Eat Bulaga went International - Franchise sealed by Indonesian Network SCTV



Eat Bulaga, the longest running running noon time show in the Philippines sealed a franchise deal to Surya Citra Televisi (SCTV) of Indonesia.

The Indonesian version of "Eat Bulaga!," which bears the same title, officially premiered on July 16.

The Indonesian version will showcase similar format on entertainment, games, prizes, and inspiration. Equivalent segments such as "Indonesia Pintar" ("Pinoy Henyo"),"One For All, All For One," "Bolagaan," and "Karaoke Stud" are also part of the show. One of the original show's core hosts, "Bossing" Vic Sotto, also has his Indonesian counterpart: Uya Kuya, who is called "Boss Uya."

Even the "dabarkads"-the collective term for the "EB" hosts-has an equivalent in the Indonesian show: "bulagang." A post on popular blog site quoted Achmad as saying, "We want this program to be a success like in the Philippines, where it has been running for the past 33 years."

He also noted that they are not adapting the Philippine version 100% but will "format in accordance with the state and introduce positive values, environmental campaigns, and sharing with others."

Joining Uya Kuya as host of "EB" Indonesia are Aja Farid, Reza No, Ramzi, Narji, Ciripa, Rian Ibram, Rio Indrawan, Steven, Leo Consul, Selena Alexandria, Jenny Tan, Bianca Lizza, and Julie Christie.

Original "EB" producer and TAPE Inc. big boss Tony Tuviera is proud and thrilled over the historical achievement of the show.

"Today marks another milestone for 'Eat Bulaga' as the first international franchise of our show will be launched at 4 p.m. in Indonesia...," he was quoted as saying in a statement.
