TV5 teams up with Wil Productions in raising the bar in noontime viewing with a new show for Filipinos here and in any of the 79 countries and territories reached by global channel Kapatid TV5. “We’re very excited to bring Wowowillie to every household because this is TV5’s first daily noontime variety show. The management feels that the Network is ready to field Wowowillie in the noontime slot in our mission to provide our daytime viewers more options,” said Perci Intalan, TV5’s first vice president for Creative and Entertainment Production.
The charismatic host will be joined by Mariel Rodriguez, Grace Lee and Camille Villar in the new daily noontime show. Kuya Wil also introduces TV5 princess Arci Munoz, Ava Jugueta of PYT (Pretty Young Thing), sexy comedienne Ethel Booba and show mainstay Lovely Abella to complete the hosts’ line-up.
