GMA Network is delighted to announce that well-loved comedian and award-winning actress Pokwang is now a certified Kapuso after signing a contract on June 18, Friday.
Pokwang is known for her versatility on screen as seen on various TV programs and movies she starred in throughout the years. Her decision to become a Kapuso was driven by her passion to showcase her many talents and to grow more in the industry.
“There’s still a lot more I would want to accomplish as an artist, as a host. I want to share more of my experience through programs for viewers. I want to be able to continue my passions as an artist. I would like to immensely thank GMA for opening its doors for me.”
On top of her list of Kapuso artists she dreams to work with one day are Dingdong Dantes, Marian Rivera, Alden Richards, Barbie Forteza, Ai Ai delas Alas, Maine Mendoza and Dennis Trillo.
As she begins this new chapter in her showbiz career, the Filipino audience can expect no less from Pokwang: “Here at GMA, I feel like I’m back to where I belong and it’s really about delivering comedy. I’m just really happy right now.”
GMA Network executive vice president and chief financial officer Felipe S. Yalong is proud that more and more highly talented comedians are joining the Kapuso family.
“GMA is the home of the best female comedians. In addition to Pokwang, we have Ai Ai delas Alas and Eugene Domingo. Now we have Pokwang in our line-up, I suppose we expect a lot of comedy shows that might come up. Who knows, we can have the three in one possible sitcom. Nobody can beat now GMA as far as comedy is concerned. We have the good writers, the creative people behind it, and you have the people in front of the camera. What else can you ask for?” (PR)
