The first Philippine TV Show that was franchised overseas was Eat Bulaga after Indonesia’s SCTV network acquired the popular variety show which premiered in Indonesia last July 16, 2012.
It was SCTV who first approached them, said Malou Choa-Fagar, senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Television and Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE Inc.) Program director Harsiwi Achmad has been watching the show on Youtube before moving to SCTV. Achmad contacted Marketing Creative Service Advisor, Gerry C. Guzman, who became the medium for the SCTV and TAPE executives. Kebon Jeruk, Director of Programs and Production at Studio Penta SCTV, became interested and agreed too.
The program airs at 4:00PM (Indonesian Time) as an afternoon show.
