Willie Revillame
will return on television on Saturday, May 14, with a new, refurbished primetime offering.

In a statement sent to Yahoo! OMG! Philippines late Tuesday, May 10, TV5 announced that the show will be titled "Wil Time Bigtime," which will occupy the timeslot of its predecessor, "Willing Willie."

The game show will also have Willie and Valenzuela Councilor Shalani Soledad as the main hosts, the statement said. It did not mention, however, the inclusion of the other hosts in "Willing Willie" in the new show.

"“Wil Time Bigtime is the people’s program. This show is created to entertain them, make them forget their problems even for a while, and possibly realize their dreams," Willie was quoted as saying in the statement.

The statement added that the show will "showcase new games that will utilize an LED (light-emitting diodes) floor and new software technology for a whole new TV experience.

"This brand new approach in local game shows is definitely a visual treat for all Filipinos. While brainstorming for new segments, we're keeping in mind that these new innovations on TV shall be incorporated in all the mechanics of the games to make sure that we offer something new for everyone," said Jay Montelibano, business unit head of "Wil Time Bigtime."

“We’re very optimistic with what the new show has to offer. Wil Time Bigtime becomes TV5’s strongest link to the masses and we’re offering them a whole new TV viewing experience with the technology we’re utilizing in the show,” said Roberto V. Barreiro, TV5 Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer.

The show will air at 5pm this Saturday and subsequent weeknights at 6:30pm on TV5.
