QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – FPJ’s “Ang Probinsyano,” the longest-running action-drama series on Philippine television, is finally coming to an end, 4 years after it premiered on the ABS-CBN Network.
The network made this announcement after executives approved the launching of a replacement teleserye titled “Ninja Cops.”

The issue of “Ninja Cops” surfaced at a recent Senate hearings presided over by Senate Blue Ribbon Committee Chair Richard Gordon. During said hearings, resigned Police Chief Oscar Albayalde has been linked to the issue.
“Ang Probinsyano” lead star Coco Martin will continue his role as a corruption-fighting cop in the new series.
Reliable sources told The Adobo Chronicles that Senator Grace Poe, FPJ’s daughter, will be the new show’s executive producer. Other than Martin, Poe’s mom, veteran actress Susan Roces will reprise her role as Cardo’s (Martin) grandmother,
“Ninja Cops” airs weekdays at 7:45 p.m.
MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Forget about the elevated pedestrian walkways or the business coach on MRT. Senator Grace Poe has a new proposal to alleviate the almost insurmountable traffic crisis in Metro Manila, especially along EDSA.
Today, Poe — chair of the Senate Committee on Public Services — proposed the fielding of triple-deckers to replace the dilapidated city buses that now ply the Quezon City to Makati route.
Poe told The Adobo Chronicles that for each triple decker that is fielded on EDSA, “we can reduce the number of buses that clog the busy thoroughfare by three.”
The Senator said she plans to travel to Europe next month to observe the mass transportation system in the developed countries, particularly the use of double decker buses. “But we can do better,” she said. I’d like to see triple deckers instead.”
