TVB Producer Lee Tim Shing custom tailored lead role for Niki Chow Lai Kei in My Cruel Lover <我的如意狼君>. Since Niki’s former company, BMA, joined the Recording Industry Alliance and became part of the four major music labels in Hong Kong . Due to unresolved broadcasting rights between TVB and the four major music companies, there was contemplation as to whether Niki would be able to film for TVB.
With her BMA contract expiring at the end of January, Niki decided to end her contract early to film for My Cruel Lover. Tim Gor confirmed that Niki has signed with TVB, “I think it is a two-year artist contract.” (Were Niki’s terms astronomical?) “Of course not! The contract will be effective in February. Niki will be performing in the United States for a concert on February 2nd. On February 8th, Niki will have the costume fitting for My Cruel Lover.”

Jayne: Niki has always had favorable relations with TVB, so it is not a surprise that she signed a two year contract. I guess that means at least two Niki series per year. Who would you like to see her pair with? Raymond Lam would be nice as they match well physically.
I still think Niki acts best in romantic comedies.
