THE Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) has called the executives of the ABS-CBN primetime soap opera “Till I Met You” featuring James Reid and Nadine Lustre to an urgent conference  on Nov. 10 over a supposedly “daring” love scene and episodes tagged as having “sexually teasing” content.

Citing feedback from social and conventional media, MTRCB chairperson  Atty. Eugenio Toto Villareal invited directors Antoinette Jadaone and Andoy Ranay, executive producer Arnel Nacario, and writer Shugo Praico for a conference on Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. at the MTRCB Adjudication Room in Quezon City in connection with the  show’s Oct. 25, 26, 27, and 28 episodes.
“The 25 October 2016 episode includes a purportedly daring lovemaking scene inside a motor vehicle, which some audiences found to be unfit for television (despite its ‘SPG’ advisory), said Villareal.
Villareal also said that regarding the 26 October 2016 episode, we received feedback as to the casual use of the words ‘sex lang ’yan’ without reference to, or in disregard of, the institution of marriage”
The chairman cited the sex scene between lead actors Reid and Lustre that aired on Oct. 25.
“The 27 and 28 October 2016 episodes, upon the other hand, contain allegedly ‘sexually teasing’ as well as more outrightly sexually charged bath-related scenes (bearing only a ‘PG’ Parental Guidance advisory) -- both of which were found by some audiences as inappropriate for television,” Villareal added.
