Two actresses Shaina Magdayao and Denise Laurel have provocative roles in "The Better Half," an ABS-CBN's new drama series which aired its pilot episode on Monday, February 13.
It was seen in the teaser that both of them shot intimate scenes with their two leading men, JC de Vera and Carlo Aquino. Shaina even had love scenes with these two men.
The Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) appointed the sexy star-turned-blogger, Mocha Uson as one of its new board members. Mocha said that one of her advocacies is to prohibit the airing of "soft porn" on television.
When Shaina and Denise were asked about this during the show's February 9 presscon, Denise said: "Well, I've been working with ABS-CBN for a very, very long time and I've been doing a lot of these sensual, very suggestive, and risky scenes throughout some of the shows that I've done.
"And ABS always takes care of their artists, and they're very aware of the guidelines that MTRCB gives so they really pass it to the board and it's clean before it's released."
"At the same time, pag shino-shoot namin, we really have in mind the rules and if the actors are comfortable.
"We’re very careful, they make you feel very secure sa set so we really know coming into it na safe kami and the production and the staff will always be there for us and the directors won't make us cheap."
Business unit head Ginny Monteagudo-Ocampo revealed that she personally goes to the set when shooting these scenes, mainly because it's the first time their unit will be exploring this genre. She narrated, "Tama yung sinabi ni Denise, even when we shoot, during shoot, maingat na maingat kami.
Ocampo made sure that the MTRCB previewed their sensual scenes. In fact, the pilot episode of 'The Better Half' has been given an SPG rating or Super Parental Guidance.
Ocampo added: "So sa shoot pa lang, maingat na and if we see or we think that there are scenes that are quite sensitive, minsan, pinapareview namin sa MTRCB even before it's aired.
"Just a while ago, napreview na ng MTRCB yung pilot namin and SPG siya. Pumasa naman pero at least, walang ika-cut or anything kasi medyo sensual yung first day namin, e."
Meanwhile, Shaina said: "With Miss Ginny's guidance dun sa set namin because she personally goes on the set and this is directed by Jeffrey Jeturian tapos inilawan pa ni Sir Neil Daza, it is tastefully done.
"That's what I can say dahil ako mismo yung nandun sa mga eksena na yun."
