Next week, Lawrence and Jacky will fly in from China to promote the new series in Hong Kong .
Heroes of the Law will be broadcast during the airing of TVB’s Beauty Knows No Pain <女人最痛>, which stars Michelle Yim Mai Shuet, Maggie Cheung Ho Yee, and Joyce Tang Lai Ming. Heroes of the Law is produced by Gary Tang Tak Hei, who formerly worked for TVB and created Files of Justice. On his blog, Gary openly admitted that no one watches ATV dramas. Afterwards, Gary explained that he was referring to his promotional clip at the time.
TVB Deputy Director of External Affairs, Tsang Sing Ming said that TVB was confident about their series and was not concerned about the coinciding broadcast of Heroes of the Law.
