TV5 brings back its beloved and legacy program, Face 2 Face, providing daily doses of juicy controversies and gossip, making it a favorite amongst the “Mariteses of the Philippines.”
Just like the original version, Face 2 Face, which premiered yesterday on TV5 and One PH, is serving as a virtual “barangay hall on air,” where viewers can tune in to hear the latest buzz and witness heated discussions on various issues.
Evolving with the changing times, the 2023 reboot presents the new duo of Karla Estrada and Alex Calleja as hosts and mediators in resolving the heated rivalries of the show’s guests and diffusing the escalating tension in each episode.
During the show’s press conference, Karla emphasized the importance of imparting valuable lessons to viewers through the television program. She said that entertainment alone is not enough and that there should be a purpose behind the content being produced.
The actress and host also believes that their show should strive to leave a lasting impact on the audience by extending beyond the entertainment factor.
Face 2 Face gives a fresh take on the popular talk show’s format with its new mantra, “Isyu ay harapin, huwag palakihin” as it features real people with real problems and finds the best possible resolution to their conflicts.
Ready to help resolve these issues are the show’s resident Trio Tagapayo – “Dr. Love” Bro. Jun Banaag representing the clergy, Atty. Lorna Kapunan giving legal advice, and Dr. Camille Garcia sharing her perspectives as a psychologist.
This new Face 2 Face covers a wide range of topics, from family relationships to personal struggles and triumphs, all with a goal of inspiring empathy and understanding between the conflicting parties.
With Karla’s motherly compassion and Alex’s quick wit, they make an interesting tandem whose teamwork can help diffuse tension in the studio.
Face 2 Face airs from Monday to Friday at 11:00 a.m. on TV5, and 8:00 p.m. on One PH, available on Cignal Ch. 1, SatLite Ch. 1, and Cignal Play. For further details and updates, visit the official social media pages of TV5.
