Some of the last controversial TV Network Transfers in the past were Claudine Barretto to GMA7, Angel Locsin to ABSCBN, Sharon Cuneta, Ogie Alcasid to TV5 and the likes. These artists used to be the primary stars of their respective networks. ON the other hand, Richard Gutierrez didnt renew his contract after 11 years of being a Kapuso artist.
Actually, Richard’s contract to GMA Network expired last May 28, 2013. And as what he told to press, he will have a long vacation doing too much work. Everyone knows this. Until last week, Annabelle Rama, Mother and Talent Manager of Richard Gutierrez tweeted a very interesting plot on when will Richard sign to GMA Network..
I remember when Richard was asked about his stay on GMA7, he mentioned “I can say na I lived a full career in GMA Network, and I think now is the right time for me to step back, assess myself, see where I want to be and let’s see… I’m not closing my doors on anything.”
GMA NETWORK on the other hand issued an statement, to wit,
“The exclusive television contract of Richard Gutierrez with GMA Network expired on May 28, 2013.
“As mutually agreed upon by both parties, Richard is now a freelance actor for television and still has a live contract with GMA Films.
“We thank him for the 11 years of being an exclusive Kapuso and wish him well in his future endeavors.”
Annabelle Rama also mentioned that they will announced future engagement of Richard Gutierrez on January 21st 2014.
Will he transfer to ABSCBN or TV5? Or will stay on GMA7. Lets find out!
