The Movie and Television Regulation and Classification Board found the title of Ang Spooky Mo Presents, the new GMA7 show with Marian Rivera in the pilot installment, as a reference to the Pinoy colloquial expression “Ang P--- Mo!” that it had to change the title’s double meaning. The Kapuso network suggested several replacements and the Grace Poe Llamanzares-chaired body picked Spooky Nights Presents.
GMA7’s new monthly comedy-horror series created by Senedy Que will pilot on March 26. Bampirella with Marian in the title role is the opening show. A spoof of Cinderella and vampire stories, Marian does the wacky role of Bampirella who is cursed to be a vampire but has a big fear of blood. Imagine: a vampire who cannot suck blood and the comedy it can spin! Marian stars with Mikael Diaz while Dingdong Dantes does a special role.
