Television: Futbolilits

"Futbolilits" head written by Aloy AdlawanBeginning Monday (July 4), GMA Network brings to Primetime TV another original family drama series about a one man’s quest to lead a group of kids from being a ragtag bunch to becoming a league of football champions called FUTBOLILITS.

This latest Telebabad offering not only captures the emotion and excitement that comes into the colorful world of football but also introduces the next generation of kid superstars who will spice up the viewing experience of the Filipinos, adults and kids alike.

Leading the cast is action star-turned-comedian-turned-celebrity dad Raymart Santiago who plays Frankie, an exceptional football player who will experience a huge blow to his career and life in general when he loses his wife and son to a natural calamity.

After the accident, Frankie lives for years as a depressive recluse, a vagrant who turns his once flourishing profession into a forgotten memory. He cuts off all contact with his peers, and all he wanted is to spend the darkest days of his life in solitary confinement.

Forsaking everything he once knew, Frankie’s wretched life turns upside down when meets a team of budding footballers who gets beaten and mocked for their lack of proper training and experience. With the prodding of the kids, Frankie restarts his career in football, this time as the coach of the underdog team known as Futbolilits.

That’s a press release from GMA-7, and I’m promoting the show here because I’m part of it.

Yes, I’m doing another shameless promotion on my blog. But more than that, I really believe in this show, and I think many would enjoy watching it. So, if you’re in the Philippines, I hope you do watch and enjoy the program.

And that’s pretty much all I’m saying about it. Well, that and the schedule. It airs weekdays, at around 5:45 in the afternoon, before the evening news begin.
