Kapatid barangay challenge

(The Philippine Star) - November 27, 2015 - 9:00am

MANILA, Philippines – TV5 brings to Filipino viewers Barangay Utakan, the first news quiz show on Philippine TV that features contestants from different barangays or communities to find out who’s the most “news savvy” of them all. The Kapatid network’s newest offering promises an hour of infotainment that the young and old alike will find appealing as each barangay team tries to outwit or “out-think” the competition in answering questions on current news and events from country’s leading digital influencers.

Headlining Barangay Utakan are Internet celebrity and academician Ramon Bautista; Politics for Beginners host, satirist Jun “Bayaw” Sabayton; and newsman and Palanca awardee Lourd de Veyra. Utakan is a quiz show wherein all questions are news related, so players should be aware of current news. There will be elimination rounds and questions would increase in difficulty as the quiz show progresses; but as the program’s title suggests, the team that is more “ma-utak” (brainy) and “madiskarte” (street-mart) gets to bring home the top prize — which in this case are goods and/or services that will benefit the whole community like basketball court refurbishing, computer units for the barangay hall, barangay medical missions and the like.

Barangay Utakan is the first news game show in Philippine TV wherein participants play for barangay pride. Winners get to bring home benefits for the entire community to use or enjoy. In a sense, it represents the brotherhood and sisterhood that characterize the Pinoy’s bayanihan spirit.

Barangay Utakan’s pilot episode airs tomorrow, Nov. 29 (Sunday night) on TV5.
