After Ogie Alcasid, is Judy Ann Santos the next big star to transfer to TV5?
The actress’ long-time manager Alfie Lorenzo told Yahoo! Philippines OMG! that after Judy Ann’s contract with ABS-CBN expired in July (2013), the Kapamilya network has not yet finished the draft of her new contract.
“So tinanong ko kung draft nga ba yon or drop,” Alfie explained. “Ang kailangan lang naman nilang palitan ay yung petsa.”
He also lamented how the timeslot of Judy Ann’s teleserye “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala” has been moved to accommodate Julia Montes' "Muling Buksan Ang Puso."
Now, “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala” is again poised to change its timeslot to give way to Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo’s “Got to Believe.” Reports also say “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala” will soon go off the air.
“Si Judy Ann hindi nagrereklamo,” Alfie added. “Kahit saang location siya dalhin, okay lang. Hindi rin siya nagpapa-package deal gaya ng iba diyan.”
He revealed that GMA 7 and TV5 have tempting offers for Judy Ann – like an episode in “Magpakailanman” and a project for TV5’s movie arm.
Alfie said he is slated to meet with TV5 big boss Manny V. Pangilinan next week.
“Hindi ko na hihintayin ang draft (of the ABS contract),” he added.
