David Archuleta to do teleserye on TV5

American Idol finalist David Archuleta will be doing a primetime teleserye (TV series) on TV5.

Members of its cast include Jasmine Curtis and Eula Caballero. David will be arriving in the Philippines on January 13, 2012. The move is still part of TV5’s campaign to climb up the rankings as it is currently the third biggest broadcasting network in the Philippines, next to GMA-7 and ABS-CBN.

Over the last two years, the Kapatid network has signed some of the Philippines’ biggest stars — Nora Aunor, Sharon Cuneta, Dolphy, Maricel Soriano, Aga Muhlach, Lorna Tolentino, Edu Manzano, Vic Sotto, and Joey de Leon.
