TV5's airing of its television remake of the classic film "Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum" would just have to wait.
As a sign of respect to the film's original star Robin Padilla, who has an ongoing teleserye, "Guns and Roses" on ABS-CBN, Perci Intalan, TV5's head of creative and Entertainment Productions announced in his Twitter account on Thursday, June 9 that the airing of the station's version of "Ang Utol Kong Hoodlum" starring JC de Vera and Jasmine Curtis Smith will be moved to September.
"Thanks for all the good feedback we got on the teaser of #utolkonghoodlum.

In an exclusive statement sent to Yahoo! OMG! Philippines, Robin Padilla commended the Kapatid network for its humble decision to give way to him and his show adding that the Philippine entertainment industry still has unity, respect and love for each other amidst the seemingly prevailing network wars.
"Isa lamang pagpapatunay ito na sa industriya ng pelikula at telebisyon ay namamayani pa rin ang pagkakaisa, pagpapahalaga at pagmamahalan.. ang aking malalim na pagpupugay ay ang siyang napukaw ng kapatid network," he said.
