Moreover, TV5’s new primetime block will now start with the newest barangay-serye on television, “Madam Chairman”, top-billed by no less than Megastar Sharon Cuneta herself and marking her first time ever to star in a teleserye.

Madam Chairman airs weeknights at 7:00pm.
Every night, viewers will surely be inspired with the quest of Ogie Alcasid in finding love and joy after a loss in the new drama series The Gift, which airs at 7:30pm.
Another first is Aga Muhlach’s foray in game show hosting as he introduces to Pinoys the fun-filled Let’s Ask Pilipinas, the local franchise of the US hit Let’s Ask America. Let’s Ask Pilipinas takes advantage of modern Internet technology as contestants get to play in the comforts of their home.

Positive bravely tackles the issue of the rising HIV cases in the country. It is a compelling drama where Martin Escudero plays the role of call center agent who, after being tested positive for HIV, goes on a life-changing journey through his past to trace the person who got him infected. For Love or Money, on the other hand, brings back heartthrob Derek Ramsay on television as he stars with TV5 drama princess Ritz Azul and timeless beauty Alice Dixson in a captivating story of love and sacrifice.
