Pepito Manaloto

After a remarkable four-season run, the Kapuso network's reality sitcom, Pepito Manaloto, bids its primetime viewers goodbye as it concludes its story-line this Sunday, March 25.
Pepito's rocket to fortune after winning P700 million in the lottery has tremendously changed his plain and poor life with his wife, Elsa (Manilyn Reynes), and children, Chito (Jake Vargas) and Clarissa (Angel Satsumi). The comedy-drama series has depicted the life of Pepito and his family as they cope with the circumstances they are put in due to their family's instant affluence while keeping their morals and values intact.

The last episode will find Pepito faced with a predicament as he finds it difficult to squeeze in family time while running a number of business enterprises. The finale will zero-in on a rough patch that Pepito and Elsa's marriage will go through as the millionaire couple will decide to live separate lives for the meantime as they sort out their problem.

Will Pepito and Elsa's marriage succumb to the pitfalls of fortune?

Under the direction of Bert De Leon, Pepito Manaloto is the brain-child of comedian Michael V. and KB Entertainment Unlimited, Inc. Its four seasons also featured actors Carmina Villarroel, Freddie Webb, Janna Dominguez, Mosang, Janine Gutierrez, Lexi Fernandez, Chariz Solomon, Pekto, Cherie Gil, Ehra Madrigal, Carmi Martin, and Juan Rodrigo.
