GB Sampedro directs ‘5-IN-1,’ a Vivamax original that combines wit, drama, excitement and the right amount of sex streaming on Sept. 23
In the story, a handsome gentleman, a certified chick magnet, and a successful businessman and CEO of a famous coffee brand, 5-in-1 coffee, John “Dick” Jordi (Wilbert Ross) has it all and can have everything he wants. Including having five girlfriends – Mia (Debbie Garcia), Lexie (Rose van Ginkel), Maria (Ava Mendez), Riley Red (Angela Morena), and Lana Rose (Jela Cuenca).
But despite his seemingly perfect life, fate does a playful trick on him after his life is cut short due to an illness, he kept to himself. His sudden demise brings shock and heartbreak, not just to his girlfriends but also to his nun sister, Sister Teresa (Giselle Sanchez).
Due to his untimely passing, Dick’s coffee business is left unmanaged. It becomes a problem for Sister Teresa for she has no idea who among the five girlfriends Dick is most in love with and deserves to be the new CEO of 5-in-1 coffee.
She comes up with the idea of letting the women give a eulogy for his brother, and with their stories, she’ll be able to determine who among them is “The One” and the new rightful owner of 5-in-1 coffee. As these women celebrate Dick’s life and remember their time with him, they will share whimsical and colorful narratives and even their sexual experiences with Dick.

Sad state of TV viewing
WHAT used to be a viewing habit ceased to be one when Jun Banaag’s teleprogram is aired only on Saturday and Sunday. We feel a decline in viewership as the content turns spiritual. Mas bagay ang format sa radio or TV Maria na pawang replay ang ipinapalabas. We hardly hear the names of Gina Pareno, Dulce, Ta Betchang mentioned.
A saving grace we hope is the segment of Fatima Soriano and the followers of the program abroad.
Newscasters of the un-franchised network really knows how to look good and they dress well. Hindi sila tabain unlike a Kapuso newscaster na nasakop na ang buongTV screen ng kanyang kalusugan. Ditto with a field reporter na walang effect ang pagsusuot ng itim.. By REMY UMEREZ.
