Manny V. Pangilinan wanted the noontime show “Eat Bulaga!” to air on TV5 as early as a decade ago, TAPE Inc. chief financial officer Bullet Jalosjos has revealed.
In an interview with PEP.ph, an entertainment website controlled by the Gokongweis’ Summit Media and Felipe Gozon’s GMA Network, Jalosjos said Pangilinan saw great potential in the noontime show that he offered to buy it from the production firm.
TAPE Inc. produced “Eat Bulaga” for over four decades until Jalosjos and his family had a falling out with its long time hosts, led by Vic Sotto, Tito Sotto and Joey De Leon.
“It was negotiated na, ‘O, nandito na yung mga ibang talents mo. Can we invite Eat Bulaga! to already move to Channel 5?,'” Jalosjos said, recalling the lunch that his father, former Zamboanga Del Norte Rep. Romeo Jalosjos Sr., had with Pangilinan some 10 to 12 years ago.
“I cannot disclose, but it’s a really good amount. In fact, unbelievable amount,” Jalosjos said of Pangilinan’s offer, which he said his father rejected.
More than 10 years after the Jalosjos family rejected Pangilinan’s offer, the bilyonaryo has teamed up with the comedic trio known as TVJ to produce content for TV5 and other media platforms.
Tito said their new noontime show will also be called “Eat Bulaga,” and will feature the long-time hosts who joined them in leaving TAPE last month.
