“Kids’ Lives Matter” Set for October 18 Release

After eight months of post-production editing, Kids’ Lives Matter <星空下的仁醫> will finally premier soon! Starring leads Kevin Cheng (鄭嘉穎), Kenneth Ma (鍾嘉欣), Him Law (羅子溢) and Catherine Chau (周家怡), the drama is set for an October 18 release as TVB’s anniversary drama this year! 

Scheduled to take over from The Linewatchers <把關者們>, the medical series is one of the most anticipated productions of the year, with a noteworthy cast and six key highlights: 

1. Kevin vs Kenneth 

Kevin and Kenneth to headline the drama

Leaving TVB for three years, Kevin Cheng took on the project in a freelance capacity, while it is also his first-ever doctor role. He will have scenes opposite another Best Actor winner – Kenneth Ma, who plays a pediatrician with an IQ of 160, who has an ambivalent character. Watch out for the sparks between the two, who are good friends in real life. 

2. Linda Chung’s Comeback Role 

Linda will pair up with Kevin.

Having relocated to Vancouver after marriage, Linda will also be back after three years of absence, portraying an independent and courageous pediatrician. Viewers can look forward to her fresh pair-up with Kevin as the two will have a romantic arc. Since the actress is now a mother of two herself, we sure hope she turns up a more heartfelt, authentic performance as she cares for young patients onscreen. 

3. Catherine Chau Is In It Too!

Finally!

After clinching a Best Supporting Actress nomination at Hong Kong Film Award for her role in Project Gutenberg (無雙), Catherine finally gained recognition after years of acting. It has been eight years since her last drama at TVB.

4. First Pediatrics-themed Production

Children and their care needs will be the focus

Helmed by Forensic Heroes VI <法證先鋒IVproducer Ben Fong (方俊華), this is the first pediatrics-themed drama. The child stars featured are all full of innocence, while sick children with various ailments will bring out touching plot developments that tug at heartstrings. 

5. Medical Team Consulted on Realistic Set

Realistic set

With the help of professional doctors during the filming process, special attention was paid to the details of the operating theater and emergency scenes. Hospital beds and operating rooms were also accurately rendered to make everything appear as realistic as possible. 

6. Young & Veteran Supporting Actors   

Veteran actors and fresh faces join the cast

In the drama, Him Law, Mimi Kung (龔慈恩), Florence Kwok (郭少芸), and Gabriel Harrison (海俊傑) portray medical professionals. New dad Him turns up a more layered performance in his role as the son of dean of the medical academy (Mimi Kung). Hope, expectations, and conflict will all be part of mother-son pair’s relationship, giving viewers much to anticipate! A team of up-and-coming actors, including Arnold Kwok (郭子豪), Regina Ho (何依婷) and Bowie Cheung (張寶兒) will also be part of the cast, giving viewers more to look forward to onscreen.

  1. It is funny how they always take a picture of Kenneth with his mouth slightly open. ^o^ I am not super keen on this series cos seeing sick children makes me sad (I see enough sick kids at work already T_T) but will get my dad to watch it first and see how it turns out. I might watch it over the Christmas break if it is not too depressing.

  2. With a title like that, I’m not sure how I’m supposed to take it seriously. I just finished Hospital Playlist 2 and if this series is quarter of that series’ depiction of pediatric dept, I will say decent job. But I know it won’t be. Like that k drama I doubt all these super efficient non human doctors will ever be depicted as killing a patient which happens in a doctors career. They will all be super amazing. They will drink wine. They will go to pubs and what nots and eat steak. They will cry, etc. This series is not for me because I know typical of tvb it will be pretentious, overbearing, unrealistic, no plot, no purpose and no direction. And not with an undignified English title like that.

    1. Speaking of Playlist 2, i read somewhere Mi do will actually showcase her singing in the last episode…so i waited and waited but it didnt happen! Ok, maybe a verse but SIGH…

      i wont even bother to watch this new TVB show. TVB used to produce shows for global audiences but now everything is just for China market….bleah

  3. Can you imagine bringing up a title like this to a friend? “Hey, there’s this new TVB show that’s really good!” “Really? What’s it called?” “Kids’ Lives Matter.” LOL. Even if it’s good, it’s so cringey to just say the title let alone recommend it. I think TVB can come up with very clever and catchy titles like Life After Death, Gun Metal Grey, The Exorcist’s Meter… What happened to this one and Barack O’Karma?!

    I’ll tune in for the show even if it’s not my type of drama and might end up being overly-dramatic and sappy.
