The new teleserye is titlted ‘Kris Aquino’s Ang Hukuman.’  It premieres in mid-December on ABS-CBN.


‘Ang Probinsyano’ Finally Coming To An End

QUEZON CITY, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Quezon City Bureau) – Producers of the long-running ABS-CBN’s ‘Ang Probinsyano,’ are finally giving in to the demand of Department of  Interior and Local Governments (DILG) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) to change the teleserye’s plot to make it less critical of the said government agencies.

But while agreeing to change the story line, producers also announced that the teleserye is finally coming to an end after three years of broadcast.

ABS-CBN unveiled details of the show’s final episode which airs in mid-December, just before Christmas.

According to informed sources, the final episode will fast-forward the story and feature an aging Cardo, the good cop (played by Coco Martin), who will retire from service after finally bringing honesty and competency to the police department.

”The story ends with the end of corruption within the police ranks,” one of the producers told The Adobo Chronicles.

All’s well that ends well.

“Ang Probinsyano” : The Show Must Go On

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.
