Philippines to lodge protest against "Desperate Housewives"

The Philippines government is seeking an apology from the producers of the ABC series "Desperate Housewives" after a scene on the show which derided Filipino doctors.

The character on the show played by Teri Hatcher made a comment belittling those who doctors educated in Philippine medical schools. Manila's actions came after a firestorm and petition by Filipino Americans and it was reported by organizer Kevin Nadal last night that ABC issued an apology.
