Michael Miu and Raymond Lam Fight Corruption in “The Apostle”

TVB’s upcoming crime thriller drama, The Apostle <使徒行者>, is currently in active pre-production. Produced by Man Wai Hung (文偉鴻), under the camp of executive producer Tommy Leung (梁家樹), The Apostle centers on a story about a large infiltration scheme between the Hong Kong police force and the underground triads. Inspired by the Hong Kong cop thrillers Infernal Affairs <無間道> and Cold War <寒戰>, The Apostle will heavily touch on the topics of both undercover agents and police corruption.

The Apostle will be headlined by Highs and Lows <雷霆掃毒> costars Michael Miu (苗僑偉) and Raymond Lam (林峯), the former portraying a corrupted cop, the latter portraying a triad member who infiltrates the police force. Sharon Chan (陳敏之) and Cheung Kwok Keung (張國強) will portray ICAC officers who are investigating Michael.

Originally produced to be the comeback drama for film king Tony Leung Ka Fai (梁家輝), the script for The Apostle had to be rewritten when Tony had to withdraw from the drama because of a rib injury. However, producer Man assured that though the story had to be rewritten, nothing major was changed and the screen time for its original cast members stayed the same.

Michael added that the story is still in its brainstorming stages. As The Apostle will not officially start production until January 2014, he hopes that at least 10 episodes will be finished by the time filming begins.

The 55-year-old expressed that he will be working with Sharon Chan and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) for the first time in The Apostle, but is not sure if his character will be romantically involved with the two lead actresses. He added that Sharon Chan is tall enough to match his height, but added, “I can rest my arm on other girls’ shoulders, but not her! That’s why she can only be my brother!”

      Ikr they should make Raymond the bad guy he might have a chance to win tvb king cause of this role. Raymond never played a bad guy before. But Kenneth Ma, Ron, Bosco, Samuel ,Tavia all have played a bad guy role before.

        A step in the past was a historian person and he wasn’t even just kinda wild/simple minded . And for Golden Faith he was a good person it was just that he was a bit stupid simple minded .

        I dont recall any difference from the baddie roles of those ppl you listed to those 2 roles in ASITP or GF. If you think Qin was simple minded in the end of such series, then I dont know how to define a villain role because the schemes are even better than BTROC or POG.
        For GF, yeah a stupid guy but still a villain.

        And if you count playboy as villain, perhaps his role in New breath of love is suitable. I dont know the role Han Yu Di has any villain aspect in it, since its trailer isnt clear. Hot temped has Ad Mania. Yeah, he has more interesting roles out of Txb.

        Yes. Kevin & Charmaine. That would be great! But does Kevin have the time for TVB series now that he had a production company? I hope he and Charmaine has a chance to pair up again whether in HK or Mainland China series.

      Charmaine paired up with Raymond in Drive of Life!

      Also this wouldn’t be the first time Michael worked with Charmaine, as they filmed Drive of Life together also.

        Raymond and Charmaine did pair up in drive if life.. To me it wasn’t one of the best pairing.. I do prefer her with Kevin cheng.

    the best ending they can do is have Raymond actually be the bad guy and Michael turn out to be the good.

    Yet another police show?? I love tvb’s police shows but I think this genre is a little bit over used lately. I’ll still be looking forward to this show though 🙂
