Link: Aquino dismayed over student's lack of knowledge in PH history
This PinoyKasaysayanSerye idea can be a [very] good Corporate Social Responsibility endeavor which our local TV entertainment industry can initiate with the noble objective of helping our kababayans, especially the young & younger generations, get interested and get educated about their own country's history in a very effective and highly entertaining way - which the Philippine educational system is poorly effective at doing (tinanggal pa na nga nila ang nag-iisang Philippine history subject sa college na "Jose Rizal").
The movie "Heneral Luna" is an excellent example of a history book adaptation that greatly helps enrich the pinoy public's sense of own culture and history. I think even a teleserye adaptation of "Heneral Luna" would still be able to accomplish the same thing to even a much more wider audience and it would be a sure prime time TV blockbuster in our country.
A side thought: Perhaps this PinoyKasaysayanSerye idea may in a certain way, address Lea Salonga's tweet (which I presume was referring to a particular KalyeSerye) which said: “Okay lang sa akin ang kababawan, pero hanggang doon na lamang ba tayo?” IMHO, Lea's statement was rather more of a challenge than plainly considering it as an insult. I see it as a sort of an "eye opener" blow (pangtanggal puwing) for the TV companies and their kilig-captive audiences. It was somewhat a kind of a "reality check" which is at the same level as PNoy's dismay over so many of our kababayan's lack of knowledge in our own country's history and other things of national importance.
