The controversial TV show of Willie Revillame on TV5, Willing Willie will start on October 23.

ABS-CBN Kapamilya Network today filed a petition at the Quezon City Regional Trial Court against Willie Revillame on his upcoming show on TV5, which was said to premiere on October 23.

The broadcasting company, according to their website is requesting a Temporary Restraining Order (TRO) against the defunct TV show Wowowee host, to stop the latter ‘from committing further violations to his contract with the network’.

In a 38-page petition filed by ABS-CBN, the court appeal is set to prevent Willie Revillame from creating or performing work in companies that are direct competitors of ABS-CBN, particularly ABC5’s new show that has a supposed title of Willing Willie.

This step of ABS-CBN is being expected as the network earlier claims that Revillame is still under contract with them.

It all started when Revillame allegedly violated the behavioral provisions of his contract after he threatened the ABS-CBN management last May.

On a particular episode of the former TV show Wowowee, Willie Revillame announced that he will resign from the show if the management will not fire another artist of the network.

After leading one issue to another, until Willie Revillame filed a P11-million suit against ABS-CBN last month.

Later, ABS-CBN filed a P426.92 million countersuit against Willie Revillame, including a P20-M payment for moral and exemplary damages, as well as for attorney’s fees and litigation expenses.
