MULTI-PLATFORM CONTRACT FOR OGIE: It’s a multi-platform contract that he has signed, says returning Kapamilya Ogie Alcasid the day he met media to officially announce he is once again an ABS-CBN property. That means, he will be on TV, films, records, digital media and other platforms run by the network.
The singer-actor will be seen initially as one of the judges in Your Face Sounds Familiar: Kids Edition. The show will premiere in January 2017.
Ogie says it feels good to meet up once more with people he had worked with in the beginning of his career, which he says was a long time ago. ABS-CBN, he said, is a special place for him. It was through the network that he met and married his first wife, Miss Australia, Michelle Van Eimeren.
Ogie was cast as tourist guide to the Miss Universe candidates in the network’s coverage of the beauty pageant then.

BANANA SUNDAE, WHY NOT: Now that he has gone back to his TV roots, is there a chance that Ogie could be seen next as a regular on Banana Sundae?
Known as a comedian and writer of comedy acts on GMA’s Bubble Gang, Ogie said he’s not averse to the idea. Initially, he asked if Banana and Bubble air at the same time. Told that they don’t, he said he didn’t see any problem with that.
Ím sure my friends from Bubble Gang wouldn’t mind, and that they’d understand the situation,’ he said.’
Nevertheless, there has not been any offer towards that end, so why the fuss?
