Lauren Dyogi, the head of entertainment production of ABS-CBN, recently addressed several questions on social media about celebrities transferring to other networks amid shutdown issue.
KAMI learned that the prominent director spoke up about the said matter through a video that he uploaded on YouTube on September 9.
He initially stated that although there is COVID-19 pandemic and the network failed to get a 25-year franchise, it does not stop from producing quality content for the viewers.
Dyogi also mentioned that the “transfer issue” of some Kapamilya artists is not new anymore because it regularly happens even without a crisis.
As he continued with his message, the ABS-CBN executive admitted that it is flattering to think that there are other agencies that are interested in Kapamilya stars.
“Hindi naman po ito bago. Sa mga nakaraang panahon, nangyari na po ito at pinayagan namin sila. At ayaw namin na mapagkaitan sila ng hanapbuhay o kabuhayan. Kaya sa darating na panahon, maaring makita niyo ang ilan sa aming Kapamilya stars o artist na nagiging guest o nagiging bahagi ng ibang network," he quipped.
"Sa aming nakaraang pag-uusap sa ilan naming contract stars, nabalitaan namin o nalaman namin na kahit hindi pa kami nagbawas ng programa o hindi pa kami nawalan ng prangkisa, marami na pong managers o talent agency ang lumapit sa aming artista para tanungin kung interesado silang lumipat o maging bahagi ng ibang network. Alam niyo po nakakatuwang marinig po yun. It's flattering. It's a compliment to us kasi dito namin napapatunayan na ang aming mga Kapamilya stars ay de-calibre talaga at in-demand kaya hinahabol sila ng ibang agencies or management,” he added.
