Wilma Valle Galvante (born February 24, 1952) is the current head of TV5's entertainment division and former GMA Network's senior vice president for entertainment; she is also a producer of many TV shows.
As the chief of the GMA Network's entertainment block, she experimented with dramas, light-hearted shows and hired good writers. She revived the love team tandem popularized in the 1970s, resurrected local comics titles and introduced fantasy series on prime time such as Mulawin. Through her initiative, the network brought the rights to a number of local comics titles such as Darna and Captain Barbel. By the last quarter of 2003, GMA’s primetime shows led over the rival network’s.
Early life and career
Immediately after graduating from the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, Wilma was employed as a production assistant at Radio Philippines Network. Through this early work experience, she was able to understand how it is to run a TV show from the financial to production aspect.
