Featuring some of Hong Kong’s most popular and acclaimed television actors, the ICAC-produced ICAC Investigators 2014 <廉政行動2014> is slated to hold its premiere event at the Grand Theater in the Hong Kong Cultural Center on March 26, 2014, one week ahead of its official television airing date on Saturday, April 5.

It is the tenth installment of the ICAC Investigator series and the fifteenth crime drama produced by Hong Kong’s Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) department, which was established by the Hong Kong government exactly forty years ago. The ICAC’s primary aim is to wipe out corruption among the Hong Kong government through law enforcement, prevention, and community education.

Co-produced by Tommy Leung (梁家樹) and Lo Heung Lan (羅香蘭), ICAC Investigators consists of five, 90-minute episodes. Each episode tells a different story arc and features a different set of cast members – Lawrence Cheng (鄭丹瑞), Tse Kwan Ho (謝君豪), Liu Kai Chi (廖啟智), Ruco Chan (陳展鵬), Raymond Wong (黃浩然), Vincent Wong (王浩信), Sire Ma (馬賽)Shirley Yeung (楊思琦), and Eddie Kwan (關禮傑) are some of the stars featured in the series. Acclaimed directors Alex Cheung (章國明), Dante Lam (林超賢), Teddy RobinTerry Tong (唐基明), Adam Wong (黃修平), and Herman Yau (邱禮濤) also helmed the direction of the series, which possesses cinematic appeal.

Each criminal case presented in the episodes is based on true events documented and investigated by the ICAC. The first episode – titled Comrade <戰友> – is based on a corruption case that occurred in Hong Kong’s public sector. The second episode, Spider <蜘蛛>, centers on a corruption case that happened in the architecture industry. The third case, Crazy for Wealth <財迷>, involves the investigation of a corruption and cheating scandal from a public company. Episode four Black Ball <黑球> will focus on a group of Hong Kong youths and their involvement in a rigged sports game. The final episode, Tomorrow <明日>, will deal with one of the Hong Kong public’s biggest concerns – the shortage of milk formula.

ICAC Investigators will air on  Saturday, April 5, 2014 on the TVB Jade channel.

      Liu Kai Chi did helped HKTV filmed a tv drama, but didn’t actually signed with them. He is a freelance artist. Glad that he’s back helping TVB

        Nvm I remember they filmed this a while ago last summer.I don’t think he’s actually back though this was most likely a one time thing. This is a collab with RTHK.

        @KrolXl

        This is in collaboration with RTHK, not the other way around. RTHK shows are often boring

      Well, technically this isn’t a TVB series — it’s a joint venture by RTHK and the ICAC. The reason TVB is involved is because they have the airing rights to the series (as they do with many of RTHK’s series). Most of the directors listed are movie directors, many of whom have been involved with the project for many years.

      So no, Uncle Chi isn’t ‘back helping TVB’…he’s a free lance artist who isn’t signed to any TV station, so he can actually film for whomever he wants.

      Same here. Star-studded and all, but it doesn’t interest me. It’s good that they’re trying to educate the viewers though.

      i’ve seen a couple of them and they seemed to be good to me. i also like the fact that it’s based on a true story (or so they say), but either way, i’ve always liked crime shows.

      The last ever TVB produce an ICAC tv-series was bad. Its all RTHK production for now on… it is so-so, leaning towards BOREDOM.

        I’m not really surprised, since the purpose of the mini-series is to EDUCATE, not to grab ratings or boost artists’ popularity. Think of it as equivalent to an extended public service announcement — to me, I see it as similar to watching the news….

        Doesn’t matter if the series is ‘boring’ to some — as long as it conveys the message it wants to convey, then it has done its job.

      One of the stories in the last installment depicted how an insurance agent scammed the insurance companies for a payout by paying poor mainland Chinese to blind themselves in one eye. It is based on a true story. That really drove a deep impression – how evil can mankind be just for material gains. The issue weighed in my heart for a while.

      The other stories were typically run of the mill corruption cases we read in the news. Most are based on true stories. Some people are driven to corruption because of greed. Some because of poverty. Guess it makes you take a hard look at social pressures.

    I like the ICAC Investigators series. There is one about the HK Fire Department too. Wonder if there is a new installment for that one?

      There’s also a series about people with disabilities (the series is called A Wall-less World) — it’s another RTHK produced series in collaboration with the HK Labor bureau as well as the United Nations. They’re up to season 4 now and many former TV artists participate in that series as well (if I remember correctly, the newest season had David Siu, Canti Lau, Eugenia Lau, etc. participating in various episodes). The series is a bit heavier than the other two about ICAC and Fire Department and the stories are quite heartwrenching, but the good thing is that it helps bring more societal awareness to people with disabilities and how we as a society can help them.

        Yes! I like A Wall-less World too. Unfortunately I only managed to catch one season of the series. Think there is one on the Correctional Service as well about prison inmates.
