I caught a test broadcast of GMA network’s new channel, QTV ““ Quality TV. QTV will soon be available over antenna-TV channel 11. I guess this will be the ka-puso’s counterpart of Studio 23.
In the test broadcast, I saw trailers of various locally-produced TV shows of QTV.
They had this trailer where this doll turned into a life-size robot. Reminds me of that American show “œLittle Wonder” of the late 80’s. Another show features make-overs for housewives ata. Amusing this Melanie Marquez when she says “œIt’s not your problem anymore. It’s our problem anymore!”
There’s a show with a group of 6 or 8 culinary experts. Title was something like “œka-toque” and they promise to whip up some sumptous meals at different households, I gather.
There’s this one that looks interesting. A group of four doctors, making house calls and discussing local medical cases and their diagnoses. Sounds educational, sounds beneficial for Filipinos. Hope they can package it in a way that it gains popularity especially to those who need this kind of health information.
I see they have a line-up of comedies, shows for women/housewives, health, advise etc. Ano pa ba ang mga nakita kong trailers?…
In all, I think QTV will have programs that are more thematically and audience-focused. They’re finding another venue (another channel altogether!) where they do not need to go by the proven formula for success: international soap-operas (espanyol nobela, chinobela, koreanobela, indinobela, crapnobela) or local fantasy-soaps.
Goodluck to QTV. Hope you stick to your title and serve some Quality shows for the Filipinos.
