In the latest vlog of ABS-CBN director and executive Laurenti “Lauren” Dyogi, he discussed the future plans of ABS-CBN after the franchise denial.
According to the director, ABS-CBN will continue to produce new programs and will continue to manage Kapamilya network artists under Star Magic, Rise Artists of Star Cinema, and Star Hunt management.
This was his revelation when he confirmed that some stars will change to other networks, “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 also revealed that despite the higher expenses that ABS CBN will be having due to franchise denial, ABS-CBN’s continued production of new programs is one way to fulfill its promise to serve the Filipinos.
“Mas mahal na gumawa ng mga programa ngayon dahil po sa safety protocols at dahil wala po kami sa free TV. Ang kita po namin ay kung ikukumpara sa kilohan ay halos isang guhit na lang.”
Because for the network, new shows instead of replays will serve as entertainment to alleviate the difficulty that Filipinos face in these trying times.
“Alam niyo kung iisipin lang namin ang kita ng kompanya, mas madali pong tumigil at hindi gumawa ng programa at mag-replay na lang po kami. Pero ang tingin po namin sa panabon na ito ay matugunan namin ang aming commitment to serve sa atin pong mga kababayan. Dahil sila po ngayon ay naghahanap ng konting aliw na maibsan ang kanillag hirap sa panahong ito”
According to Direk Lauren, ABS-CBN is preparing for their new projects like Cara Y Cruz starring Julia Barretto; the new show with Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla; and Walang Hanggang Paalam led by Angelica Panganiban, Zanjoe Marudo, Arci Munoz, and Paulo Avelino.
Angelica will also have a talk show, Ask Angelica. She is also the leading lady of Coco Martin in Love or Money, the official entry in the delayed Metro Manila Summer Film Festival last April 2020.
