a report by ABS-CBN News (authored by Mario Dumaual), it was revealed that the two prominent showbiz personalities will be having new shows on TV5.
Jessy will host a health show entitled “Fit for Life,” while Pokwang will serve as Jose Manalo’s co-host in an upcoming game show in the said network.
The comedienne will also host a morning show with GMA-7 star, Pauleen Luna. The said program is called “Rise and Shine.”
According to Perci Intalan, the programming consultant of TV5, the network’s move to include other artists in its programs are part of their open-door business policy.
“We want to cast a wider net to employ more artists and industry players through blocktime or co-production arrangements and platforms,” he quipped.
