Last January 26, Starmometer reported that the Comedy King–Dolphy–is 80% assured of leaving the kapamilya network to transfer to TV5. This morning, Nitz Miralles of Pilipino Star Ngayon divulged in her column that Dolphy’s plan to be a “Ka-shake” is now confirmed!
And it’s not only Dolphy who is transferring to Manny Pangilinan‘s tv station. He is taking the Diamond Star with him–her daughter in “John en Marsha”–Maricel Soriano.
Maricel has no project with ABS-CBN since Florinda ended last October 2, 2009. She is supposed to star in “Nagai-Aida” (A Long Time Ago) together with Cesar Montano and Ai Ai delas Alas but kapamilya executives officialy shelved the project.
On the other hand, Dolphy‘s last project on ABS-CBN was “Utoy” which production began in early 2008. It is a fantasy drama series which also stars Makisig Morales. Although the King of Comedy already finished shooting “Utoy”, there’s no definite date yet as to when it will be released.
In the “Ka-Shake” network, Maricel will have a drama anthology of her own while Dolphy will star in a sitcom.
