AFTER several months of fun-filled and heartwarming stories, GMA Network’s well-loved family sitcom “Pepito Manaloto: Kuwento, Kuwento” will air its season finale on May 29.
“Pepito Manaloto” has been a staple source of honest-to-goodness entertainment for many Filipino households since 2010. Through its well-rounded and value-laden plot and characters with whom viewers can easily resonate, the show has earned the nods of various award-winning bodies during its decade-long run.
The sitcom follows the rags-to-riches journey of an ordinary person, Pepito (Michael V.), who was blessed with extraordinary luck after winning the lottery. Together with his wife Elsa (Manilyn Reynes) and his children Clarissa (Angel Satsumi) and Chito (Jake Vargas), Pepito must maneuver the ins and outs of his family’s new reality as multi-millionaires, all while being documented by a camera crew for a TV show.
In its season finale, Elsa is invited as a feature baker at the Central Luzon Food Trade Expo in Pampanga. Pepito has been invited by the Philippine Embassy in Korea to speak at a business conference. While both prepare for their respective events, the whole household encounters a problem.
The TV crew who has been following them around is getting in their way. Even after almost a decade of sharing their lives with the viewing public, this time with the pandemic, it feels like their world has gotten more crowded.
When the producer of the TV reality show talks to Pepito, he wants to make plans for their new season. Will Pepito decide to move forward or move on?
