Gina Lopez has come home.
After a controversial 10-month run as environment secretary, Lopez embarks on a new role, that of a television personality. Her 13-episode series, ‘G Diaries’, serves as a platform of her past experience, as she dives deep into the country’s most scenic locations while continuing to advocate environmental protection.
As previously mentioned, ‘G Diaries’ is a homecoming of sorts for Lopez. Prior to her stint as environment secretary, Lopez served a variety of roles within the ABS-CBN family, most notably as managing director of the Lingkod Kapamilya foundation.
In ‘G Diaries’, Lopez pays a visit into some of the country’s must-see attractions, and along the way she will meet new friends and talk about preserving the environment. According to Lopez herself,
“‘G Diaries’ seeks not only to entertain viewers and promote the Philippines as a majestic travel destination but also to inform and incite action, for everyone to be part of the collective effort to preserve the environment and bequeath it in its healthiest state to the next generation.”
All 13 episodes of ‘G Diaries’ will be directed by esteemed Hollywood director, producer and writer Wil Harper. The series will kick off with a signature prelude film featuring celebrities such as Sharon Cuneta, Eddie Garcia and Charo Santos-Concio.
While ‘G Diaries’ may be just another travel program, there is one aspect of the show that is worth looking at. Not only will viewers see some new destinations, but they will also look at the environmental and aesthetic aspect that each locale presents.
That said, awareness of one’s surroundings is put to a premium in this series. And for those who want to become environmentalists someday, this show is worth watching.
The premiere episode of ‘G Diaries’ will air this Sunday before ‘ASAP’, after which it will air every Saturday at 8:00 a.m. on ABS-CBN. The series will also be seen on Lifestyle Network and the ABS-CBN News Channel.

Knowledge Channel’s Mathdali (hosted by Robi Domingo) will take over the 8:00 am Saturday timeslot in two days without a reason publicly given, so the remaining episodes of The G Diaries will not be shown in free TV.
What? Gosh, this is an unexpected development.
G Diaries is not axed. It will be pushed half an hour late after MathDali (which I write and updated earlier) but before KB Family Weekend.
Well that was a premature announcement from Fuentes. It will be unfathomable for a planned travel series to be cancelled shortly after it began. Good thing ABS kept it around.
However, I wonder why ANC is not airing G Diaries as promised. Is it because the schedule is too loaded already? We’ll never know.
Could you make an album or compilation of the song featured in every episode. I really love hearing local songs since aside from good melody they also have a very meaningful lyrics.
Sorry I don’t take a look at music embedded on a particular program. I go after TV programs in general.
