‘Magpakailanman’ returns to TV-A A +A
Friday, October 12, 2012
GMA Network brings back the award-winning and high-rating drama anthology Magpakailanman and it will be hosted by multi-awarded broadcast journalist Mel Tiangco.
Magpakailanman, an original concept and creation of the GMA Entertainment TV Group, was on TV from 2002 to 2007 and has twice been awarded the Best Drama Series category at the Catholic Mass Media Awards. During its five-year run, the program, which was a consistent top-rater, inspired the lives of many Filipinos and promoted good family values to its viewers.
Because of the growing clamor to revive the program, the network is happy to announce the return of Magpakailanman with new elements and more in-depth investigation and dramatization of real-life inspired stories.
Aside from merely telling and narrating the story, Mel Tiangco will take a more participative role in making each story not only inspiring and uplifting but also informative and interesting. This will be about “the real story behind the story.” The show will premiere in November. (PR)
