TALENT manager and television host Ogie Diaz confirmed recently that the pairing of Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil, popularly known as LizQuen, have received offers from other TV networks and movie outfits.

However, he also said that the Kapamilya network has no plans of letting the popular loveteam go anywhere, according to a story in The Philippine Star.

“Actually, ang LizQuen ay isa sa mga hindi binibitawan ng ABS-CBN. As per Tita Cory Vidanes, nung nakausap ko, gumagawa naman daw sila ng paraan kung paano maitatawid ‘yung mga love teams na pinoprotektahan nila at sine-secure talaga nila. Alam naman natin ang KathNiel, nandiyan yan. Ang LizQuen andyan din,” Diaz was quoted as saying.

While staying with the Kapamilya network remains a priority, Diaz said that having offers from the other networks and movie outfits is a good problem for his wards.

“GMA expressed their interest. TV5 also and ‘yung Viva. Nagbigay sila ng kanilang interes. This is a good problem for us pero siyempre priority muna namin ang ABS-CBN,” Diaz said via his YouTube channel.

“Kapag wala talagang maibigay na ang ABS-CBN at in-allow naman silang lumipad sa ibang bakuran, doon pa lang kami magko-consider. Pero at least napakagandang problema nito para sa amin. Actually, hindi ito problema. Isang ano lang ito, isipin,” he added.

The same story also revealed that the pairing will team up with director Cathy Garcia-Molina for a movie under the Star Cinema banner.

“One time last week, merong pinitch sa aming movie si Inang Olive (Lamasan) sa Star Cinema. Excited ‘yung dalawa na gawin yung movie provided kailangan mag-flatten ‘yung curve ng pandemya,” Diaz said.

The tandem of Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil was last seen on TV via the series “Make It With You,” while the last movie the tandem starred in directed by Molina was 2017’s “My Ex and Whys.”
