Unkabogable box-office star Vice Ganda started the year on a high note as he signed an exclusive contract with ABS-CBN on Monday (January 13) afternoon. “I feel so special with the opportunities the bosses are giving me.
I never thought of moving to other networks,” he said. According to the comedian, aside from hosting his own Sunday night talk show “Gandang Gabi Vice” and noontime show “It’s Showtime,” he will also do one or two movies this year. “I want to offer something new to the public. I want to do an action-comedy movie soon.” he said. Meanwhile, when asked if he demanded for a talent fee increase after his sold-out “I-Vice Ganda Mo ‘Ko Sa Araneta” concert last May and blockbuster movie “Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy” in December, Vice Ganda laughed then answered, “They just gave me what I deserved.”
Present during the signing were (L-R) ABS-CBN broadcast head Cory Vidanes, chairman Eugenio Lopez III, president and CEO Charo Santos–Concio, TV production head Laurenti Dyogi, and business unit head Deo Edrinal.
