Awry Connection

When Insider Bigwig (IB) pitched an idea to a network, everyone listened and saw potential in the material. IB’s ambitious pet project was given the green light and support was given. The best production people were assembled, as the network realized that the project was good enough to rate and maintain dominance of its target timeslot. Thus, the time came for casting.

The lead role was narrowed down to three actors. First Actor (FA) was IB’s preference. FA is resilient and no controversy beyond his professional work could tarnish his career. His fans would surely follow him in a new project. Second Actor (SA) was off to a good start in the cinema. SA had several money-earning projects and even a good showing in a TV drama. Besides, he has the body for the role as well. Third Actor (TA) has been trained by the network for many years. He emerged from a newbie actor into a competent leading man.

The Production Lead (PL) had a choice among the three actors as well and that choice was not FA. PL raised the point that FA was still involved in project, which he could not just leave for another. His schedules would be in conflict and overlap. However, a schedule expert said that FA would be able to handle the taping for two different projects. Nonetheless, PL thumbed down the idea. As for SA, even if his last TV project was successful, he still could not connect with the target audience of IB’s project. Having him as the lead was too risky and he was dropped from the choices as well.

Obviously, PL was rooting for TA even if IB was not keen on him. Rather than conflict with PL, IB gave full responsibility to PL’s team. Preparation for taping went on smoothly and the material was well-written. Finally, the airing came. The start of the showing was strong, but as weeks passed, the ratings started to dwindle and the commercials decreased, too. Panic was starting to emerge as the project hit the lowest rating in its timeslot.

The performance of the project disappointed IB and the team could not understand why a project that had good material was not connecting to the audience. The research team was called to discuss why the project was performing below expectations. The discussions confirmed the hunch of IB and the hesitation for TA. Many of the viewers detested TA, which was why the project lacked popularity.

IB was very disappointed and wanted to know why PL was persistent on giving the role to TA. According to rumors that reached IB, PL allegedly has private intimate dealings with some male actors. Thus, IB had to do some sleuthing on her own. While the secret investigation is pending, IB gave instructions that if the project continues to flop in the ratings, its end should come quick and a new project should be on standby for replacement.

    1. Nasayang lang ang project. It could have been better with an actor na may acting and no controversies.

  6. May expectation din pala ang network para sa teleserye niya. Alam na namin na mag flop yan. Basta ang quality ng show nawala kahit ilang days lang bibitaw na ang viewers sa teleserye ni G.
