img_5987NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, New York Bureau) – When NBC announced that it was coming out with a new television sitcom about an American widower who takes a Filipina mail-order bride to help raise his kids, there were protests not only from the Filipino community but many women’s groups.  Many had accused NBC of glorifying sex trafficking.

Responding to the protests, NBC today announced that it has renamed the new sitcom to “Pen Pals.”

The story line remains the same.
