Move to SBCEdit
On November 17, 1992, Silverio Goodwin Productions decided to move the show from SNT to SBC. The new head of SNT, Eduardo Murdoch, moved it to SBC because he didn't like kissing and romance.
RTOA, channel 6, (Deva, Visaygo) kept the show from that day until its decline in 1997. Another station, RMTV, channel 48 (Mulittiki), aired the show until 1994. The show remained on SBC until its series finale in 1997.
The show debuted on Wednesday, August 14, 1985 on SNT Television at 7:00 PM SST. The show aired new episodes every Friday at 10:00 PM SST (it was later broadcast at 9:00 PM SST). It was so popular that the show became a success. Beginning with the seventh season, it aired on SBC. It remained on the network until 1997. The show currently airs reruns on nick@night at 11:00 SST.
On November 9, 2006 SNT announced that there will be a movie based on the TV series. Production started on February 21, 2012. A teaser trailer was released on SNT's official YouTube channel. On May 15, 2012, SNT announced the film will be named True Lives: The Revenge of Shevi Andegro. However, production was cancelled following an accident during filming.
In 2014, SNT announced that the film would instead be a reboot of the original series, to cash in on the nostalgia trend. Production took two years and the film, now titled "True Lives: Reunion," was released in theatres on June 17, 2017 to mostly negative reviews. The film was a financial failure as well, only grossing SP 17 million against a SP 22 million budget.
