GMA capitalizes on Azkals phenomenon with 'Futbolilits'

You may call them the TV version of the Azkals, but “Futbolilits” is more than that. It outlines an intense rivalry between two teams of young footballers, one team playing according to the rules while the other determined to win regardless of the rules.

Futbolilits,” which begins airing tomorrow, July 4, before “24 Oras” on GMA-7, features excitement that comes into the colorful world of football.

The non-bulilit cast includes Reymart Santiago, Jennylyn Mercado, Paolo Contis, Angelika dela Cruz, Nova Villa, Benjie Paras, and Daniel Matsunaga.

The “bolilits” are Yogo Singh as Kikoy, a football enthusiast who aspires to follow in the footsteps of his idol, Hero; Renz Valerio as Sherwin, and Isabel “Lenlen” Frial as Tetang.

“I am not a football player,” Paolo, who plays Enrico, said. “But we have tutors on the set.” As Enrico, he is the coach of Raszkulits. Enrico is the rival coach of Frankie, played by Raymart Santiago.

Paolo revealed that they have been taping “Futbolilits” for three weeks already. “When we shoot a football scene, it usually takes us 12 hours,” he said.

Paolo has two daughters, the elder is three years old while his “bunso” is only three months old. He said that he plans to wed his partner Lian Paz next year.
