Producers Mui Siu Ching and Lau Ka Ho Tempted to Leave TVB?
A recent wave of mass resignations at TVB became intense. TVB husband-and-wife team, Producers Lau Ka Ho (劉家豪) and Mui Siu Ching (梅小青), were rumored to be recruited by rival television station. One of the producers’ favored artist, Moses Chan (陳豪), regarded the duo as his parents. If the incident turned out to be true, Moses and Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) noted that they will be very disappointed!
Over the last three years, Lau Ka Ho and Mui Siu Ching produced series which won TVB’s Best Drama awards. No wonder mainland companies offered unbelievable prices in their attempt to recruit the duo! However, the condition was that Ka Ho and Siu Ching would need to join together! Siu Ching admitted that she received recruitment offers from mainland companies six months ago, with the poaching calls increasing more recently. Since Siu Ching was currently busy with work, she was still undecided over the matter.
Lau Ka Ho professed that he and his wife, Mui Siu Ching, were so busy they did not even have time to talk, “It is her birthday today, but we do not even have time to eat dinner together! We have an agreement that whether we stay at TVB or leave, we will do it together!”
Artists who worked with Producers Mui Siu Ching and Lau Ka Ho in the past did not want to see the duo leave. Although Moses Chan was confident in TVB, he would be disappointed if the duo left. “I started working with Siu Ching since Where the Legend Begins <洛神>. I consider the two of them to be my own parents!” On behalf of rumored girlfriend, Aimee Chan (陳茵媺), Moses clarified that she had no intention of leaving TVB.
Linda Chung also said that she did not wish to see Producers Mui Siu Ching and Lau Ka Ho leave TVB and hoped this was not the truth. Linda praised the duo for putting in their hearts and efforts in their work.
Ron Ng(吳卓羲) also expressed his disappointment, “No matter where they go, they will remain as good producers in my heart. However, I am not concerned about the quality of TVB dramas afterwards.” Evergreen Mak (麥包) praised Producer Miu Siu Ching for her hard-working ethics and approachability, who often worked until the middle of the night. Currently filming in Mongolia, Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) said that she did not pay attention to recent Hong Kong news, noting it was inconvenient to respond.
Numerous Artists React in Blogosphere
Recently collaborating with Producer Miu Siu Ching in Forensic Heroes 3 <法證先鋒Ⅲ>, Wayne Lai <黎耀祥> expressed his surprise. However, Wayne also wished her the best, “It would be a pity if the news were true. In her work, she often does everything herself. However, the most important thing is that she is happy at work.” Wayne sent his birthday wishes to Siu Ching yesterday, hoping that Forensic Heroes 3 will once again soar to great ratings heights. Fellow cast members, Maggie Cheung (張可頤) and Nancy Wu (胡定欣) also sent their birthday wishes.
Mui Siu Ching’s younger sister, Cutie Mui’s (梅小惠) TVB contract expired in March 2011. She noted that the sisters’ hearts were one, while joking, “If my sister loves TVB, I will love TVB. If she loves Now, I will love Now. If she loves Ricky Wong, then I can’t follow because he is already married!”

Jayne: Based on Producer Mui Siu Ching and Lau Ka Ho’s vague responses and saying that they will think things over seems to indicate that they might leave TVB. Also, the artists’ reactions are all very telling, as they are all willing to believe that the producers will leave.
