In the past, TVB Anniversary series broadcast near year-end were always at an advantage. Besides the heavy promotions, the TVB Anniversary Awards took place during the same time frame, placing emphasis on these dramas.
Allegedly, Beauty at War <金枝慾孽-貳> and Triumph in the Skies 2 <衝上雲霄II> were initially chosen as the two Anniversary series of 2013. Since Beauty at War’s producer Jonathan Chik (戚其義) left TVB, Rosy Business 3 <巾幗梟雄之諜血長天> was rumored to take its spot instead. Regarding this, TVB program director, K.C. Ho (何冠中), expressed that Jonathan has a good relationship with TVB and his departure had nothing to do with the broadcasting time of the drama.
Rosy Business 3 has not even started filming yet. Producer Lee Tim Shing (李添勝) said, “I heard rumors about the drama being aired this year. As to when and whether or not it will be an Anniversary series, it does not matter.”
K.C. revealed that the important dramas of the year would be selected to air in the fourth season. The first season had included Inbound Troubles <老表, 你好嘢!>. Below is the current schedule for the next three seasons. It is not set in stone yet, since all dramas are either still filming, or are yet to begin.
