Kiefer Ravena, PBA ballers to star in new sitcom
MANILA, Philippines – Reigning UAAP Most Valuable Player Kiefer Ravena along with PBA players Gary David, Willie Miller, and Beau Belga are set to star in a new TV5 sitcom called No Harm, No Foul, according to a post by Ravena on Instagram.
Actor Randy Santiago is said to be the director of the new show, and has already led a script-reading as shown in another post from Instagram user @tv5insider.
The date of the show’s airing is yet to be announced, but Ravena indicates in his post, which also features comedian Ogie Alcasid, that it will be very soon.
Ravena (Ateneo Blue Eagles), David (Meralco Bolts), Miller (Talk ’N Text Tropang Texters) and Belga (Rain or Shine Elasto Painters) are all known to be some of the more comical and easy-going ballers who love to joke around.
Ravena is known to be light-hearted during post-game interviews in the UAAP, while former two-time PBA MVP Miller frequently makes appearances in TV5’s other in-game shows, offering not only his insight about the game but comic relief as well.
David and Belga, on the other hand, are the usual jokers during their time with national men’s basketball team Gilas Pilipinas. David normally leads the post-practice wrap-up joke session where he tells the Gilas team and coaching staff a story with a hilarious punchline at centercourt before they officially end practice.
Basketball players entering show business is not uncommon in the Philippines. De La Salle Green Archer Jeron Teng made his acting debut as a guest character in ABS-CBN nightly series Got To Believe, which aired from late 2013 to early 2014.
While former two-time PBA MVP Benjie Paras has made a successful career for himself in showbiz after retiring from the PBA.
