Comedian and TV host Willie Revillame announced via video that a new and bigger studio is now being constructed for his “Wowowin” game show in the Kapuso network.
Willie, in the video posted on YouTube, said this will allow “Wowowin” to accommodate a bigger live audience, who are also the contestants in the different games of the show. It often attracts foreign tourists and balikbayans who want to experience firsthand what they are watching in their cable channels abroad. They usually take the front seats.
“Ito po ang regalo natin sa buong mundo, para po sa mga Pilipino, kakababayan natin, mahal nating mga Kapuso, ito po ay ginawa para sa inyo,” Willie said as he ended the video tour of the studio being constructed.
Its completion is being rushed in time for the start of what he promised as a revitalized game show at the end of the month. “Spetember 30 po ang bagong ‘Wowowin’,” Willie said.
The studio, he added, is on a par with world standards: “Pudeng ipanlaban sa buong mudo!”
He commented that the new studio is bigger, more spacious and more comfortable.
“Wowowin” is being aired from Monday to Friday at 5 p.m. It is under Willie’s WBR Entertainment Productions, Inc., which is a blocktimer on GMA Network.
The program premiered as a Sunday game show on GMA after Willie left rival network ABS-CBN in 2015. Less than a year later, it moved to the primetime afternoon slot of the Kapuso network.
