Previously claimed to be the sequel to 2009 TVB time traveling comedy, A Chip Off the Old Block <巴不得爸爸…>, Divas in Distress <巴不得媽媽…> features an entirely different cast and premise. Produced by A Chip Off the Old Block producer, Poon Ka Tak (潘嘉德), Divas in Distress brings back two of TVB’s top fadans of the 1970s, Liza Wang (汪明荃) and Gigi Wong (黃淑儀), to star in the 22-episode drama!
Also starring are veteran actors, Chung King Fai (鍾景輝), Chin Kar Lok (錢嘉樂), Mimi Choo (朱咪咪), popular duo Him Law (羅仲謙) and Mandy Wong (黃智雯), and newcomer, Eliza Sam (岑麗香).
Retired television actresses, Sheung Yeung Hung (Liza Wang) and Miu Sing Ho (Gigi Wong) can never seem to get away from each other. From competing for #1 sister thirty years ago, to being in-law families thirty years later, Hung and Ho are always trying to find ways to step onto each other’s shoes.
If it were not for the respect of their sifu, Fung Han Man (Chung King Fai), Hung and Ho would never cross paths again.
Ho’s son, Chong Ka Long (Chin Kar Lok) is Hung’s son-in-law. After her daughter died from childbirth, Hung always held a prejudice against Long. When Long begins to develop feelings for the wealthy news reporter Heung Nai Hing (Eliza Sam), his mother tried to convince Long to remarry, but the jealous Hung sabotaged their relationship.
On the other hand, Hung’s youngest son, interior designer Chak Yau Sing (Him Law), falls in love with Ho’s construction worker niece, Kwai Yi Hei (Mandy Wong). Not wanting her daughter’s tragedy to be repeated, Hung comes with ways to wreck their relationship, angering Ho once again.
Hung and Ho’s feuds are making things difficult for their sons and daughters, but what can they really do?
Divas in Distress is slated to premiere on Monday, August 27th in Hong Kong.
