TVB Executive Deputy Chairman, Norman Leung (梁乃鹏), invited the cast of Divas in Distress <巴不得媽媽…> for a celebratory banquet on October 17. Divas in Distress is currently the third highest-rated drama of 2012, and it is known for driving actors Koo Ming Wah (古明華) and Eliza Sam (岑麗香) to stardom.
At the banquet, Norman Leung revealed his intentions on spreading TVB artists’ influence to mainland China and Taiwan. Last month, TVB spent $1.6 billion TWD on a piece of land in Taiwan’s New Taipei City to build a new filming facility for TVBS, a subsidiary of TVB that is completely based in Taiwan. Norman Leung stated, “Construction on the new site should cost about $4.5 billion TWD. The studios should be ready by 2015.”
Since its establishment in 1993, TVBS has produced seven local television dramas and numerous other entertainment programs.
