TV5 in Dagupan

It all started when I responded to Pinoy Gossip Boy's tweet. He then forwarded my number to Lhot Jiz de Ortega of TV5. 

I met Lhot and Judy Dimayuga-Magdame of TV5 personally during a dinner which they sponsored at Silverio's. The dinner was attended by the local media and bloggers (Rhodora Montemayor Palinar, Allan "Dr. Heart" Sison, Freddie Fajardo and Mortz Ortigoza to name a few)

From L-R: Percival Intalan, Entertainment and Creative Production Head; Raul Dela Cruz; Provincial Operations Head; SiRVis, Bobby Barreiro, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer
I attended the TV5 Regional Launch Press conference the next day where I met the top honchos of the TV network. They discussed the TV network's plans for regional expansion specifically for Dagupan City and Pangasinan.

I was tweeting and live blogging during the presscon.  

I also asked Mr. Intalan, Entertainment and Creative Production Head about TV5's upcoming shows and if Aga Muchlach is transferring to TV5.  He replied that program offerings to expect in 2010 are Extreme Makeover Home Edition (a local adaptation of the huge international hit), remakes of TV and movie hits of the past decades ("Bagets", "Iskul Bukol", "Humanap Ka ng Panget", "P.S. I Love You", "Ang Utol kong Hoodlum" and "Babaeng Hampaslupa") and Komiks Novels by Carlo J. Caparas ("Bangis" and "Limang Daliri ng Diyos"). He however would not confirm or deny if Aga Muchlacjh is joining the Happy Network and to become a Kapatid. It would've been a big scoop for me. Abangan na lang daw.
