Kano Luvs Pinay To Fill Void Left By Misterless Misis

TV5 didn’t waste any time creating a new sitcom after ‘Misterless Misis’ was shelved.

Enter ‘Kano Luvs Pinay’, a new concept which focuses on the complex, colorful and exciting world of intercultural relationships. As the title suggests, it will be a story of a Filipina who fell in love with an American man via a dating website.

The sitcom will star Filipina comedienne Tuesday Vargas and American actor Lee O’Brian. O’Brian is no stranger to real-life interracial romance, having fell in love with ABS-CBN’s resident comedienne Pokwang, his co-star in the movie ‘EDSA Woolworth’.

Joining Tuesday and Lee on the sitcom are Wilma Doesnt, Kiki Baento, Martin Escudero, Eula Caballero, Boboy Garovillo, Ces Quesada, and Cho Chok Venida. ‘Kano Luvs Pinay’ is based on a 2013 Cine Filipino entry ‘Ang Turkey Man ay Pabo Rin’, whose director, Randolf Longjas, will also be at the helm of the new sitcom.

The entry of ‘Kano Luvs Pinay’ comes at a period of change for TV5, which underwent employee retrenchment and realignment of programming, among other reasons. The series is also created to fill the void left by ‘Misterless Misis’, which was shelved after only two episodes just for the said realignment.

It will be interesting to see how the recent changes on TV5 will affect ‘Kano Luvs Pinay’. One can only hope that the new sitcom will not suffer the same fate as ‘Misterless Misis’.

Produced by TV5 and Unitel Productions, ‘Kano Luvs Pinay’ airs starting this Saturday at 9:00 p.m. on TV5.

    The TV5 webshows Tanods and Jinrilationships with Jinri Park will be aired back-to-back on Sundays at 9 and 9:30 pm starting September 6. At least we will still see Jinri Park on TV5 after KisPinoy was axed.

    • Those shows will fill in for Misterless Misis while it’s on hiatus (we presume), so it’s just a temporary solution.

      As for Kano Luvs Pinay, let’s just hope that it won’t suffer the same fate as Misterless Misis. We know TV5 is trying to adjust its programming, so it’s up to them to tweak while they still can, and hopefully not cause harm to some of their programs.

    Saturday primetime purely dominated by shows under TV5’s content providers, while Sundays are station-produced programming. Good luck to KLP, another fairytale love story to unfold.

    If Tanods and Jinrilationships do well on the Sunday time slot, then maybe it’s likely that Misterless Misis will be gone. Those two shows will be a better match to KMJS and To The Top of GMA and Your Face Sounds Familiar and Rated K on ABS.
