GMA Primetime King DINGDONG DANTES signs an exclusive 5-year contract with GMA yesterday (September 14) at the Manila Polo Club to end rumors of him transferring to another network.

The contract signing was witnessed by GMA Chairman and CEO Felipe L. Gozon, President and COO Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr., EVP and CFO Felipe S. Yalong, Entertainment TV OIC Lilybeth G. Rasonable and Dingdong’s manager Perry Lansigan. 

In October, Dingdong partners again with kapuso actress Rhian Ramos for a new primetime series called GENESIS.  The two last appeared together in the Philippine adaptation of the Korena series STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN.    

GENESIS is mainly a drama with a bit of science fiction (sci-fi).  In the story, a large asteroid is approaching Earth, endangering the lives of all of its inhabitants. But even before that happens, Earth is already on the brink of an apocalypse due to natural calamities. Chaos is everywhere and death tolls are rising. How people go about their business during these trying times is the pivot of the series.

Dingdong portrays a member of the Presidential Security Group (PSG) whose main mission is to protect the supreme leader of the land at all costs.  In his performance of his duty, he comes across danger brought about by crime and calamities.  

“Kasi dito sa Genesis napag-uusapan din yung mga corruption issues, it’s a struggle kung paano lumaban ng patas at tama sa kabila ng kaguluhan. Kaya narerelate din sa totoong buhay ang show na ito,” Dingdong said in an interview with GMANetwork.com.

GENESIS is set to air its pilot episode on October 14 on GMA Telebabad replacing MY HUSBAND’S LOVER.
