“Overachievers” Synopsis

TVB Anniversary series Overachievers <名門暗戰> will premiere on November 3. The 30-episode modern day drama will star three-time TV King winner Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Raymond Wong (黃浩然), Edwin Siu (蕭正楠), Power Chan (陳國邦), Raymond Cho (曹永廉), Nancy Wu (胡定欣), Maggie Shiu (邵美琪), and Susanna Kwan (關菊英). Overachievers also marks the debut of Miss Hong Kong 2013 winners, Grace Chan (陳凱琳) and Sisley Choi (蔡思貝).

Unhappy about being under his father Elliot Yue‘s (岳華) constant and unreasonable control, Wayne is determined to break free from his family business to start up a company of his own. After many obstacles and failures, he receives help from Raymond, Nancy, and Edwin, and finally begins his cellphone application company. Desperate to prove to Elliot that he can become just as successful as him, Wayne prepares to confront his father on the business front.

On the other hand, Elliot’s second son, Raymond Cho, begins to lose his status in the family because of his idle and lazy personality. Taking advantage of this, Elliot’s second wife, Susanna, pushes her own biological son, Jason Chan (陳智燊), into becoming the company’s next successor. Although Susanna portrays herself as a loving wife, she is secretly conspiring to takeover the company for herself.

When Wayne finds out about Susanna’s scheming ways, he rethinks his relationship with Elliot and decides to team up with his uncle Power, Raymond Wong, as well as Maggie and her autistic son Fred Cheng (鄭俊弘) to fight against Susanna and take back Elliot’s business.

  1. i’m really excited for this too!! hope it won’t disappoint! and looking forward to seeing fred play the autistic role!

    1. I was thinking the exact same thing! It would be interesting to see how Fred will handle this role because not everyone deals with it well! 🙂

  2. sound good! cant wait! the poster kinda remind me of ‘The gem of life’

    1. i had the same thoughts and Susanna playing the scheming second wife again.

      1. Well, Susanna is great in snappy mean roles. Hope she sings the theme song. however, i feel sad that maggie is playong fred’s mum. Maybe her character had a kid at fourteen or something.

      2. sounds to me like recycled crap, been there done that. Never liked MR or HOG. Family feuds over money is so old school and boring to the max!

  3. Seems interesting hope the story line don’t lag like all that is better sweet

  4. Wow! Amazing casts! Looks like another huge budget series. Definitely will be a highly rated drama to say the least.

  5. omg cant waitfor this! sounds like a remix of Heart of Greed!

  6. So I’m guessing that Wayne and Maggie will be a pair and Raymond and Nancy will also be a pair?

  7. Am I the only one who feels like the story is quite dull and with no wow factor ? It sounds like a storyline recycled by tvb, taking bits and pieces from scheming family dramas in the past. However, it is an amazing cast, I just hope they don’t force the focus too much on the newcomers throughout the series like they always do nowadays to promote them…

    1. I agree with you… It sounds like other storylines tvb has used before

  8. Power’s hairstyle was the only thing that caught my attention.

  9. Looks good!!

    I love Elliot Yue’s attire.. it’s so classy!

    About Wayne’s hairstyle.. ummm.. I have no comments.

  10. It sounds okay but put off by new Miss HK “actresses.”

    1. yeah, i wish they weren’t in here. they seem to have pretty heavy roles

  11. Wow. Chinese Richie Rich fights to win back family pride and riches. Riveting stuff.

  12. Looking forward to raymond and other support cast bored of Wayne good actor but never gives out anything exciting

    1. And Wayne over rated 1 BA was enough for him because it was really bout promoting him to tv king level the other 2 could have been given to raymond Wong and Steven ma

      1. Imo, Steven ma deserves it, not raymond wong. RW only knows how to talk at the top of his voice to show that he’s angry. His voice is otherwise just flat and dull. A good actor needs to act with his voice as well.

      2. Raymond Wong’s acting is good, but his voice is rather monotonous unfortunately.

      3. Raymond’s acting is good, but his voice is rather monotonous unfortunately.

  13. I was looking forward to this. Sounds so family uhhh. Wish it’ll be more friendship-centered or something and business-oriented since The Ultimate Addiction was so terrible.

  14. The girl acting as Wayne Lai in this series, does anyone know her name in real life? Been trying to google it but no luck!
