The contract signing substantiates the two networks commitment in providing premiere programs for weekdays, weekends, and Sunday primetime slots.

With that, ABS-CBN will continue airing reputable weekday television series, such as “FPJ’s Batang Quiapo,” “The Iron Heart,” “Dirty Linen,” and “The Tale of Nokdu” on the Kapatid network. 

“Everybody, Sing!” remains as a household program during the weekend, just the same as “ASAP Natin ‘To” retains its Sunday noontime post under TV5. 

ABS-CBN and TV5 share the same goal of growing stronger together

On top of the reprised content agreement, TV5 and ABS-CBN are set to co-produce two afternoon programs, “Pira-Pirasong Paraiso” and “Nag-aapoy na Damdamin.” These two shows will begin premiere in July as part of TV5’s “Hapon Champion Block.” 


“We are very happy to sign this new agreement for the next five years. It’s a partnership which we’ve been very happy with. I think there are a lot of opportunities that we can do together,” ABS-CBN chairman Mark Lopez remarks in an interview. 

According to Sir Mark, the two networks have a lineup of programs soon to debut for their audience. Moving forward, he made a promise of rendering quality and “right content for everyone.” 

The sentiment is just as high for TV5 president and CEO Guido Zaballero who teased that the agreement aims to solidify their mutual goal of building a more diplomatic relationship with each other. 

“We intend to strengthen our partnership with ABS-CBN. Like they say, stronger together. It is our firm belief that by solidifying it with the five-year partnership, we can also grow together.”

The contract signing comes amid ABS-CBN made the decision to pull out its noontime show “It’s Showtime” from TV5 and have it transferred to GMA-7’s sister network, GTV. 

The network transfer was projected as a “respectful” rejection of TV5’s offer to place the program for a 4:30 p.m. timeslot to give way for a “priority” noontime show bannered by original “Eat Bulaga!” trio, Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.  

“It’s Showtime” aired its last episode under TV5 earlier today, June 30, and will continue its regular broadcast on GTV starting July 1, 2023.
