TV5 to Air Its First Teleserye 'My Driver Sweet Lover'

Encouraged by the success of its initial set of drama show '5 Star Presents', TV5 will launch its first daily teleserye titled 'My Driver Sweet Lover' on Monday, October 25.

My Driver Sweet Lover (My DSL for short) is a romance-comedy series featuring JC de Vera and singer Danita Paner.

"We at TV5 thought it would take us another two years before we could mount a massive production for a daily TV series," TV5 head of creative and entertainment production Perci M. Intalan told reporters last week. "But after we saw how [quickly] TV5 has grown in recent months, we became more confident that we can join the big networks and come up with our own series."

But instead of producing a drama series, TV5 chose to break with tradition by offering light comedy fare for its first venture. "We trust that we�re in the right direction because we�ve got a great story to tell, and powerhouse cast and crew," Mr. Intalan said.

"TV5 has started winning weekends [in the ratings race]. Now we�re making our weeknight programming more exciting."

Directed by Soxie Topacio and Eric Quizon, My DSL is the story of a charming jeepney driver (JC de Vera) and a bratty hotel heiress (Danita Paner) who initially do not like each other. It has an all-star cast which includes Richard Gomez, Dina Bonnevie, Eddie Gutierrez, Pilita Corrales, Nova Villa, Yayo Aguila, Epi Quizon, Ruby Rodriguez, Arci Mu�oz, Ramon Christopher, and Keempee de Leon.

My DSL will air weeknights at 10:30 p.m.
