This first ever reality-sitcom will definitely keep you laughing as Pepito and his family continue to discover new and fascinating things about the lifestyles of the rich and extremely lucky!
Pepito Manaloto is the first ever reality–sitcom of GMA.
Portraying the amusing character of Pepito Manaloto is Asian TV Awards three-time best comedy actor, Michael V., who also conceptualized the story. Joining him in this one-of-a-kind program are Carmina Villaroel, Manilyn Reynes, Ronnie Henares, John Feir, and Joshua Pineda, with the special participation of veteran actor Freddie Webb.
Under the direction of Bert de Leon, this side-splitting reality-sitcom tells the story of Pepito Manaloto, a poor man who simply dreams of providing a comfortable life for his wife Elsa (Manilyn) and only son Jonjon (Joshua). He is a cool and trustworthy friend for his best friend Patrick (John). Just like everyone, Pepito dreams of becoming rich and famous. He dreams of winning the lottery and become an instant millionaire someday. So he religiously bets in the national lottery hoping his dreams will come true. Little did Pepito know that his simple and underprivileged life will significantly change when he becomes the lone winner of Php700 million in the national lottery!
The new multi-millionaire then meets Maricar (Carmina), an alluring and sophisticated woman who volunteers to manage Pepito's new found wealth. Pepito's new assistant will also introduce him to the glamorous world of the rich and famous.
But who is Maricar? Can Pepito really trust this beautiful stranger? And what will be Pepito's relation to financial analyst Tommy Diones (Ronnie) who will end up as the multimillionaire's enemy?
Undoubtedly, many Filipinos can relate to Pepito's sudden reversal of fortune. Pinoys would certainly desire Pepito's rags-to-riches story. But what does an instant multimillionaire do with his newly acquired wealth? Can Pepito handle the instant fame and fortune? Can they stand and live up to the glamorous lifestyle of the elite? The hilarious reactions of Pepito and his family to the situations, places, and everything that are new to them will surely keep the viewers laughing.
Welcome Pepito Manaloto into your home every Sunday after 24 Oras Weekend.
