Wilma Galvante's Funniest Isteytments Ever!!

MANILA, Philippines—“We wanted ‘Philippine Idol’ on our own terms, or not at all. We were only willing to buy ‘Idol’ and not any other [Fremantle] programs or formats packaged with it. [Fremantle] has apparently found what they think is a better deal.”

ABC 5, through senior vice president for Corporate Affairs Terra Daffon, on Tuesday issued this statement about the looming transfer of “Philippine Idol” to GMA 7.

Geraldine Bravo, director of Marketing and Sales for FremantleMedia (“Idol” franchise holder), told Inquirer Entertainment that GMA 7 “[has] licensed other [Fremantle] shows like ‘Celebrity Duets,’ ‘Whammy’ and ‘Family Feud.’”

Daffon retorted: “GMA 7 was in a position to make a better offer. It’s a giant. We’re just Jack trying to climb the beanstalk.”

She recounted that ABC 5 had been “the first to produce local versions of foreign formats”—including Fremantle game shows “Family Feud” and “Price is Right” and King World’s “Wheel of Fortune” in 2001.

Daffon added: “The Philippines has become a lucrative market for format franchising since Pearson/Fremantle targeted Asia for its expansive drive in the 1990s and early 2000.”

ABC 5 must be doing something right, she said, “because GMA 7, which until recently said no to franchises, turned around and went after ‘Idol.’”:lol:
Daffon pointed out that, in a 2006 interview with the Inquirer, Wilma Galvante, GMA 7 senior vice president for entertainment TV, claimed that the network didn’t need “to buy [a foreign franchise and] to get other people’s ideas.”:lol:
Must-have show

Sought for comment, Galvante said: “I’m not going back on my word. What I meant then was copying foreign franchises 100 percent, without making adjustments to entertain local viewers.”:lol: :bop:

Daffon asserted: “ABC 5 will always have the distinction of … having mounted a highly successful, world-class RP ‘Idol’ which was roundly praised even by Fremantle. For covetous local TV, it became the must-have show.”

Daffon expressed sadness over the rumor that GMA 7 would consider its second season as the first RP “Idol.”

“Too bad for [season one champ] Mau, who has huge talent.”

New battlefront

Daffon observed: “There’s a new battlefront for the two giants: Franchises. ABS-CBN has Endemol and GMA has Fremantle.”

A Kapuso insider earlier said that ABS-CBN is positioning its Endemol talent search “Pinoy Dream Academy” to go on a head-on collision with GMA 7’s RP “Idol” in February 2008.

    1970s

    . During Martial Law, Ferdinand Marcos ordered the closure of all but three television stations: channels 9 and 13 were eventually controlled by then Ambassador Roberto Benedicto, and Bob Stewart’s Channel 7 was later allowed to operate with limited three-month permits.

    . ABS-CBN was seized from the Lopez family, and Eugenio Lopez Jr., then president of the network, was imprisoned.
    In 1973, the Kapisanan ng mga Brodkaster sa Pilipinas (KBP) was organized to provide a mechanism for self-regulation in the broadcast industry.

    . Stewart was forced to cede majority control to Gilberto Duavit, a Malacañang official, and RBS reopened under new ownership, with a new format as GMA-7. When the smoke cleared, the viewer had channels 2, 9, 13, run by Benedicto; Duavit’s 7; and 4, which belonged to the Ministry of Information.

    . When DZXL-TV Channel 9 of CBN was sold to Roberto Benedicto, he changed the name from CBN to KBS, Kanlaon Broadcasting System. So when a fire destroyed the KBS television studios in Pasay, the people of Benedicto took over the ABS-CBN studios on Bohol Avenue, Quezon City. His employees moved in, and by August 1973, KBS was broadcasting on all ABS-CBN channels. A year later, Salvador “Buddy” Tan, general manager of KBS, reopened Channel 2 as the Banahaw Broadcasting Corporation (BBC). The two Benedicto stations--KBS Channel 9 and BBC Channel 2—mainly aired government propaganda.[/QUOTE]
