MANILA, Philippines – After ABS-CBN’s big move to franchise the worldwide phenomenal hit “The X Factor,” it seems that the Kapamilya network is also planning to localize another hit American reality talent show.

In an interview with Push.com.ph, television host Robi Domingo revealed he and director Lauren Diyogi had a talk about his future projects and among them is being part of the Philippine franchise of “The Voice.”

“Direk Lauren Dyogi and I had a talk, actually it was such a long talk, umabot ng isang oras and he has plans for me. I’m also eyeing for this project called 'The Voice.' They’re making a franchise here,” Domingo said.

The 22-year-old television host said he is looking forward to doing this because he really watches the American reality show.

"I watch the foreign franchise together with my family. We like watching Ceelo Green, Cristina Aguilera, and Adam Levine,” he said.

“The Voice” invaded Philippine television after Studio 23 aired its second season last March 31.

Studio 23 is a fully owned subsidiary of ABS-CBN Corp.
