Our afternoon TV viewing has often been coupled with Tagalog or Mexican soap operas and drama series. However, this will never be the same again as the Kapamilya network changes their afternoon programming by fielding a comedy series on the afternoon block. The program is “Parekoy”, a “komediserye” which will run for only 30 minutes. It has a structure of a teleserye but with a touch and look of a sitcom.

"Parekoy" tells the story of three funny men who enjoy everything that life offers them. It will show the misadventures of John Prats (Joseph), Zanjoe Marudo (Mario) and Jayson Gainza (Jess) as friends and how they think of ingenuous ways to help needy people. A fourth member of their barkada, Ringo, died when they were just teenagers. Ringo's death holds the key to a mystery that will unravel as the story goes along.

The show is like a daily “Palibhasa Lalake” or like the three’s defunct show "Aalog-Alog", but the show ends in a cliffhanger and not with crazy antics like throwing pails of water at each other.

Watch and discover the secrets in the lives of these desirable men as "Parekoy" airs on ABS-CBN this January 5.
