PRESS STATEMENT FROM GMA-7:
"Tropang Potchi ushers in its fifth season by moving to a new station and a new timeslot, with a new format.
"Starting April 30, each episode follows a value-driven narrative that unfolds among the members of the Tropa in the spanking new Potchi house. Here, the kids learn how to deal with the different things they encounter in their young lives with the help of each other and their families. The Tropa also meets every Saturday at the Potchi house where they take turns exchanging stories about the different adventures they had from the previous week.
"This week, Lianne nurses a ’tampo’ over her OFW Mom’s refusal to buy her a laptop. Meanwhile, Bianca shares how she conquers her fear of fun rides as Julian narrates his first time to ’fly’.
’Tropang Potchi’ is a motley crew of kids with different talents and personalities namely, Julian Trono, Ella Cruz, Sabrina Man, Miggy Jimenez, Bianca Umali and Lianne Valentino.
"Produced by Columbia, the candy company, and GMA-7, Tropang Potchi airs every Saturday at 9:00-9:30 a.m. on GMA 7 beginning April 30. It is directed by award-winning TV director Louie Ignacio. Last year, Tropang Potchi was also one of the programs awarded the ANAK-TV seal."
