- Pokwang is set to become a part of a game show and daily morning talk show on TV5
- The said move was made in the midst of the shutdown order against ABS-CBN
- The comedienne attended the virtual story conference of one of her shows entitled “Rise and Shine”
- She became emotional while talking about accepting projects in other networks
Pokwang suddenly turned emotional while taking about her decision to accept projects in other networks.
KAMI learned that the well-known comedienne is set to host two shows on TV5 amid the much-talked-about shutdown issue of the Kapamilya network.
She will be hosting a feel-good morning show entitled “Rise and Shine” along with Ria Atayde and Kapuso actress Pauleen Luna-Sotto.
Pokwang is also reportedly co-hosting a game show with Jose Manalo.
During the recent virtual story conference of the said morning show, the celebrity shed tears while speaking up about her new project.
As earlier reported by Ricky Lo of The Philippine Star, the comedienne expressed her gratitude because she finally has a job amid the closure of her home network.
“Salamat, may trabaho na tayo,” she quipped.
It can be remembered that Manny V. Pangilinan disclosed a few days ago that his network may accept displaced talents from ABS-CBN as it is currently reviving its entertainment content creation.
“We are revving up our entertainment content creation and will need creatives, talents, directors, scriptwriters, cameraman, etc.,” he stated.
“If they are willing and able to work with us, we’re prepared to offer alternative jobs for the relevant displaced workers over time,” he added.
Pokwang, or Marietta Subong in real life, is a 49-year-old Filipina actress known for her comedy films such as “Call Center Girl” and “The Mommy Returns.”
She recently entertained the viewers of “Eat Bulaga” because of her unexpected guesting on the show’s “Bawal Judgmental” segment.
The celebrity also had a hilarious reaction to Wikipedia crowing her as the Miss Universe 2001.
