IN PHOTOS: Kris Aquino tapes new project, reveals air date
MANILA, Philippines (2ND UPDATE) – Kris Aquino is gearing up for a new travel special!
She began posting photos and videos of her taping for the show on Thursday, March 2, saying: "I'm nervous for this new project, new journey, new team to work with, new places to explore – but I'm prepared because my new steps are being taken wearing beautiful shoes."
Her next post was on March 3 of her and her team arriving and setting up at a hotel.
While Kris hasn't said on what network Trip Ni Kris will air, the multi-colored hearts and the rainbow emojis she included in her captions hint at the GMA Network.
Kris was signed to GMA's rival network ABS-CBN for 20 years before she left in 2016. She later interviewed young actress Maine Mendoza as part of a project with APT Entertainment Incorporated, a subsidiary of Television And Production Exponents Philippines (TAPE) Incorporated. Both APT and TAPE produce shows for GMA.
UPDATE: In an Instagram post uploaded on March 22, Kris said that Trip Ni Kris will air on April 9 at 10:30 pm on the GMA network. "To clarify, this is a one time, two hour travel and food exploration special with many interesting, happy people I got to interact with, and hopefully you will be entertained and inspired," she said.
On her Instagram posts so far, Kris has revealed that she visited Cabanatuan City and Minalungao National Park, both in Nueva Ecija.
On Saturday, she also started using the hashtag "#March262017," hinting at the project's air date.
In one of the videos' captions, Kris spoke about getting back into TV: "I missed this work, I missed meeting new people, and learning about their lives – most of all I missed the smiles that greeted me every time I was taping on location... My months away from TV work taught me to truly be grateful for today and thank God and thank all of you for the blessing of living and loving my life."
