Niki Chow and Michael Tse Unafraid Of Ratings Impact
It was not the first time that TVB dramas were enjoyed by overseas audiences prior to public broadcast in Hong Kong. It was understood that TVB and overseas broadcasting networks possessed confidence in Sergeant Tabloid, thus wished to air it prior to Hong Kong broadcast. Producer Nelson Cheung explained, “Perhaps overseas broadcasting networks have open slots in their programming schedules, thus they wished to air Sergeant Tabloid early. Overseas audience have expectations towards Hong Kong dramas. TVB felt that it was appropriate to release the drama overseas and did not select the choice haphazardly.”
Nelson Cheung felt confident in the quality of Sergeant Tabloid and was not concerned that the drama will become a TVB warehouse series, unable to be broadcast for years. Niki Chow expressed the same sentiment and saw the situation positively. Michael Tse noted, “It’s better than for the drama to become a warehouse series!” While Michael wished to see the drama broadcast sooner in Hong Kong, he was not upset towards TVB’s arrangements. The trio were not concerned that the early overseas broadcast will affect the ratings in Hong Kong.

Jayne: Sergeant Tabloid features many beautiful actresses as police officers, as well as William Chak and Matthew Ko in prominent supporting roles. This is the best looking police force I’ve seen in a TVB drama in years! With the Hong Kong police looking like a bunch of models, no wonder, tabloid reporter, Michael Tse is interested in chronicling their love lives!
