TVB to film a 60 episode Grand Production seriesSource: Singpao
Next year would mark the 10th Anniversary of Hong Kong’s homecoming back to mainland China. In order to celebrate for the past decade, TVB wants to film a 60 episode grand production series, “Fung Wan Sui Yuet” 《風雲歲月》 (unconfirmed title); with location scenes spread out over mainland China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Canada. All info concerning the series is still undecided and unconfirmed, but TVB will be collaborating with a China production company, with plans of its release in July of 2008.
Ever since the production of “At the Threshold of an Era” (創世紀), it’s been a long time since TVB has produced 60+ episode series. This time TVB would be collaborating with a China production company to commemorate the 10th Anniversary, with a huge grand production series, “Fung Wan Siu Yuet,” with Leung Ka Su (梁家樹) as the producer. A grand production will need a grand cast, too, inviting top “Fai Daans and “Siu Sungs” to participate. Unconfirmed cast members include: Charmaine Sheh, Jessica Hsuan, Ron Ng, veteran actor, Damian Lau, and Chan Do Ming and Chan Bo Gwok, 2 renowned mainland actors. Although the series won’t be air until late next year, many preparations are still needed; such as writing the script, organizing locations for filming, selecting cast members, etc. More meetings will be held in the upcoming future for more confirmations.
*SEN: Strong cast indeed! Hope the finalization for the cast & series would come quickly! Charmaine and Jessica collaborating again, since DIF IV?!! Yay! Damian Lau is fine, too. Ron Ng? Umm...cough...No comment! ;-)
