Hi-5 Philippines takes over other edutainment programs with an all-Filipino cast

The one tv show that I love to watch with my grandson Finn is Hi-5, the award-winning Australian children's edutainment program from a cable channel. It is entertaining, educational and fun. He learns how to dance and sing with the Hi-5 cast.  The educational fun tv show for kids focus on music and movement that attracts children's attention. Hi-5 caters to a wide range of young children which tap their cognitive abilities and learning styles.

The good news is TV5 launches Hi-5 Philippines, a local version of the award-winning Australian children’s edutainment program last June 11 at TV5 studio.  The Hi-5 Philippines features an all-Filipino cast, a first for the series of franchise in Asia. The Hi-5 members are  Gerard Pagunsan, Aira Binas, Rissey Reyes, Alex Reyes, and Fred Lo, sets to bring a Hi-5 House Party in every household with their talent and interaction with kids in both English and Filipino.

A more exciting and fun-filled learning experience awaits kids and their parents as TV5  will start airing on weekdays at 8:30 a.m. starting June 15.

 The dynamic new quintet all boast of extensive backgrounds in performing arts and will now channel that energy to engage kids in music, imaginative play, social interaction, and developmental growth in a fun way.

“With Hi-5 Philippines, we are very excited to bring the world-class edutainment experience closer to more Filipino kids. This is our way of not only showcasing world-class Filipino talent, but more importantly, helping shape our country’s future generations,” said Noel Lorenzana, TV5 president and CEO.

“We are proud to partner with Hi-5 World in introducing to millions of Filipino kids a local version of this highly interactive edutainment show. We are up to the challenge of producing the show that is at par with global standards,” said Jane Basas, Media 5 Corporation president.

Launched in Australia in 1999, Hi-5 rapidly grew in popularity over the years. It has won three Logie Awards for Most Outstanding Children's Program, five ARIA Awards for Best Children's Album and five Australian DVD and Video Industry Awards, among other achievements. It was then that Hi-5 started expanding its reach by franchising the show across North America, Europe, Australasia, Latin America, and Asia.

However, this is the first time that the Hi-5 franchise assembled an entirely new cast for the localization of the show in Asia. The Filipino version of the musical group is currently one of the only two casts for Hi-5, the other one being the Australian cast.

Watch how the Hi-5 gang of Gerard, Aira, Rissy, Alex and Fred makes learning exciting and fun for kids through songs and dancing. Don’t miss Hi-5 Philippines, airing weekdays at 8:30 a.m. starting June 15, only on TV5.
