GMA-7 launches a “human drama” program titled Bingit, which features real life-or-death situations of celebrities, popular personalities, and even ordinary individuals.
Bingit uses combined elements of interview, actual videos and photos and highly-emotional dramatizations to present the power of the human spirit to last and overcome life-threatening situations.
GMA-7’s Program Manager Enri Calaycay told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the media during the September 16 press preview at GMA Network Center why the show will not have an actual host. She pointed out that their program would rather focus more on their story of the subjects.
“Naisip lang po namin talaga na gusto naming highlight… ang maging focus lang po talaga ng show is the story of the case studies,” Ms. Enri said.
“Nasa kanila yung attention. Hindi sa host o ano.”
For their first episode, the info-tainment program features the near-death experience of Senior Inspector June Abrazado, the lone survivor of the plane crash that killed former DILG Secretary Jesse Robredo last August 18, 2012.
Ms. Enri said that her team is thankful for June’s cooperation and for trusting them to share his story, “Ang ginawa po, tinawagan siya ng researcher.”
She continued, “Mineeting po namin siya para i-kuwento sa kanya yung show, kung ano yung objective ng show, ano yung hinihingi namin from him.
“After that meeting po with the writer and the researcher, pumayag naman po siya.
“So, very thankful po kami sa kanya na pinagkatiwalaan niya kaming i-share yung kuwento niya sa amin.”
StarStruck Survivor Mark Herras plays the role of June Abrazado, while fellow almunus Vaness del Moral plays the role of June’s wife. Directed by Rico Gutierrez and Lem Lorca, Bingit premieres September 21 after Startalk on GMA-7.
