K was a short-lived Filipino television miniseries aired on IBC-TV that told the fictional story of the country being ruled by Communists. Made on a low budget, this series enjoyed a huge following among viewers and was even used as an educational reference on what the nation and Filipino lives might be like under Communist rule. Right-wingers and human rights activists in the Philippines objected to the mini-series, however, as they believed that K would only spread Communism among the people and even spark revolts between the government and rebel forces. Politics aside, K is widely believed to be influenced by the Amerika miniseries, as it was released in 1988, and shared many of its themes.

The program is an off-shoot of the Balitang K segment of TV Patrol before its reformat in 1996. TV Patrol was reformated in 1996 because of the success of Mexican telenovela, MariMar. To beef up the ratings of ABS-CBN, Balitang K was launched as a pre-program to TV Patrol. Balitang K aired after the public service program, Hoy Gising!
In 2001, TV Patrol anchor Noli De Castro ran for a senate seat, leaving his anchor's chair vacant. Korina was promoted as Chief Correspondent, and became the anchor of TV Patrol. Kris Aquino took over Korina's hosting job in the reformatted spin-off, Balitang Kris. However, this new program was cancelled due to poor ratings. Kris would resume hosting duties in another reformatted talk show, Kris and Tell.
The concept of Balitang K was reused for another incarnation, Rated K, also hosted by Sanchez.
