Did Wong Cho Lam (王祖藍) have a fallout with TVB managers, and decide to go to China to avoid the conflict?
It is rumored that Cho Lam had strongly advocated for Linda Chung (鍾嘉欣) to win Best Actress at the TVB Anniversary Awards, but female executives Catherine Tsang (曾勵珍) and Virginia Lok (樂易玲) were opposed. Disappointed with the results, Cho Lam allegedly did not want to further the conflict and will spending more time in China. He is intent on cementing his role as the middleman between Hong Kong artistes and the Chinese market.
At an event yesterday, Cho Lam clarified why he is spending more time in China. He has been busy handling multiple projects for TVB. There are collaborations with various platforms in China and will include music, acting, and live stream selling projects. He is also working on increasing their variety show and publicity opportunities. “Everything has been a whirlwind. I’ve been involved from creation to planning, and now we’ve arrived at the production phase. I invited a few TVB artistes to join me in China to learn and gain more experience.
“I want to thank TVB for continuously giving me the opportunity to try new things, and allowing me to have new experiences and breakthroughs in a management role. This year will be the 25th anniversary of the Hong Kong Handover, and it will be an important day. There will be more and more collaborations between TVB and China. Since I’m familiar with the market, it makes sense that I lead the team,” he said.
