Liza Wang Tells Eric Tsang to Diversify TVB Programs
Eric Tsang (曾志偉) and Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) have returned to TVB in managerial roles, and Liza Wang (汪明荃) has something to say.
Attending a Lunar New Year event, Liza expressed her excitement about the news of her former colleagues returning to TVB. She hopes that their return can give TVB new blood, new changes, and more diversity. “I’m more than happy to try out new things,” said Liza.
With a plethora of new food shows having premiered last year, Liza said TVB’s programming has been too stale with a lack of diversity. Asking if she hopes that Eric’s return as a TVB executive could eliminate TVB’s production “camps”, she said, “I don’t know how to answer that, but I can understand why one would stick to their own team. However, I hope that [Eric] will use this opportunity to discover new talents. Let there be free expression.”
As for TVB executive Sandy Yu (余詠珊), who was at one point was rumored to be in discord with Eric, stated that Eric was pleased with her proposals in a meeting about TVB’s upcoming plans, and she herself is ecstatic to have Eric as her new boss. She agreed with Liza about TVB’s recent programming being too mellow and unoriginal, but added that the pandemic could have been a reason behind the lack of creativity.
