An infotainment program that tackles initiatives about the TV and motion picture industries, MTRCB Uncut, is also set to premiere tonight at 8 p.m.
The program is an initiative of the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) and government television station People’s Television Network Inc. (PTV4).
MTRCB board members Bobby Andrews and Jackie Aquino are the main hosts of the show, while fellow board members are in charge of particular segments. “Pulso ni Juan at Juana” fea–tures Gladys Reyes interviewing viewers for their insights and opinions on what they want to see on TV and in the movies; while “Kita-Keats” has educator board member Carmen “Keats” Musngi dishing out her funny observations about media.
The heart of the show is “Prangkahan,” a no-holds-barred discussion with MTRCB board members and resource persons on issues which promote and protect the family, the youth, the disabled, and other vulnerable sectors of society who require special attention in the realm of media and entertainment.
Gracing the “Klik Kay Juan at Juana” celebrity segment of the pilot episode is top actress Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo.
MTRCB Chairman Atty. Eugenio “Toto” Villarreal will also personally answers questions sent to the agency in his own portion entitled “i-Share Mo Kay Chair.”
MTRCB Uncut is the first foray of the government classification agency into TV production. In explaining its rationale, Chair Villarreal stated, “We embarked on this to fulfill our developmental mandate to our primary stakeholders which are the TV viewers and the moviegoers.
“Another goal of ours is to promote audience sensitivity to sectors that are considered vulnerable in media such as the women, children, Persons With Disabilities, and senior citizens.”
He hopes that the program will contribute to the Filipinos’ growth as media consumers. “Ultimately, we want to empower viewers to become discerning about what they watch and encourage those in their circle of influence to be the same.”
MTRCB Uncut airs every Sunday, 8 p.m. over at PTV4. For more information, follow MTRCB on Twitter (@MTRCBgov), Instagram (@mtrcbuncut), and YouTube Channel (MTRCB Uncut). Queries and suggestions may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
