NBC Universal Vice-President of Channels in Asia Pacific, Scott Mackenzie, opened the program by saying, “This family is showbiz royalty in the Philippines, yet many of the situations they face resemble everyday families’ challenges and this is what has made them popular with audiences in the Asian region. We share in their laughter, feel their pain and watch how they grow as individuals. Our viewers wanted more and now we are happy to usher in the second season of the show.”
