This year TVB is determined to train newcomers into shooting series. Besides the sequel to Triumph in the Skies using newcomers, Producer Poon Ka Tak is planning to cast newcomers for heavier roles in his new doctor series 36 Hours On Call. The series is temporarily set for Kenneth Ma and Tavia Yeung for the leading roles.
It was said that TVB hopes to speed up the training on the new generation FaDan and Siu Sangs in the next half year to handle the demands of the future series. Not only does TVB plan to select newcomers from the acting class, but also recruit new talents from other areas to join in on the plan to promote newcomers. The group of newcomers will not only have the opportunity to shoot series, but also be arranged to enter the movie industry and shoot movies. TVB hopes to boost them into fame in the shortest amount of time. Like The Voice singer Mag Lam, TVB gave her several opportunities to develop in different areas. She is currently the one artist that will surely be well-known and considered as one example of TVB's success in promoting newcomers.
WARNING: This is just a random rant, so you guys don't have to read it, and instead just enjoy the news.
WTH? They just had 3K, and now TVB wants them in the same series again??? Please change the cast... not only do I not like the Kenneth-Tavia pairing, but who cares about newcomers? Why can't TVB just be content with the people they have now? We all know that none of the new MHK, Mr. HKs or especially Mag Lam will be any good at acting, so why try forcing them down viewers' throats?
EDIT: Hm okay, wow thank you Kenneth for confirming that you and Tavia will really film this. AGH. I'm just hoping that since TVB is so...TVB, they'll at least put Fred in this. I mean, if they make Fred a high school student after so many years, they can make him a medical intern. But then again, it takes around ten years to become a doctor, so he's around the correct age anyways. And preferably they have Oscar too. Plus Jason and Him. You know what, how about TVB have no female newcomers, cause I don't really like any of them, except Katy, if you still count her as a newcomer.
