PNP Chief General Oscar Albayalde has a complaint about FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. According to Albayalde, the show gives viewers a “bad impression” on the police.
Kapuso star Jasmine Curtis-Smith left a comment on said issue.
The actress noted that former mayor Lito Atienza‘s complained against historical movie, Goyo. Jasmine expressed her dismay on the said issue.
“First was Goyo and a politician. Now it’s a TV series and the PNP. Authorities want tv and film to show “better” things about them……. Hah”
Coco Martin stressed that PNP guided and supported the making of the show.
“Nagkataon lang na hindi nagkaroon ng pag-uusap, lalo ngayon na tumatakbo nang tatlong taong mahigit ang Probinsyano. Siyempre, bawat character, bawat kuwento nag-iiba-iba. Ngayon, nagkataon lang na bumaligtad ang kuwento. Mahaba pa ang proseso, mahaba pa kasi ang lalakbayin ng kuwento.”
Because of this controversy, Coco apologized as the lead role and creative consultant of the show.
“Siguro dahil bago ang PNP chief natin…nauunawaan naman natin sila kaya ako mismo humihingi ng paumanhin sa nangyayari ngayon. Sana magkaroon kami ng pagkakataon na makipag-usap para maayos ang lahat ng ito.”
Earlier this year, Atienza demanded Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) to properly evaluate Filipino films and give appropriate tax incentives to ensure its quality.
