HSBC Philippines

ABS-CBN’s noontime show “It’s Showtime” is expanding to its first international franchise in Indonesia.

Media company MNCTV will bring to Indonesian television audiences their version of the top-rating local TV show.

On air for 9 years in Philippine television, It’s Showtime recently received the Silver Play Button Award from YouTube.

On March 16, MNCTV posted on social media a lyric video of the opening theme of “It’s Showtime” in Bahasa language.

Its Showtime’ Executive Producer Peter Edward Dizon and host Vice Ganda have confirmed the franchise transaction between the two networks. Segments on the Indonesian version have yet to be announced.

Airing Mondays to Saturdays on ABS-CBN, “It’s Showtime” is the second Philippine noontime variety show to be franchised in Indonesia.

In 2012, TAPE’s “Eat Bulaga” airing on GMA-7 became the first noontime show from the Philippines to be franchised and shown in Indonesia. “Eat Bulaga! Indonesia” aired from 2012 to 2014 in SCTV, and from 2014 to 2016 in ANTV.
