David recently signed a contract with TV5. He will do a primetime series for the Kapatid Network with actresses Jasmin Curtis-Smith and Eula Caballero. According to Cristi Fermin on “Paparazzi”, the details of the show such as the title and the time slot will soon be announced in a later date. In the said primetime series, David will play a love triangle role with Jasmin and Eula.
It seems like the Kapatid Network is working its best to climb up the rankings. It has spent a lot of money on acquiring big stars such as Sharon Cuneta, Willie Revillame, and Maricel Soriano. And now, they have an American Idol alumnus to help them with the ratings.
Meanwhile, David Archuleta earlier announced that he would be leaving the singing industry for a while to do a fulltime mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-day Saints.
“It’s not because someone told me that I’m supposed to do it, not because I no longer want to do music anymore, but it’s because of the feeling that I felt that I need to do next in my life. It’s just the same feeling that I’ve always followed, try to follow in my life. It’s the feeling that’s allowed me to have the opportunities I’ve had, the challenges I’ve had to overcome, and the blessings, too. I’ve learned to trust that feeling. I’ve learned that I need to answer when He calls. And that’s the reason I know that I need to do this in my life,” Archuleta said.
His Mormon mission is not yet set at this time but he revealed that it would be early this year.
