A wide variety of drama productions await Hong Kong viewers in 2014. Besides numerous TVB series to look forward to, HKTV will also be releasing several of its anticipated productions this year. Both stations will feature unique and creative plotlines aimed to grasp the audience’s attention.

Sneak Peek of Upcoming TVB Series:

Tiger Cubs 2 <飛虎II> (20 Episodes)
Starring: Joe Ma (馬德鐘), Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣), Oscar Leung (梁烈唯), Mandy Wong (黃智雯), Him Law (羅仲謙)

After the success of 2012’s Tiger Cubs, the sequel will further engage viewers in its action-packed scenes revolving around Hong Kong’s Special Duties Unit. Linda Chung delivers a fresh performance as a tough and reckless policewoman who is traumatized by her past as an undercover cop. Along with Joe Ma and Mandy Wong, the SDU team saves many victims from danger.

Inbound Troubles 5Inbound Troubles 2 <老表, 你好Hea!> (20 Episodes)
Starring: Roger Kwok (郭晉安), Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍), Joey Meng (萬綺雯), Angela Tong (湯盈盈), Ivana Wong (王菀之)

Comedies seem to be a success amongst viewers recently, boosting viewership ratings. Although this sequel features much of the same cast, there will be a new storyline with fresh pairings. With comedy king Wong Cho Lam as lead, the audience will be in for some hilarious moments.

M Club <女人俱樂部> (30 Episodes)
Starring: Flora Chan (陳慧珊), Carmen Lee (李若彤), Angie Cheong (張慧儀), Loletta Lee (李麗珍), Gloria Yip (葉蘊儀)

Produced by Eric Tsang (曾志偉), the series revolves around a group of former high school girls reuniting years later. The plot focuses on their friendship and growth, centering around a love for aerobics. The return of Flora Chan and several veteran actresses onscreen will create fresh new sparks of chemistry.

Vinegar Lady Myolie Wu ron NgVinegar Lady <醋娘子> (20 Episodes)
Starring: Myolie Wu (胡杏兒), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Him Law (羅仲謙), Alice Chan (陳煒), Eliza Sam (岑麗香)

This period drama reunites Myolie Wu and Ron Ng as a romantic couple. Myolie once again takes on a comedic role, which has been well-received in the past. With the central theme of polygamy, the series includes many scenes of women bickering in hilarious manners.

The Good and the Bad <忠奸人> (30 Episodes)
Starring: Roger Kwok (郭晉安), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Kristal Tin (田蕊妮), Jason Chan (陳智燊), Kiki Sheung (商天娥)

Here, viewers get to see Roger Kwok portray a physically disabled man for the first time. Collaborating with newly crowned TV Queen, Kristal Tin, the pair sparks fresh chemistry. Furthermore, Roger once again takes on the challenge of playing the ultimate villain, making the series an intense watch.

Sky Eyes <天眼>
Starring: Tavia Yeung (楊怡), Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Kenny Wong (黃德斌)

With an intriguing plotline centering around computer-hacking and advanced technology, this is no usual crime thriller. Tavia Yeung portrays an antagonistic female sniper with dissociative identity disorder. Kenny Wong is a police officer, while Ruco Chan is a technology expert. Their ultimate goal is to bring Tavia down.

    ” Their ultimate goal is to bring Tavia down.”

    Or fall in love with her, failing to bring her down.

    I am quite concerned with the tag “Comedy king” for Wong Cholam.

    I’m looking forward to Police Boundaries, Marvelous Century, and Tiger Cubs II. I really like action dramas. To be honest I wasn’t impress with the upcoming 2014 TVB dramas but that’s just me. :/

    • BearBear replied:

      You’re not the only. Not impressed but if I have to choose, Sky Eyes and Storm in a Cocoon. The Battle of Tomorrow story looks more promising that the rest of the TVB actually but it’s probably too serious and tearjerker for me to sit through.

    There are actually way more HKTV series already filmed or currently filming than what was listed. Except for the horror flick (Marvel Century) and the vampire idol series (Still Have Time to Love You Again), I’m pretty much looking forward to all of HKTV’s series. In addition to the ones already listed, I’m also looking forward to Flow of the Years (starring Ha Yu, Paw Hee Ching, Felix Wong, Leila Tong, etc.), Sky Net (which reunites Frankie Lam and Yoyo Mung), Night Shift (cop series filmed completely at night), Hakka Women (fresh pairing of Maggie Cheung with award-winning theatre actor Poon Chan Leung) and also the new series that Sunny Chan will be filming for them.

    On the TVB side, I’m pretty much only looking forward to Steven Ma’s new series and also The Good and The Bad because of Roger….the rest of the series don’t sound interesting at all….

    I anticipate more on TVB dramas,
    The HKTV series are so boring and too serious & heavy like documentaries (almost like mainland modern series B-O-R-I-N-G), probably their series are more suitable for film than dramas.

    Login or Register before you can reply to sheldon
    • llwy12 replied:

      Um, not exactly true….HKTV’s series actually cover a wide range of genres and are not just ‘serious and heavy like documentaries’.

      While HKTV’s series may not cover every single genre, there’s plenty of variety to satisfy various interests. For music fans, there’s the time travel series Second Life (which stars mostly singers and has a heavy music component to it – looking forward to the real-life concert segment in the series) as well as the musical Once Upon a Song (aka Fantasy Love Song). For those who prefer fast-paced cop series, there’s Borderline (aka Police Boundaries) as well as Nightshift (realistic cop series filmed 100% at night over the course of a month). For those who are dying to watch a horror flick (which HK audiences will probably never see on TV due to all the restrictions), there’s Marvel Century (which actually boasts a strong cast and interesting storyline, but I personally don’t like the horror genre, so probably not watching) and for the ones who prefer idol series, there’s that vampire series starring Taiwanese artist Danson Tang (the series billed as HK’s version of Twilight). For the more serious-minded who prefer the ‘heavy drama’ type series, there’s Flow of the Years (strong cast) as well as The Menu (that’s the news Media series starring Noelle Leung and Catherine Chau – the idea for a similar series was actually presented to TVB in the past, but they rejected due to its controversial nature). For a somewhat light-hearted female-centered series, there’s Hakka Women, which boasts the fresh pairings of Maggie Cheung and Poon Chan Leung as well as Prudence Liew with Savio Tsang. Those interested in supernatural series can watch Felix Wong’s detective series (Brain Opening Detective) while those who are interested in ‘end of the world’ type theme can look forward to the new series that was just announced a couple weeks ago (I think the series is called End of the World 360 or something like that). Those who are into computer technology / Internet can watch Sky Net – the computer-hacking themed series reuniting Forensic Heroes’ Frankie Lam and Yoyo Mung. As for comedy, there’s that school-themed series they’re currently filming (think Shine on You except with little kids and babies instead of high school students)…there’s also the one about service dogs for the blind, but not sure if they are actually going through with that one, since I haven’t heard anything else about the series recently. Oh and those looking for doctor-themed series, there’s Three Sides of Shape Doctors, which will feature real-life surgery scenes (the premise of the series sounds very similar to American series Nip/Tuck). Oh, almost forgot about the kung fu/action/comedy series starring Kara Hui (which already wrapped filming) and also the plan for another kung fu series starring Yuen Wah (haven’t heard updates on this yet).

      There are a couple more series that are in the planning stages currently and come March, more announcements will be made on upcoming series, so those interested in HKTV’s series should definitely stay tuned…. Those who are not interested in HKTV series — simple…don’t watch!

        I really admire HKTV for their passion to improve the HK television industry but frankly I wasn’t impressed with some of the first episodes they broadcasted from Youtube, the cinematography was a bit pretentious and the storyline was so-so. Nevertheless, I’m not going to let one episode make me lose hope on HKTV. Looking forward to their upcoming series!
