New TV5 Shows include Iskul Bukol and Bagets

AT THE CHRISTMAS Party of TV5 for the press, creative head Perci Intalan unveiled their coming shows for 2011, most of which are remakes of old movies and TV shows, led by “Iskul Bukol”, the Tito Vic & Joey sitcom that ran on IBC-13 for 13 years and will now star Ryan Agoncillo, Shivaker and Kean Cipriano. Many projects will be co-prods with Viva Films as they’re remakes of past Viva hits like “Bagets” with Aga Muhlach, “Utol Kong Hoodlum” with Robin Padilla “Humanap Ka ng Panget” with Andrew E and “P.S. I Love You” with Sharon and Gabby. JC De Vera was so elated when told he reprise the Robin role in “Utol Kong Hoodlum” and he’ll be paired with new discovery Jasmine Curtis, the younger sister of Anne.

Other projects include the remake of “Babaeng Hampaslupa”. Past versions starred the late Nida Blanca in 1952 and Maricel Soriano in the late 80s where her short-lived romance with Edu Manzano bloomed. This time, the lead role will be played by TV resident star Alex Gonzaga, supported by the comebacking Alice Disxon. Two Carlo Caparas projects are also slated: “Bangis” and “Limang Daliri ng Diyos”. Cristy Fermin will also host a drama show based on the true to life stories of celebrities, “Star Confessions”. TV5 also got the rights for the local version of the hit U.S. reality show, “Extreme Makeover Home Edition”. 12 local families will be chosen and their lives will undergo extreme makeover where they’ll have renovation of their homes, with new appliances, and hopefully, new values and attitudes in life.
