Viewers can look forward to various marathons from Studio 23 during Holy Week.

Holy Week arrives with a lot of goodies from your Kabarkada network, Studio 23. Season favorites like 7th Heaven and Gilmore Girls fill up the schedule from Maundy Thursday (April 5) to Black Saturday (April 7) and the station even offers blockbuster movies for this season of reflection.

Two marathons of Studio 23's most family-friendly series are first on the list. The much-loved Lorelai and Rory of Gilmore Girls kick-off Maundy Thursday with 10 consecutive episodes from its current season starting 11a.m. Kevin Kline and Kenneth Branagh add to the fun at 6:30 as they provide character voices in the animated treat The Road to El Dorado. And we cap the night with Tom Hanks' award-winning turn in the feel-good movie Forrest Gump at 8 p.m.

Holy Week on Studio 23 won't be complete without the Camdens of 7th Heaven, back on board for a nine-episode marathon on Good Friday starting at 11:00 a.m. Oscar-winner The Ten Commandments takes center stage at 6:30 p.m. as the Cecille B. DeMille classic brings to life the life of the prophet Moses (Charlton Heston).

Black Saturday lightens up a bit as the Camdens barkada continue their adventures on a twelve-episode marathon starting at 10 a.m. The Mel Gibson-voiced claymation blockbuster Chicken Run kicks off primetime at 7:30 PM. Studio 23 caps the night with Jack Nicholson and Helen Hunt in their award-winning turns for the movie As Good As It Getson Barkada Nights at 9:15 p.m.
