GMA News and Public Affairs—the group behind the groundbreaking socio-political and historical TV series Bayan Ko, Katipunan, Ilustrado, Titser, and Sa Puso Ni Dok—is coming up with a new weekly series that hopes to revive Filipinos’ interest in folk tales.


Entitled Alamat, the series features six episodes of 2D and 3D animated renditions of Philippine legends namely, Alamat ng Bayabas, Juan Tamad, Langgam at Tipaklong, Mariang Sinukuan, Mahiwagang Singsing, and Ang Unang Bahaghari. It will air worldwide on GMA Pinoy TV beginning July 19.


Six teams of writers, directors, producers, actor-dubbers and professional animators, some of whom had prior experience in giant animation studios abroad, worked on the project.


According to Jaileen Jimeno, program manager, the primary goal of the series is to encourage the audience, especially young viewers, to appreciate the once well-loved but now almost forgotten tales of lore which were used by elders to impart good values and traditions to the youth of their time.


Each episode features the voices of various Kapuso stars and personalities who give life to the characters. The first episode, Alamat ng Bayabas, will showcase the voices of veteran actor Pen Medina and GMA Artist Center talent Harvey Almoneda.


Characters for the next five episodes are voiced by Gabby Eigenmann, Glaiza de Castro, Mike Tan, Kylie Padilla, Louise de los Reyes, Bea Binene, Jeric Gonzales, Betong Sumaya, Love Añover, Maey Bautista, Pekto, John Feir, Tonipet Gaba, and Roi Vinzon.

 

Tune in to the premiere episode of Alamat on July 19 on GMA Pinoy TV.

This is a story about how a rich man, Oscar (Al Tantay), finds out that his daughter, Jade (Rhian Ramos), is a lesbian, how it propels him to offer five million pesos to the man who will marry her, and how it hurls the whole family into a series of discoveries.

 

And as Jade discovers something about herself, will she still be able to experience unconditional love from her family and friends? Will she be able to hold on to her personal truths and fight for her love even if it will destroy her family?

 

The drama project showcases Rhian Ramos’ versatility as an actress, as she breathes life to the character of Jade Tanchingco, her most challenging role to date.

GMA International, the business unit that manages the operation and distribution of GMA Network’s international channels, marks another year of success as it continues to strengthen its presence abroad.

 

The year 2013 saw GMA Pinoy TV, GMA Life TV and GMA News TV International reaching more Filipino households abroad with Palau and Malaysia being the latest addition to over a hundred countries and territories where the channels are available.

In an effort to provide its viewers with better services, the channels were also launched on new carriers in Singapore, Canada, and, most notably, in the Middle East which has the second largest Filipino population next to North America.

 

Consistent with the Network’s purpose of providing superior news and entertainment, GMA Pinoy TV and GMA Life TV presented its subscribers with new original shows such as The Balikbayan Project, the first original series produced by GMA Pinoy TV, which follows the Basco family as they rediscover their roots in the Philippines, and Home Away From Home, a docu-series that features the homes of noteworthy Filipinos from all over the world. Furthermore, GMA News TV International has included regional newscasts in its programming lineup, in order to connect ourkababayans overseas with their home provinces.

 

As a testament to its successful endeavors throughout the year, GMA International has also been recognized by various award-giving bodies for their business practices and original programs. GMA won a record of eight NAMIC Excellence in Multicultural Marketing Awards (EMMA), a prestigious global marketing competition, which is the most the Network has received in its history of inclusion in the said competition.

 

GMA Pinoy TV’s longest running program on immigration law, Pusong Pinoy sa Amerika, garnered a bronze Telly Award in the Information Category and won for Best TV Show in the Migration Advocacy and Media Awards. Moreover, the program was cited for its Outstanding Reporting on Civil Liberties Ethnic Communities in the NAM Ethnic Media Awards.

 

Furthermore, Power ng Pinoy, a program that showcases success stories of Filipinos abroad, also accumulated major wins in three prestigious competitions, receiving two gold Hermes Awards, two bronze Tellys, and an Honorable Mention in the Plaridel Awards.

 

Continuously upholding its promise of bringing Filipinos closer to home, the Network’s international operations unit goes beyond developing original and relevant programming for its Filipino subscribers by also initiating on-ground events for the Filipino community abroad.

 

To celebrate its eighth year, GMA International, with My-HD, its new partner in the Middle East, brought Christian Bautista, Rachelle Ann Go, Julie Ann San Jose and Marian Rivera to Dubai for a concert entitled Kapusong Pinoy sa Dubai which attracted scores of supporters from the Middle East.

 

Likewise, Kapuso artists were on hand to join their fellow Pinoys in the different celebrations of Philippine Independence Day outside the country. Apart from these festivities, GMA International also took part in the OPM Festival and Pista sa Nayon event in Canada, which highlighted the best of Filipino Music; Battle of the Barrios, a talent competition for the Fil-Am youth in New York; and the eagerly anticipated My Husband’s Lover US Tour that solidified the show’s status as a groundbreaking success.

 

Owing to recent events, some carriers of GMA International broadcast the channels free of charge, effectively keeping our overseas countrymen updated on the developments since the Yolanda tragedy. GMA International also showed solidarity with the Filipino community abroad in the fundraising initiatives for the victims of the typhoon.

 

“GMA International remains one at heart with Filipinos abroad,” expressed GMA VP and Head of International Operations, Joseph Francia. “We look forward to continuing our efforts of sharing the Kapuso experience to our kababayans in the years to come.”

Filipinos from all parts of the world will have the chance to look back on the colourful and successful celebration of the Philippines’ 115th Independence Day as GMA Pinoy TV shares the event highlights in a TV special dubbedProud to be Pinoy: Philippine Independence Day Celebration 2013.

 

GMA International – the business unit handling the operations and distribution of the Kapuso Network’s three international channels – was at the heart of this worldwide affair in partnership with different Filipino-American and Filipino-Canadian groups and communities.

 

Kapuso artists participated in key events across the United States and Canada starting off with the Philippine Independence Day Celebration in New York attended by Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., Marian Rivera, Rafael Rosell and Julie Anne San Jose. The four performed in a special number and also greeted their kababayans on board the much-adored Kapuso float.

 

Over in California, two commemorative events were held to mark the Independence Day celebration – the Philippine Cultural Committee (PCC)’s Pista sa Nayon in Vallejo and the Balilkatan sa Pag-Unlad in Carson City.

 

Pista sa Nayon was highlighted by Dennis Trillo and Glaiza de Castro’s impressive performances, along with the reenactment of our country’s history entitled “Kasaysayan ng Lahi,” which, noted journalist, Greg Macabenta helped mount. In Carson City, Marian Rivera and Rafael Rosell were warmly received by their Kapuso fans, who were treated in return, with the Kapuso stars’ outstanding performances.

 

Dennis Trillo and Glaiza de Castro also wowed the audience in Seattle at the equally successful Pagdiriwang 2013.Glaiza also participated at the Philippine American Friendship Parade and Festival at West Side Avenue and Lincoln Park in Jersey City.

 

Not to be left behind, Pinoys in Toronto, Canada had their Pinoy Fiesta and Trade Show that turned out to be a big hit as well. Dennis Trillo, Rafael Rosell and Glaiza de Castro added glitter to the occasion much to the delight of their adoring fans.

 

The Kapuso artists certainly did not disappoint the thousands of Filipinos who came to commemorate such important milestone in Philippine history. All these would not have been possible without the concerted effort of GMA International and their partners as they worked hand in hand in giving our kababayans truly an enjoyable and memorable experience.

 

Witness all these in Proud to be Pinoy: Philippine Independence Day Celebration 2013 TV special which will air on July 28 on GMA’s flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV.
