“ICAC Investigators 2014” to Feature Raymond Wong and Ruco Chan
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 Robin, Terry 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.
