Pinoys abroad are in for yet another exciting month this August as GMA Pinoy TV celebrates its 16th anniversary, which coincides with the birthday month of no less than the Kapuso power couple Dingdong Dantes and Marian Rivera!
As part of GMA Pinoy TV’s opening salvo to thank the loyal subscribers for their support, a string of exciting shows await the Kapuso abroad not just on the flagship international channel, but also on GMA Life TV and GMA News TV.
Opening the month on a good note via GMA Pinoy TV is the reality game show “Catch Me Out Philippines” beginning August 1 where Jose Manalo and Derrick Monasterio spot the greatest pretender with show-stopping performances. Based on the popular UK original and a first in Philippine entertainment, the show follows two amateur contestants who will go through weeks of intensive training aiming to trick the viewers and celebrity catchers into believing that they are professional entertainers while performing alongside actual experts. The impostor who manages to dupe the most members of the audience wins.
On August 2, the hottest rivalry between two sisters ignites on “Nagbabagang Luha,” the highly-anticipated TV adaptation of the 1988 blockbuster film. The Kapuso remake features the country’s highly-talented stable of stars: award-winning actress Glaiza de Castro as Maita Montaire, versatile actor Rayver Cruz as Alex Montaire; dramatic actor Mike Tan as Bien de Dios, and seasoned actress Ms. Gina Alajar as Mrs. Calida Montaire.
Meanwhile, Atom Araullo gets to know the working children of the pandemic on “The Atom Araullo Specials: Munting Bisig” also this August 1 (July 31 in North America). As the pandemic spread throughout the Philippines, many children opted to use their time to find work and earn a few pesos to help their family survive.
Viewers from all over the world can likewise continue watching their well-loved Kapuso programs such as “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho,” “24 Oras,” “Eat Bulaga,” “Wowowin,” “All-Out Sundays,” “Tadhana,” as well as original GMA Pinoy TV Content “Global Pinoy Unlimited,” “Becoming Pinoy,” “Pinoy A+”, and co-production “Pusong Pinoy sa Amerika” on GMA Pinoy TV
Aside from being GMA Pinoy TV’s anniversary month, August is also Dingdong and Marian’s birthday month! As a treat, the Kapuso abroad can catch DongYan’s much-loved movie “You To Me are Everything” on August 8 where Marian plays the role of Iska, a simple girl who inherits a fortune from her estranged father. She meets Raphael, played by Dingdong, a rich guy whose life has turned upside down and now works as Iska’s business manager in order to reclaim his wealth.
Marian candidly shared how funny Dingdong was while doing the film and fondly remembered her pet piglet ‘Snowy.’ Now happily married, the couple shared these stories with their fans all over the world in GMA Pinoy TV’s previous Fun Connect.
Viewers and DongYan fans in the Philippines can also get to relive the couple’s kilig and bonding moments as the “Pinoy Abroad Fun Connect: DongYan #StrongerTogether” special episode airs locally this August 7 on GTV.
