Shaw Brothers’ “Flying Tiger 2” Still Has No Broadcast Date for Hong Kong
The spiritual sequel to Shaw Brothers’ first web series Flying Tiger <飛虎之潛行極戰> has already started airing in Mainland China, but the company still hasn’t decided on when it will start airing it in Hong Kong.
Starring the original cast members of 2018’s Flying Tiger, with new cast members including Hollywood actor Lee Pace, Flying Tiger 2 <飛虎之雷霆極戰> follows Hong Kong SDU captain Lok Ka-shing (Michael Miu 苗僑偉) who is investigating a powerful force that has infiltrated Hong Kong’s criminal organizations. He establishes the special “A Team”, assembled with the police department’s most elite fighters and intelligence officers, to eliminate the force.
Flying Tiger 2 features a large cast of TV and film actors, including Michael Miu, Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), Ron Ng (吳卓羲), Kenneth Ma (馬國明), Oscar Leung (梁競徽), Joel Chan (陳山聰), Kelly Cheung (張曦雯), Jacky Cai (蔡潔), Jennifer Yu (余香凝), Zoie Tam (譚凱琪) and Timothy Cheng (鄭子誠). It also features the comeback of Christine Kuo (苟芸慧) — her first TV drama since 2016’s E.U. <EU超時任務> — and Yoyo Mung (蒙嘉慧). Veteran actors such as Lawrence Ng (吳啟華), David Chiang (姜大衛), Dominic Lam (林嘉華), Pat Poon (潘志文), Michael Wong (王敏德), and Liza Wang (汪明荃) also star. Flying Tiger 2 also stars Hollywood actor Lee Pace in his Hong Kong television drama debut. Lee Pace is best known for portraying Ned in the TV series Pushing Daisies, Thranduil in The Hobbit, and Ronan the Accuser in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy.
Though the series has already premiered in China via Youku streaming on September 6, Shaw Brothers has yet to confirm an air date for the show in Hong Kong.
Originally scheduled to air at most a month after its original Chinese premiere, it appears that Flying Tiger 2 was planned for an October 2019 release via TVB Jade.
However, TVB’s current prime time line-up is full — TVB will be airing Finding Her Voice <牛下女高音> and The Man Who Kills Trouble <解決師> this October.
