is TV5’s “Misibis Bay” tv series soft porn?

there can be no more blatant way to use sex in selling TV shows to the audience than in TV5’s new TV show or the tease, a promise (?),  of showing off the body of  its sexy star lead actress. TV5 is set to launch a new TV series, “misibis bay”  and it is convincing the audience to watch the TV show not because of its plot, story, acting talents of its cast or production values but all and only on the basis that their lead actress has a sexy body, described even as  not just a “beauty” but more importantly “virginal ” and a not so subtle promise it will be enjoyed on the TV screens.

TV5’s website with the article showing the sexy body of their lead actress in a skimpy bikini to match the “virginal beauty” title of the article

there is no mistake in what the article is trying to do – having the words “beauty”, “virginal” and “ravishing” in the same headline with a revealing bikini shot of the lead actress clearly states the intent. they did not ever bother to talk about what the TV series is all about – comedy, drama or action in the article. with these kinds of combination, we are guessing this will be some kind of a soft porn TV series.

we are wondering, is this a good representation of the state of philippine tv? we have seen many inane tv shows in the philippines – noontime and early prime time  variety shows that feature actresses who sing out of tune, “kembot girls” in various stages of undress gyrating in the background  and poorly written scripts obviously being read off an idiot board below the camera. there are also drama series with the 2 century old favorite pinoy storyline of rich boy-poor girl-wicked mom variety punctuated by face slapping and vilma santos type of screaming not acting.

this one is all out sex or as based on the theme of the article, the exhibition of the sexy body of the lead actress, ritz azul. in fact when you google for photos of the lead actress, you will see more photos of her with very little clothes on than pictures of her fully clothed.

that leads us to the next question – who is the target market of this tv show? the focus on the sexy body of the lead actress seem to imply the target audience of the tv show are men. that makes us wonder – do men watch drama series? if misibis bay is some kind of soft porn tv series, then they are spot on with their promotion strategy.

is this whole promotion strategy a winner or is it WAWAM?
