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.

    wow! four anniversary series?! Two of them contains Mandy Wong & Sire Ma. A battle between 2011 & 2012 most improved winners for 2013 Best Supporting Actress huh?

    Love Firm doesn’t look good though … the ratings might suffer … plus Fala can’t really lead well with such strong main casts that may overshadow her.

    Hippocratic Crush 2 is 100% anniversary series considering how many people are looking forward to it. Love reverses may be hyped up after Bobby’s health.

      as for Rosy 3 … sorry … it looks kinda weak in the casts … unless the storyline has some breakthrough. I have confidence in Edwin Siu though.

      I think the Love Firm would be good considering that Wayne and Moses are in it. As for Rosy Business 3, its cast doesnt look weak to me but i’m unsure whether or not Myolie would be able to handle such a complex character impeccably.

        I don’t like she will beat Sheren Tang in acting. Shall wait and see ……….

        Myolie Wu’s character is “Rosy Business 3” seems to be a strong-personality character, and it is Sheren Tang’s best strength. Sad to “abandon” her for Myolie Wu.

      I guess Myolie will be out of the race because she is under 620, not Catherine Tsang. Cat Tsang will give the awards to her people once again this year. The only chance for Myolie is the Fave Chac if Rosy 3 is successful, if not, she won’t have anything or will only be used to promote the award.

      The performance won’t make any factor to the winning list, now the award is about the favourism in Txb.

        Cat Tsang’s ‘people’ cant win without the support of the other execs. If Myolie’s performance is excellent and it generates alot of praise from the public, she’ll win it for sure. The awards is not ALL about politics.

        wonder if raymond lam’s supporter keep making this conspiracy theory because of bitterness from him losing ‘audience votes’ to wayne and kenneth last year.

        @939393: Other executive ppl? Cat Tsang ganged with Sandy Yu and we all know the other 2 is in Cat Tsang’s team. Tommy Leung? He dun care for Txb internal affair, rmb that he voted for MOL instead of CBML or RB. 620? Lolz, being pulled to TVBC in China this year – it told us wat happened.

        Even if Myolie’s performance is loved by the public, her chance won’t be high if she can’t satisfy the executives. Do you see wat’s happened last year to Michelle Yim and Kate Tsui – who have the most supports?

        I never blv in Txb’s poll, even from the beginning of last year when the idea was raised. Until now, I still dun blv and won’t never blv. If someone win, it’s all about the politics.

        @ Selina: Even if LF wins, it’s still the politics. I have never blved that the politics dun play most/all of role in Txb’s polls.

        And that audience votes, if it was transparent, why never reveal the full result? Oh well…

        Vice versa, if LF won last year instead of Wayne, will you say that politic dun play a role in the poll? Haha, I know your answer.

        @fox: thats all just your theory. none of us knows what’s behind closed doors. And if i’m not mistaken there are 9 execs instead of your mentioned 6. Well nothing wrong with voting for MOL instead of CBML and RB. Tavia has her fair share of supports too but you seem to disregard that. Also, remember how sheren won despite not being in either parties?

        To be honest, I am not really looking forward to Rosy Business 3. I feel like it’s a bit over-exaggerated. It’s kinda boring. I am more excited to see Love Reverses Three Lifetimes of Fate, HC 2 and Beauty at war.

        TITS2 seems to be interesting.

        Fox sounds like a poor loser to me. last time I checked Myolie won best actress and my favourite the year before. you make it sound she doesn’t have a chance due to politics. And you make it sound Kate and Michelle deserves it more than tavia. Last time I checked tavia also won a non-tvb industry award voted from last night with Kenneth. (previously won by moses and charmaine) Oh and AOD award from Malaysia. Oh and there’s a lot more fans of On Call 36 Hours worldwide on an international basis than Highs and Lows. I’m just saying.

        If Myolie is good, she has equal chance to win. Not like they’re gonna give it to Kate she doesn’t even have any big series out this year. Maybe the Dato Wong one but that will at most give her a nomination not the actual award coz there are bigger more challenging roles other actresses are in this year.

        Sore loser.

        Charmaine was let out of the picture because she isn’t with Txb anymore, I said so many times. Michelle Yim shared the same fate but since she had an anni series, her chance was bigger (but ended up with nothing, no doubt). Kate Tsui was a dark horse as predicted after HAL.

        But the politics ruled last year, obviously.

        If anyone can’t read, I said at least 10 times that even if LF won, it’s politics. I echoed above. But you guys have a system to ignore it, I blv. If this year the winner is Kate or Linda, I bet you will say politics politics and buzz!

        My theory or analysis is wrong or rite, wait until the end of the year and we’ll see. Haha, I have my popcorn here. Come and join with me, TY fans + MM fans :P. I’m seeing you guys all here, from old to “new” accounts :P.

        Let’s wait for the actual performances. Maybe then the winning winner will have an actual good performance to back up the win. If winning simply due to popularity and politics, without actual memorable performance to back it up (and memorable can be very good or very bad), it is meaningless. Of course Raymond has shown in the past he is prepared to run to accept an award even if the competition were frozen out or he was not the deserving one, let’s hope when he eventually wins, it will be a deserving win, politics aside.

        And a site note to 939393: Sandy Yu only joined Txb from 2011 😛 and built a gang with Catherine Tsang from 2012 :P. There are 9 executives but the powerful ones are Sandy Yu, Cat Tsang, 620 and Ho Lai Chuen. And from last year, 620 is pulled to TVB China, as we can see all of her fave are now earning Yuan, leave the Txb world to all Catherine Tsang’s ppl. So it’s the picture of last year and this year.

        kate was really ovverated last year. her performance in highs and lows improved but wasn’t as great as what t b and the media and her fans are hyping. that 1 second rape was used too much to promote kate and the series.

        by all means, raymond’s performance last year wasn’t among the best and audience knows it. that’s why better actors such as kenneth and wayne winning the votes with their success in on call and confidant. michael miu and ben wong overshadowed raymond in highs and lows yet they are not nominated at all.

        The control is the key, 939393. If you have worked, maybe you will know more about fight in office where the more powerful person can control the situations. Just need 5/9, its a clear win. In case there is more than 2 options, just need 3 or 4/9 also can win. 620’s position is lower than Cat Tsang and Sandy Yu and Mona Fong left Txb, so 620 cant control the Txb polls. But it doesnt mean she cant do anything or not having any retaliation. Its proven that her faves are having an eye out of Txb.

        But you seems to agree that these executives control all, rite? So its all politics.

        @Fox: I am aware of office politics. But there are certainly reasons that the remaining execs are not siding anybody. By doing so, it implies that they are impartial to any party.

        The rest of the executives sided on who, didn’t the result last year show us clearly? Was it coincident that most of the winners (except Kate who tranfered from Cat Tsang to 620 long ago) are under Cat Tsang? 620 lost the game, and being pushed to TVBC in China.

        This year, it’s clearer. TITS 2 – the biggest stuff of Tommy Leung, was said to be an ani series but ended up in summer. WAB 2 with 620’s Moses, April. Which is for the ani? Wayne, MM, Ruco – Cat Tsang’s ppl. Where are 620’s ppl? In China, filming Chinese series (Ron with Woman, Bosco with Detective Dee, KC with Hua, LF with Lu Xiao Feng). Next, we won’t have to mention of 620’s ppl. But I dun think 620’s ppl will feel upset because they are having real money, so they leave the Txb world to Cat Tsang’s ppl. It’s reasonable because Cat Tsang’s ppl can’t earn as much as 620’s ppl, even in Txb, so Cat Tsang has using all means to promote them at max, including giving them awards in order to make their CVs look better.

        If you’ve forgotten, last year’s tv king and queen’s results were based on public polls. I dont think it’s a ‘coincidence’ as most people thought that their win was justified and well-deserved.

        TITS 2 being aired in summer is a great timeslot as the series is also based on travelling which is suitable for the season. As for WAB2, moses is not the only lead in the series. In fact, he is also leading alongside Wayne in the Love Firm. It’s obvious who’s on 620’s side, but how would you know who’s on Cat Tsang’s side? seems like you’re making things up to justify their wins in the awards. Supposed that you’re correct, the people you’ve mentioned are better and more respected in terms of acting, and even though they may not be given awards in tvb, there are so many platforms who have given them awards. are you also saying that tvb has control of the other platforms? 620’s people, on the other hand, with an exception of a few, are only regarded as idols. Even though they are making big bucks, but money is not a sole requisite of being successful. As artiste, do you think they want people to regard them as true artiste with brilliant acting/singing skills, or just a mere idol?

        A public poll that result is never revealed by Txb, although ppl questioned on it =)). Like said, if it’s really transparent, why they dun dare to show the amounts out with the affirmation of the counting company?

        And a scriptwriter of Txb said that Wayne knew he’ll win before it was given. Another worker of TVB said the same thing.

        I said even before the award last nite that I have never believed in Txb’s polls.

        Is it that hard to know who is under Cat Tsang’s side? Haha =)). Read more tabloids and compare it with the fact :P. Cat Tsang’s fave are as obvious as 620’s, even clearer. Txb has a hand on AOD and StarHub, it’s confirmed.

        Who is respected with better acting, it’s an endless argument but the payment and invitation from other companies out of Txb are a better way to consider the amount of fame they had. May I ask you that why the other companies are willing to pay for 620’s faves more if they are merely idols and can’t attract the audiences? To an artist, the most important thing is that they can grab more attentions from the audience, which will bring them fame. A super talented one but can’t show it out, is still lacking “something”.

        For example: I don’t think of MM’s acting as superb. He isn’t bad, but still overacting many times. But I know you disagree with me. It’s our different views and I have no matter with it. However, comparing MM to Bosco (I use Bosco because they were from the same S4), Bosco has more attentions from the audiences and companies, hence Bosco, although dun have any award last year, is still putting in higher status than MM. Bosco may lose to the award of Txb, but he dun lose the fame.

        Btw, FYI I dun think of any under 620 as an idol, because they are all too old to be idol. Even with girl I dun really like the acting like Linda, she isn’t an idol nor going in idol route. For Cat Tsang’s ppl, I only think Wayne’s acting is good (although he is getting monotone), Ruco I don’t watch much, don’t judge, MM, like I mentioned above, is just so-so. Cat Tsang’s ppl combination, in my opinion, isn’t any better than 620’s ppl in term of acting.

        what a joke fox. so now you’re cleverer and want to save raymond from being disputed and now use bosco. too bad you got your facts haywire! where in the world is bosco more popular than ma ming? bosco got no awards from hk federations filmmaker or astro favourite actor unlike kenneth! audience favourite my foot! he lost all polls to kenneth! jaynestars poll alone is proof of it! bosco is a piece of crap that cheated on myolie and flirt with kate in public! kenneth is a diamond bachelor! now you can see who’s the audience favourite! kenneth won by a mile.

        even if you pit kenneth against raymond, so easy to counter attack back since raymond is just an idol. now his focus is more towards dating than improving his craft. too bad.

        Oh please, just because you look better, have more fame and fans, make more money, you are considered idol? Then I think all artists would want to be an idol. LOL
        The ability to attract audience is a “talent” that every artist, if they want to survive with this career, need to have, must have, and it is the hardest “talent” to achieve. If you cannot attract as much audience and gain as much fans as others, just look at yourself and see why you’r not good enough and try to improve yourself, don’t just say: Oh, they’r idols! They have more fame but I’m still better, I don’t need fans because I’m a decent artist. It’s just no more but a sour excuse.

        idol is meant for those lacking talents but having screaming fans who idolizes their looks and image. real actors or singers don’t need to sell merchandise of their so called image to fans, but idols always do this. wayne is a real actor, kenneth is growing to be one, but raymond and his stagnant mediocre boring acting and idol based singing career fits the idol image.

        Haha, if compare LF to MM, and saying that LF is an Idol, MM is not, then I think Idol must have positive meaning. It means that you have more people recognize your talent, more people think that you’re handsome, more people want to see you perform and pay for your performance. LF fanbase is much larger than MM, it means that LF will have more people telling him that he’s a great artist who can act, can sing, and willing to buy his albums, support his work, which give him more and more money. With such quality, I bet MM would long to be an Idol like LF, but too bad, he can’t. Poor MM, 500,000 RMB per ep and 60,000 RMB per ep is really a big gap!

        I didn’t use LF because I want to save face for MM, Sel_fi_wu. The gap between LF and MM are even bigger and clearer.

        Bosco didn’t win anything last year, dun have Astro, dun have Txb, dun have HK Filmmakers, but he has the invitations from movie and Chinese series with high price, including lead role in Detective Dee which is a blockbuster one. LMAO~, maybe Bosco are laughing at the awards because he has the more reality things: Fame and money.

        Comparing: Mr “super famous” MM is paid 40k/eps only, equal to 1/6 of Bosco, 1/12 of LF. In Txb, the amount isn’t any better. MM: 6k/eps, Bosco: 18k/eps, LF: 30k/eps. Haha, it’s the price. Saying about fame: MM was invited to be supporting in a small budgeted China series, no film invitation. Bosco and LF: Big series, big film invitation.

        And please look again to see who is having a serious relationship and who is involving in many girls at the same time.

        If you don’t idolize him for these things, then you lied before about the handsomeness and good image? In other word, in your mind he is fugly and bad image? Haha.

        you believe in all the episode fees rumours? never confirmed by tvb all are rumours. besides it’s unfair because kenneth only get his breakthrough last year. give him a few years and he will make it above them all be tvb’s first brother before raymond and bosco can!

        laughing at what? bosco is well known to all as myolie’s cheating boyfriend who has rumoured affairs with tiffany tang, liu yan, kate and latest stephy qi! who has relationship with many women? all kenneth’s rumoured girls denied except rebecca who sounds jealous and carat who openly declares her crush at kenneth! kenneth only confirmed his relationship with nancy and one mystery woman!

        kenneth isn’t at idol age and his acting power has been acknowledged. tommy leung holds the power for tvb stars to go to movies that’s why he only push his favourites. it’s open secret too that 620 help raymond secure the movie contracts he has with raymond wong! kenneth doesn’t have this connection!

        You always can make me laugh, Selina, ah no, because having to call you Sel_fi_wu since someone else is using your Selina username (and you seem to be angry at max for that incident). Hope that incident can make you understand and you can stop using more than 1 account from now on.

        Even if letting down the fee, how about the fame? Lolz, why the producers of big series dun invite your MM? Haha. Connection? Even with connection, you think Txb can force the movie companies to cast artists they dun want as lead? Shaw Brothers movie might relate to Tommy Leung, but the other movies, Tommy Leung can push them to the list of lead? In MM’s case, Cat Tsang mama dun help him to receive movie, or she helped but the producers dun admit? Ah it isn’t confirmed by Txb LMAO~.

        Bosco only admitted with one gf, and MM is bigger, with 2 gfs. This round, MM wins =)). Bosco has rumours with 4 girls, MM with 4 girls, Bosco’s girls are denying, MM’s girls are denying, a draw. But since MM won with the number of gfs, the “cherry blossom” award MM crowned.

        I’ll give your MM time, dun be worried. Let’s see how big that guy can make :P. By now, I only can see a route of him as a Txb actor with the best achievement is the Txb Best actor award. Can’t go further. But at first, he must improve his acting and be less pouting.

      No. This year’s TV Queen will be Fala. TVB’s plan is for Fala and Myolie to fight for it from July (Triumph 2) to December (RB3 vs Will Power). They even arranged for Beauty at War to air early so Sheren and Ada has lower chance.

      tv queen will be the race between fala, linda and myolie. rumours are that linda’s brother’s keeper will air in july together with triumph2.

      tv king should be between wayne, kenneth and ruco.

        Moses is good in acting some atypical roles. He is not good in comedies or love-story drama series. I liked him the best in “When Heaven Burns”

    not really lookin forward to any of them…they’re all retreads of old material. and triumph in the skies 2 is retarded. why did they kill myolie’s zoe character and bring her back as someone else? people wanted to see that myolie-francis pairing. dumb.

    • Sel_fi_wu replied:

      at least it gives myolie a fresh and challenging tomboy maintenance role. she’s too mature now to be the lively zoe. i love her fresh new role.

      Hippocratic 2 should be good. the theme never gets old and it will be great to see kenneth in his doctor’s gown again!

    My favourite actress is Sheren Tang. She is not good in every single role (such as character with a very weak personality) though. I look forward to watching her new drama series, “Beauty at War”, which may be her last TVB drama series for a while. Will surely miss her.

    I like Ada Choi too. She is also a good actress, and it will be her last TVB drama series for the time being.

    TVB would rather promote their new fadans who cannot act than to hire those good actresses to film drama series for them. After all, new fadans are a lot cheaper and will bring them more profits. It is just sad for the audience.

  11. Hannah says:

    Well, airing Beauty at War early will only help TVB’s contracted fadans to win. Maybe Sheren might pull another “RB effect” or Ada will have a lot of noise. Who knows?

    • sandcherry replied:

      Why should TVB promote Sheren Tang and Ada Choi as they will likely not film any more drama series for TVB in the near future? If TVB airs “Beauty at War” around the Anniversary time, their acting will easily beat those new fadans’. Therefore, TVB wants to air “Beauty at War” in April and hopes that Hongkongers will most probably forget about it by November 2013.

    I’m just really looking forward for On Call 36 Hours II and I’m going to root for Tavia, Kenneth, Mandy Wong, Benjamin, and Him Law. The first one is so good. I’m not sure of Lawrence Ng cuz I don’t like the “Healing Hands III” or any of the before series at all. The whole series really sucked and was pretty dull. I hope he doesn’t change the really anticipated “On Call 36 Hours II” at all.
    I kinda look forward to see Triumph in the Skies II. I never saw the first one because, I was really young and stuff. So, yep. But, according to the cast, it’s really amazing with the strong casts, like Francis Ng, Julian Cheung, Myolie Wu, Ron Ng, and Fala Chen. It’s probably gonna be great. 🙂

    How about “Detective Columbus” with Wayne Lai and Nathalie Tong? When it will be aired? does anybody know? I am looking for this series, “love firm” and the ” rosy business.” I think Wayne Lai has the highest chance to win TV king one more time this year and if he win, it is not surprised for me because he is always a great actor.

    What about the Linda/Ruco/Edwin/Kristal series? I was thinking that there was a big chance for that to be an anniversary series to help boost Linda.

    • jayne replied:

      AC,
      Producer Amy Wong’s series has been favored to be Anniversary material. Her biggest hit was the “Burning Flame” franchise and nothing since seemed to match up to their success. “Brother’s Keeper” may be an interesting series, but this year may not be Linda’s chance to win Best Actress yet.

      Based on Kate’s recent projects, such as starring opposite Dayo Wong and her entry into films, Kate comes across as more highly promoted than Linda. Fala may have a chance in “Triumph in the Skies 2” as well, as most media coverage for the drama centered on Fala rather than Myolie. The same may be said of their respective screen time in the drama due to the romantic pairings.

      • sandcherry replied:

        I think Myolie Wu will be more highly promoted in “Rosy Business 3” and not in “Triumph in the Skies 2”. Fala Chen may turn out to be the one in TITS 2.

        Yeah , Linda still not yet has the chance to get best actress award . Maybe most favorite actress 🙂

      • AC replied:

        Fala was the big contender for Best Actress against Myolie, and Kate was pushed up when it was her vs Tavia, so I was just thinking that they would push up Linda as a big competitor this year. Not saying that Linda should definitely win, but she has a successful music career and got that advertisement award so I would think they would want to push her up even more.

        brother’s keeper rumoured to air during summer along with triumph2. there has been lots of hype and coverage from news so far about this series and the ruco and linda love story. i think tvb is prmoting linda as a contender for tv queen.

        Frankly, I felt that her win for the Curse of the Royal Harem was not worthy. She is better at playing comedies. That being said, I think that each fadan has different strengths.
