QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Producers of the long-running teleserye, “Ang Probinsyano” remain undaunted despite a directive from the Philippine National Police (PNP) that henceforth, government vehicles, paraphernalia and personnel will no longer be used in the television show.
The directive was a result of allegations that the PNP was being portrayed in a negative light in the teleserye.
The Adobo Chronicles learned that the first two police patrol cars ordered from China by the teleserye’s producers arrived yesterday. Expected to arrive from abroad soon are other law enforcement paraphernalia such as handcuffs, guns, batons, searchlights, megaphones and an attack helicopter.
ABS-CBN says that it will not adhere to the Department of Interior and Local Governments (DILG) demand for “Ang Probinsyano” writers to change the plot of the teleserye.
We could not independently confirm the rumor that the teleserye will be renamed “Ang Foreignsyano or that lead actor Coco Martin will be replaced by an actor from China or South Korea.
