HOLLYWOOD, California (The Adobo Chronicles, Los Angeles Bureau) – The American television series “Madam Secretary” made headlines weeks ago after it depicted the “Philippines’ unconventional new president” crossing the line by making inappropriate advances towards the female lead character, US Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord.
Viewers believe that it was a depiction of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Now, The Adobo Chronicles has just learned that an upcoming episode of the same TV series again tackles a delicate issue in the Philippines: treason.
In the trailer obtained by AdoboChron, a certain “unconventional and rookie Vice President in the Philippines” travels to Washington D.C. and meets with the U.S. Secretary of State. She shows her alleged videos of extra-judicial killings in her country. In that meeting, she asks Madam Secretary to support her plot to oust the Philippine president.
In response, Madam Secretary tells the VP straight in the face that that’s not how Democracy works. “What you’re doing is treason,” she tells the VP.
The show’s producers have yet to schedule a play date for the new episode.
