From the TV5 website:
“American Idol star David Archuleta is scheduled to arrive in Manila on Jan. 13 to do a primetime series for TV5 with homegrown Kapatid stars Jasmin Curtis Smith and Eula Caballero.”
Who is TV5? Currently the third-largest broadcasting network in the Philippines. According to InterAksyon.com:
“Archuleta’s joining TV5 comes from left field, however. The signing of an international star of Archuleta’s youth and talent, arguably in his prime, is bound to shake up the Philippine entertainment industry.” Full news story HERE.
