CEBU, Philippines - Introducing Pepito Manaloto, the first-ever reality sitcom that will make Saturday night primetime more fun and totally hilarious beginning March 20.

Pepito Manaloto is an original concept of one of GMA7’s prime comedians, creative director and Asian TV Awards three-time best comedy actor recipient Michael V, who will portray the amusing character of Pepito Manaloto.

Joining Michael V in this one-of-a-kind program are Carmina Villarroel, Manilyn Reynes, Ronnie Henares, John Fier and Joshua Pineda with the special participation of veteran actor Freddie Webb.

Under the direction of well-respected director Bert de Leon, this side-splitting reality-sitcom tells the almost true-to-life story of Pepito Manaloto (Michael V), a poor man who simply dreams of providing a comfortable life for his wife Elsa (Manilyn Reynes) and only son Jonjon (Joshua Pineda). He is a cool and a trustworthy friend for his best friend Patrick (John Fier).

Little did Pepito know that his simple and underprivileged life significantly changes when he becomes the lone winner of 700 million pesos in the national lottery!

The new multimillionaire then meets Maricar (Carmina Villarroel), 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 Henares) who will end up being 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 in situations, places and everything that are new to them will surely keep the viewers laughing.

Welcome Pepito Manaloto into your home beginning March 20 after Pinoy Records on GMA Network’s Sabado Star Power.
