How far will you go for your family and for the woman you love?
For Conan, he would do anything—even pretend to be gay and work in a beauty salon.
GMA Public Affairs proudly presents Conan My Beautician, the newest comedy series that promises to be part of the Filipino family’s Sunday viewing habit.
Premiering this afternoon, Conan My Beautician sees the refreshing tandem of Kapuso actor Mark Herras and 2013 Ms. World Megan Young.
Coming from a family of talented barbers, Conan is played by Mark, a straight guy who is forced to work in a beauty salon in Manila after his family is forced to escape from their hometown and his mother is hospitalized.
While on the outside he projects the vivacious and most talented beautician at Salon Paz, Conan remains a straight guy inside. In fact, he soon finds himself falling in love with Ava. Conan My Beautician is expected to reveal further the versatility of Mark, Starstruck’s first-ever Ultimate Male Survivor. This will be the first time Mark is playing a sensitive role and while he admits that he is still getting used to the idea, he is nonetheless grateful that he is given a very challenging show where he is the lead actor.
“Sobra po akong nagpapasalamat, especially sa GMA for trusting me once again na ipakita ‘yung kaya kong ipakita and after a very very long time, ngayong lang ulit ako nabigyan ng role na talagang iikot ‘yung story sa akin,” Mark shared.
For Megan, who is also a Starstruck alumna, Conan My Beautician will be her first foray in comedy.
“I don’t think I remember doing a comedy [show] ever in my whole career so that’s a big thing for me. It’s exciting, it’s fun, and I’m looking very much forward to it,” Megan said.
Completing the stellar cast of Conan My Beautician are today’s most talented comedians –Cacai Bautista, Jerald Napoles, Betong Sumaya, Boobsie, Tetay, Vangie Labalan, Lotlot De Leon, Jay Manalo, Chlaui Malayao, Antonette Garcia, and Balang.
Directed by Adolf Alix, Jr. with Rember Gelera, and penned by award-winning writers headed by Rody Vera with Zig Dulay, Eljay Deldoc, Michael Cardoz, and Jerome Zamora, this riot of a comedy from GMA Public Affairs airs every Sunday on GMA at 5 p.m. beginning today.
Sing Philippines Youth Choir in ‘Art 2 Art’
The Sing Philippines Youth Choir (SPYC) that recently serenaded LRT 2 commuters with a musical flash mob will be featured in Art 2 Art today.
The episode airs 3:30-4 p.m. on radio via DZRH (666 khz on the AM band), on cable television via RHTV (Channel 18 on Cignal Cable) and online live streaming at http://dzrhnewstelevision.tv. The show may also be viewed through the Facebook account DZRH News Television.
Chinggay Bernardo, manager of the Cultural Center of the Philippines Cultural Exchange Department, tells Art 2 Art host Lisa Macuja how the flash mob came about. Apparently, it was part of a music camp organized by Bernardo’s department and the Philippine Madrigal Singers (MADZ) in May.
Music camp participants, selected among applicants from the provinces and Metro Manila, formed the second batch of the choir. They also performed in a concert at the CCP on June 5 as a culminating activity.
In the Art 2 Art episode, SPYC representatives Miggi Angangco and Pauline Arejola share their experiences at the music camp. Other members in performing Why I Sing join them later.
Art 2 Art is produced by the Manila Broadcasting Company.
