  • Technology and design

We will have Buyer’s Guide Segments on:

  • Construction to finish
  • Furnishing and maintenance

Premiered last April 28, 2012 on GMA News TV Channel 11, HOME BASE airs every Saturday,  10am with re-airings on GMA International (GMA Pinoy TV) in the USA, Canada, Japan and the Middle East.

It is currently hosted by Kapuso Celebrity Host Pia Guanio.

Our Vision

With the thrust of building homes and changing lives, HOME BASE is guided by these overarching questions: How do we apply what we learn to each of our dream homes as ordinary Filipinos, and more importantly, to the greater community around us? The vision we have for the show extends to scaling up whatever we learn in building homes–in terms of practical tips and sustainable technologies both simple and complex–in the hope of changing lives.

Our Team

HOME BASE is produced by Marnie Manicad Productions International (MMPI), a Philippine-based production company with internationally-released productions.

MMPI produced INSIDE MALACANANG, a documentary on the Philippine presidential palace for National Geographic Channel. It aired globally last March 2012. Another National Geographic doumentary dubbed as ASIAN INNOVATION:KNOXOUT aired last April 2013 in time for the Earth Day.

We also completed DANCE OF THE STEEL BARS, a full length feature film in co-production with Portfolio Films International, based on the story behind the dancing inmates of Cebu, Philippines. This first international film of Dingdong Dantes will be released this coming June 12, 2013 in all Philippine cinemas.

Our current production, TURBO ZONE, is a weekly TV Motoring Show feeding the drive of motor enthusiasts and car owners in the Philippines.  It offers a young and dynamic take on Philippine motoring with a global perspective and is the first of its kind in the country — a news magazine format TV Motoring show bringing the secrets of the motor and car experts to a wider audience. TURBO ZONE is currently on its 7th SEASON, airing back-to-back with HOME BASE every Saturday at 10:30am on GMA News TV.
