Ogie Alcasid can now be considered the busiest and luckiest Kapatid star. Aside from an executive position - TV5’s Music Business Unit Head - the OPM President is also set to lead the cast of 3 newest TV5 shows.
The singer-songwriter will star in TV5's upcoming Saturday night musical-variety show "The Mega and the Songwriter" with the Megastar Sharon Cuneta. Directed by Bert de Leon, the show is set to air weekly starting September 14 at 9 p.m.
As a true-blooded comedian himself, Ogie will also join the cast of Sunday noontime gag-show "Lokomomo U" with former Tropang Trumpo co-star Gelli de Belen.
And yes, Ogie can also do drama. The actor will soon start taping for his daily primetime soap entitled "The Gift" under the direction of Mike Tuviera. Ogie will be joined by TV5 drama princess Nadine Samonte and newest child star Joshen Bernardo. The show will have a tentative airing date this October.
