Face to Face is a Philippine reality tabloid talk show aired on TV5 and hosted by Amy Perez. It is produced exclusively by ABC Development Corporation and bills itself as a “Barangay Hall On-Air.”
It is very similar to the US television show The Jerry Springer Show but has a Filipino cultural perspective, predominantly with “marginalized and impoverished guests”. The show aims to resolve minor conflicts between two arguing parties with the help of a panel of counselors that represent the legal, emotional and spiritual aspects of living.
The show is one of the most popular talk shows in the Philippines but has also proved to be controversial due to the violence exhibited in the show. Hence, the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board has requested that the show “tone down physical altercations between guests”.
