On November 24, Director Jerry Lopez Sineneng joined the exodus of Kapamilya creatives as he moved to GMA Network after 26 years of working with ABS-CBN.
In a press statement released upon his transfer, Sineneng said he is excited to work with people he had never worked with before.
“I am most excited with the prospect that I will be working with a group of actors, creative team, staff, and crew, whom I have never worked before.
“I believe that life is a continuous learning process, and I am excited to interact with a different brand of talents.”
According to reports, the former Kapamilya director will work on Kapuso teleserye, Widows’ Web.
Direk Jerry started his TV directing career in ABS-CBN’s drama anthology, Maalaala Mo Kaya. His first teleserye was Esperanza with Judy Ann Santos in 1997.
Among his projects are Labs Ko Si Babe, Basta’t Kasama Kita, Maria Flordeluna, Kahit Isang Saglit, Dahil May Isang Ikaw, Imortal, Walang Hanggan, Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala, Hawak Kamay, A Love To Last, Kadenang Ginto, Love Thy Woman, and La Vida Lena.
Sineneng also spearheaded movies for Star Cinema such as Mara Clara: The Movie, Flames: The Movie, Way Back Home, and Maybe This Time.
He is the most recent addition to the creative minds behind the Kapamilya network, who found work outside of ABS-CBN following its shutdown in 2020. These are Johnny Manahan, Mariole Alberto, Bobet Vidanes, Jeffrey Jeturian, Andoy Ranay, Ricky Lee, Reggie Amigo, and Mark Angos.
