Luis Manzano and Long Mejia’s online show “Luckyng Tulong” premiered on October 24. The episode was all about a friendship turning sour because of debt.
So far, people have given positive reviews based on the comments.
Luckyng Tulong is very similar to Raffy Tulfo’s Wanted sa Radyo and Idol in Action but has more of a goofy side to it. The hosts start off light then approach the issue a little more seriously as the arguments go on.
Manzano wants to feature issues that are more petty side of things.
“Gusto ko gumawa naman ng isang online show para sa mga tao na may medyo mababaw na problems.
“…hiniram yung sapatos niya, pagkabalik may amoy na. Nagmurahan rin sila harap-harapan ganun.” he said.
The show is able to get participants by email and with the help of a few “researchers.”
“May mga researchers kame. Nag e-email sila. Kaya pinagtatapat talaga namin sila,” Manzano told LionhearTV.
When choosing what to upload, regardless of when the episode was shot, the level of “impact” between participants is always the basis.
“Yung pinakamatinding impact lang siguro
“…Itong Saturday, eto yung pinakamalapit sa Face to Face at Tulfo. Yung pagkabukas palang ng isa, murahan na sila agad. Matindi! Murahan agad!” Manzano shared.
Much like other similar programs, Luckyng Tulong has a host and a co-host. Raffy Tulfo has a woman who helps in conversing with the participants while Manzano has Mejia.
The two have worked together before and Manzano described their relationship as perfect.
The latest episode is about an LGBTQ member getting played by what he thought was a potential lover.
Manzano is hoping the show will make it to television for more exposure.
“We’re hoping and praying na alam mo yun na may magustuhan, na let’s say producer o hindi kaya from ABS eh gumawa ng paraan na bigla na lang ipalabas kahit sa Kapamilya channel di ba? Malay natin,” he said.
In the event that happens, the content uploaded on YouTube will already be edited.
“Kung sakali man iba ang censorship on TV, iba on online. Kung sakasakali man may magpickup ng show, gagawa kame ng fairly sanitized version, tapos yung Director’s cut ang ilalagay namin sa YouTube,” he added.
