With a rich and vibrant mix of program genres, GMA Life TV continues to celebrate the best in Filipino lifestyle as it unveils its latest lineup for 2014.

Fashion and reality television enthusiasts alike will be delighted as GMA Life TV, in partnership with One Mega Publishing Group, brings the second season of MEGA Young Designers Competition to Filipino homes abroad. The competition heats up as viewers tune in to see which of the country’s talented aspiring fashion designers will make the cut.

GMA Life TV also spices up its culinary offerings with the premiere of the Appetite Wars hosted by Victor Aliwalas and Victor Basa. This cooking competition produced by One Mega Publishing Group features chefs from all walks of life battling in the kitchen to impress their celebrity dinner guests. Furthermore, the channel continues to please its viewers’ palates with the latest episodes of Sarap Diva hosted by Asia’s Songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid and the multi-awarded cooking program, Kusina Master hosted by celebrity Chef Pablo “Boy” Logro.

Moreover, the country’s first international lifestyle channel amps up its first quarter with a double serving of drama as it begins airing English-dubbed versions of two well-loved GMA series – Little Star and Sinner or Saint.

Diego, a young singing sensation portrayed by promising child actor Nicky Castro, is the pivotal character in the heartwarming family drama Little Star. This fascinating story focuses on how he touches the lives of the people around him – a famous female singer, her personal assistant, a photographer and an opportunist. It also stars the multi-talented Kapuso artists Mark Anthony Fernandez, Jennylyn Mercado, Paolo Contis and Lovi Poe.

The enthralling series Sinner or Saint is a tale of love, deceit and betrayal featuring award-winning actor Dennis Trillo as Raul, an aspiring law student, and Bianca King as his childhood friend-turned-lover. Things turn awry as a tragic incident drives the two apart, testing their love.

Adding more fun and entertainment to late night viewing is the The Medyo Late Night Show with Jojo A. hosted by Jojo Alejar. The show is a lively mixture of comedy skits with the addition of live guestings and a performance by an up-and-coming band.

Furthermore, GMA Life TV boosts its weekend movie offerings this February with Indie Fest, showcasing some of the finest local independent films. Airing on February 2, Ang Sayaw ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa, featuring Rocco Nacino and Jean Garcia, combines dance and poetry in a social exploration of feminist and gay issues. Mayohan, a coming of age story set amidst the religious festivities in May starring Lovi Poe, will reach television screens on February 9. In Biyaheng Lupa airing on February 16, Eugene Domingo joins a motley cast of characters on a particularly revealing journey onboard a bus bound for Bicol. And on February 23, I-libings tackles the subject of life and death as it focuses on Isabel, played by Glaiza de Castro, interning as a funeral videographer.

In celebration of International Women’s Month this March, the channel presents five classic films featuring several of Philippine cinema’s premier dramatic actresses – Nora Aunor in Dash A Lotsa Nonsents! on March 2, Judy Ann Santos and Gladys Reyes in Kasal-kasalan… Sakalan on March 9, Vilma Santos in Pakawalan Mo Ako on March 16, Sharon Cuneta, Hilda Koronel and Angel Aquino in Crying Ladies on March 23, and Lorna Tolentino in Gaano Kita Kamahal on March 30.

Completing their first quarter line up, GMA Life TV offers Koreanovela aficionados a chance to watch the tagalog-dubbed series such as Full House and My Rosy Life that were big hits back home.

GMA-7’s Kusina Master proves its international caliber once more after winning as Best Lifestyle Program at the prestigious 19th Annual NAMIC Vision Awards. Chef Boy Logro’s well-loved cooking show, which was submitted as an entry for GMA Life TV, the first Filipino lifestyle channel abroad, also makes history as the first ever winner from GMA as well as the Philippines in the said competition.


GMA Pinoy TV’s co-production Pusong Pinoy Sa Amerika, on the other hand, bagged a nomination in the Foreign Language Category.


GMA Vice President and Head of International Operations Joseph T. Francia considers their latest achievement as an important milestone for GMA Life TV, which recently marked its fifth anniversary. “This award is truly an honor for both GMA Life TV and the excellent team behind Kusina Master, confirming its world class standards for the second time this year,” he said.


Kusina Master bested entries from Scripps, one of the biggest TV networks in the US. This award comes right on the heels of the program’s recent victory at the 2013 US International Film and Video Festival, wherein it earned a Certificate for Creative Excellence.


GMA OIC for Entertainment TV Lilybeth G. Rasonable expresses her thanks for all the recognition and praise that Kusina Master has been receiving not only in the Philippines, but also internationally. “We sincerely thank theNAMIC Vision Awards for this honor and we commit to continue delivering superior information and entertainment to our audience here and abroad,” she enthused.


Nicol Turner-Lee, Ph.D, President and CEO of the National Association of Minorities in Communications (NAMIC), informed GMA International of the win and extended her “congratulations on this esteemed honor.”


Representing GMA International at the awarding ceremony held last July 11 at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, California were Jush Andowitt, GMA International Marketing Consultant, and respected immigration lawyer Atty. Lou Tancinco, host and producer of “Pusong Pinoy sa Amerika.”


The NAMIC Vision Awards is dubbed as “a celebration of multicultural contributions in the media industry.” It is “one of the few national (US-wide) competitions that salute original television or digital content that reflects the depth and breadth of experience and contributions of people of color.” The likes of CNN, HBO, Disney, ESPN, Nickelodeon and other mainstream US networks usually dominate the Vision Awards.



GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV along with GMA News TV International can be seen in Canada and the US and in countries in Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and Asia Pacific.
