An e-mailer writes to ask if the FCC should be looking at the drug awareness program produced by Maryland first lady Kendel Ehrlich.
Sixteen episodes of the first lady's talk show, "Live Right: Straight Talk on Substance Abuse" are available at any time of day on Comcast On Demand. She was paid $55,000-a-year to produce and star in the show, and has since tried to have the show distributed in Maryland public schools.
Most episodes involve interviews Ehrlich conducts with various experts on the subjects of drug and alcohol abuse by teens. But episode 10, reviewed in Sunday's Post by Style reporter Libby Copeland, includes sexually explicit content and brief nudity.
As Copeland describes it, the show takes viewers into a nightclub called Seacrets "with a bunch of people who are well over 21. What they have to do with the problem of teen substance abuse is not explained; instead, the show is given over to unwarranted shots of drunk people. Women dance lasciviously and a bride-to-be at a bachelorette party displays an extremely large rubber object better left unidentified. Then comes the fellow who feels it necessary to pull something out of his zipper, in front of a small crowd of onlookers."
