- The new Kapuso variety show entitled “Studio 7” was announced to be aired on primetime Sunday
- Its production manager explained the reason why the show will not go against ASAP
- The Kapuso executive also disclosed what they feared most about the new program
A GMA-7 executive finally disclosed the reason why a new variety show entitled “Studio 7” will not air on the same timeslot with rival network’s “ASAP.”
KAMI learned that it was Ruth Marinas, the production manager of the upcoming show, who explained that they will have to air Studio 7 on Sunday primetime slot.
She said the current Kapuso show “Sunday PinaSaya” is doing a great job in going head-to-head with the rival network’s variety program.
Ruth also expressed that it was really their intention to conceptualize a primetime variety show and leave Sunday PinaSaya on its present timeslot.
"Well, Sunday PinaSaya is doing very well, so parang okay na siya doon, e. "So gumawa kami ng pang-gabi naman, parang Penthouse (Live!). Si SPS na sa ASAP, okay na siya doon,” she quipped in an interview with PEP.ph.
"Doing well naman si SPS, there's no reason na ilipat siya or whatever. Hindi, e. Ang lakas lakas ng SPS,” she added.
Meanwhile, the Kapuso executive exposed that they are afraid of how people would find the new show.
Ruth believed that it is just a normal feeling and that all they have to do is to think of what will click to the audience.
"Well, siyempre in everything that we do, in every show that we launch, there's always that fear. Will it work? Yung ideas ba namin, sa tingin namin, magugustuhan siya ng audience?” she stressed.
"Nandoon palagi kasi parang pag hindi ka naman yata natakot or ninerbiyos, parang weird ka na, di ba? So siyempre kami inisip namin, ano ba yung uso? Ano ba yung ngayon?” she added.
The much-awaited GMA show will feature both homegrown and newly-installed Kapuso artists such as Christian Bautista, Mark Bautista, Julie Anne San Jose, Rayver Cruz, Cassy and Mavy Legaspi, and many more.
It will air its first episode on October 14 replacing The Clash.
