The first-ever 24-hour local comedy channel in the country, BuKo (short for Buhay Komedya), scored big among families craving for a refreshing blend of quality entertainment and lifestyle shows since its launch last August.
Following the huge success of BuKo Originals’ #MaineGoals, a lifestyle-oriented vlog show starring Maine Mendoza, and ‘Kusina ni Mamang,’ Pokwang’s cooking show that explores traditional Filipino home cooking, the channel is revving up for more amusement with its new lineup of programs set to air this November. Headlining not just comedy classics and hit sitcoms in the coming months, BuKo has more in store for #MaineGoals, so fans should stay tuned for updates on this always-trending show.
