Manila, Philippines – Millions of TV series and movies are being produced in different parts of the world, and this is where METV comes into the picture.

Ang goal ng METV is to bring much of this content to Philippine shores.

“Our partnership with foreign producers with the help of APEC MEDIA, our partner based in Australia, has given us the opportunity to distribute their TV shows, documetaries and movies to the Philippines’ top TV networks.

We are starting off with the China Theater series,” sabi ni Peter Paul Sales, managing director ng METV.

FYI, si Peter Sales ay former radio jock a.k.a. Tito Potato at former station manager ng Wow FM.

Chinese movies and TV shows are truly the favorites of the Filipino and Chinese entertainment groups who have supported and shared METV’s  advocacy in exchanging ideas, culture and knowledge through entertainment.

Ang mga Chinese series at documentaries which will be shown on Philippine TV were handpicked by METV to make sure that the titles match the discriminating taste of the Filipino audience.

“Our easiest access is China kasi we had worked with them before and our ties with Australia are as close to the Chinese group.

“We buy the materials and we produce our own titles and contents. APEC media international wants to get the account and copyright para mas mababa ang presyo and it’s okay with China basta ang deal is to air it on mainstream TV,” Sales clarifies.

Ilan sa mga titles ng teleserye at documentary include Hot Mom, Ang Mga Simula sa Buhay, Dalawang Daang Taon ng Operasyon and Asya at Ang Tanglaw ng Sibilisasyon.

Among these, Hot Mom is everyone’s favorite even among media and TV executives who attended the recent mediacon at My Cinema Greenbelt 3.

“‘Yung lalake sa Hot Mom, sikat talaga siya, inilabas na ang TV series na ‘yan sa Europe and nag-click!”

Cast of Hot Mom includes Betty Sun, Xia Bing, Zhang Yi, Yuan Bao, Ming Dao, Bao Shuai, Vivian Wu, Li Mu Zi,  Morni Chang, Luo Tian, Paul Chun and Xia Jian Guo.

“Mga January or February, it will be aired on mainstream TV and as of now, we are in the process of negotiations with AllTV. One of our goals right now is may isang Chinese serye na sisikat talaga. Ang mga C-drama is relatable as far as the Pinoy viewers are concerned.

“We hope the Filipino audience will accept the titles of our C-Drama as films or TV series like normal entertainment materials,” Peter speaks with high hopes.

Well, don’t you think it’s about time we embraced Chinese drama as tight as other Asian TV shows? JP Ignacio
