Now on its 5th year, GMA Life TV, the first Filipino lifestyle channel abroad offered by GMA International, is serving up a new slate of program launches and a slate of brand new seasons.

The magazine-travel program “Today with Francis” hosted by Francis Papica opened its second season last June 1. Airing every Saturday, the show promises to take viewers to new locations with the most interesting guests joining its resident host.

The “Tim Yap Show”, which brings the latest updates and trending showbiz topics straight from social media, also aired its second season. With its multi-hyphenated host dishing out new “Yapdates,” the program is set to become bigger and more colorful with new guests and intriguing stories airing Tuesdays through Saturdays on the channel.

The TV adaptation of the 1980’s movie “Blusang Itim” also recently premiered. Just as many people got captivated by Snooky Serna’s role as Jessa, GMA Life TV is certain that fast-rising Kapuso actress Kylie Padilla would be as mesmerizing in this brand new series. This time around, the story promises to be more gripping as it revolves around the fashion industry. It can be seen on GMA Life TV Tuesdays through Saturdays.

Also premiering on GMA Life TV is season two of “Mega Fashion Crew”, where a new batch of fashion hopefuls vie for a spot in the industry. Billed as one of the greatest opportunities to ever come into the life of a struggling youth creative, the continuation of “MEGA’s” widely followed TV offerings airs every Saturday on GMA Life TV.

GMA Life TV is available in the U.S, Canada, the Middle East, North Africa, Europe, Hong Kong, Guam, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, and Madagascar with an estimated one million viewers from all over the world. It will also be launched in additional pay-TV systems in North Africa and the Asia Pacific Region this year.
