For almost 15 years, Wendell Ramos spent his career in Kapuso Network. He was handled by late Douglas Quijano. For fifteen years the actor didn’t have any contract because according to him his manager then didn’t believe in contracts.
Recently the actor was reported to be one of the new talents of PPL Entertainment Inc. managed by Perry Lansigan. And as a new manager, he tried to open him up for other networks. Fortunately TV5 got interested to him. The negotiation between Perry and TV5 just took two weeks to be settled. According to the actor it was easy because he doesn’t have contract with GMA.
The actor and GMA7 executive Marivin Arayata talked about it and even tried to hold him back and as much as possible they don’t want him to leave, but he said he already made up his mind. In the end GMA7 executive agreed and wished him luck. He thanked the management for the past 15 years of being a Kapuso. He is sad that he has to sacrifice his shows in GMA, especially Bubble Gang to be able to cross stations.
Last Sunday, March 13, on Paparazzi, Wendell was officially introduced as the newest Kapatid on TV5. Wendell admitted that one of the reasons why he switched is the security of his career. He thinks that in TV5 his career is secured because of the contract. He is obliged to work for the network at the same time the network is obliged to give him work which is what he wants.
In his first two years in TV5 he is expected to do two TV soaps, one sitcom and a musical show. He is not sure if he’s also going to do a movie for the sister company of the network.
