John Consulta embarks on a new mission as he hosts GMA Network’s newest true-crime anthology program Pinoy Crime Stories, which airs every Saturday, 4:45 p.m. beginning September 16.
Produced by the award-winning team of GMA Public Affairs, Pinoy Crime Stories features the most compelling and controversial crimes in the country such as online crimes, slavery, murders, robberies, trafficking, kidnapping, abductions, rapes, and many more.
Consulta is no stranger to crime stories. He has been at the helm of the police beat and other law-enforcement agencies such as the National Bureau of Investigation, Philippine Drug Enforcement Agency, and Bureau of Immigration. His bold disposition in delivering news and special reports for the past 15 years has enabled him to make ground-breaking and investigative reports. He is one of the hosts of GMA’s flagship documentary program I-Witness and one of GMA Integrated News’ senior correspondents.
“Here in Pinoy Crime Stories, we will focus on every case – from investigation to resolution. We will feature actual interviews with crime investigators, witnesses, suspects, and even victims. We will also have realistic dramatizations of each case discussed and examined in every episode,” Consulta shares.
For its pilot episode, Pinoy Crime Stories takes on the intriguing murder case of an 85-year-old woman who was found dead in her home in Paranaque last month. Her male helper was initially declared as a ”person of interest,” which placed him behind bars for one month, but was later discovered innocent upon the admission of two other female suspects with one of them even confessing her involvement in the crime to John Consulta.
Pinoy Crime Stories airs every Saturday beginning at 4:45 p.m. on GMA with a simulcast on Pinoy Hits. Viewers may also watch the livestream on GMA Public Affairs’ YouTube channel and Facebook page, and GMA Network and GMA Public Affairs TikTok account. Global Pinoys can watch it via GMA international channel GMA Pinoy TV.
