The press launch took place yesterday, April 25, at TV5 Delta Studio, where the expensive set was mounted.
It will feature “stories ng regular people na nakakabilib…” and “anything good!”
And she hopes “to inspire, to encourage, to entertain, and make people laugh.”
The pilot episode will be aired on May 7, and the time slot will most likely be in the afternoon.
Again, her one-billion-peso talent fee was brought up.
And again, she underscored that her transfer from ABS-CBN to TV5 is “not about money.”
“Remember that it’s about 200 million a year for five years. Tanggalan mo pa ng taxes, tanggalan mo pa ng porsiyento ng iba’t ibang tao, so yun din ang kinikita ko.
“So it’s not about the one-billion-[peso] contract…
“Pinaghirapan ko naman po ito…Hindi ako nagulat sa one billion lalo na kung nag-minus-minus na.”
She felt flattered by the remark made by Manny Pangilinan, the network’s chairman.
“In fairness, sabi ni MVP, my God…naku, iku-quote ko talaga siya… ‘Sharon, one billion? No. Sharon is two billion!’”
Going back to her career move, she emphasized that it was prompted by “creative freedom” and “a little respect.”
She added, “I think after what I’ve built for over three decades, I wanted a show that I felt, after all my hard work, I deserve it.”
But Kapamilya fans, don’t get her wrong…
Sharon is obviously happy with her new home, but “I’ll always be grateful to ABS-CBN.”
