Line Walker <使徒行者> sets a new boundary for undercover cop thrillers. The TVB drama stars critically acclaimed actors such as Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Raymond Lam (林峯), and Elena Kong (江美儀).

Chief Inspector Hong Do Hang (Au Sui Wai) of the Criminal Investigation Bureau dispatched five undercover cops to infiltrate various triads in the city. However, Hang later passed away and the police lost contact with the undercover cops. Official police records of these cops were wiped out. Hang’s partner and good friend, Chief Inspector Cheuk Hoi (Michael Miu), decides to locate all five of these undercover agents and save them from the triad world.

From a clue left behind by Hang, Hoi finds his first undercover Ting Siu Ka (Charmaine Sheh). Siu Ka owns a pedicure spa as a cover-up and her initial mission was to infiltrate an illegal bookmaking organization and collect evidence of its misdeeds. In dire need of help, Hoi sends Siu Ka out on a second mission – to find the remaining four undercover cops. Through their collaboration, Siu Ka and Hoi become close friends.

To complete her mission, Siu Ka goes against all odds to befriend Bao Seed (Raymond Lam), a rising star within the triad. Through Bao Seed, Siu Ka meets his big boss Tam Foon Hei (Benz Hui), who was just released from prison. Kobe Lin (Sammy Sum) serves as Foon Hei’s young financial expert. With the help of Siu Ka, Bao Seed rises even quicker in the triad ranks. Through Siu Ka’s information, Hoi learns that Bao Seed and Kobe may also be the undercover cops who were sent to infiltrate Foon Hei’s organization by Hang.

Suspicious with Hoi’s fast promotion within the force, ICAC officer Mok Sin Yan (Sharon Chan) has been keeping Hoi’s record on check. She has been secretly investigating him since the death of Hang. Hoi, aware that Sin Yan is monitoring him, checks on Sin Yan’s investigative methods. In his attempt, he accidentally discovers a dark family secret – Sin Yan’s elder sister, Katie Mok (Elena Kong) has been suffering physical abuse from her husband for many years.

Line Walker is slated to premiere in Hong Kong on August 25.

    Sharon as an inspector again? Cop roles don’t suit her! And her character sounds kinda like in Ultimate, lol

      Gawd, I hope she’s better in this one. She was so horrible in UA, ugh, sad.

        Agree she was really bad in UA. She has the constipated look when she’s angry.

      Looks too OTT dramatic to me with too many characters all pointing guns at each other that it seems unintentionally funny.

    after watching Black heart white soul which is very good
    not so sure if Line walker will be of the same standard with another cop
    thriller back to back. even thought he cast is good, have reservations about this.
    TVB should have rescheduled this

    Poster looks absolutely cheesy with everyone pointing guns at each other.

    • Mt replied:

      Except for Charmaine, who is pointing a gun at no one at all but is holding a gun for the sake of holding a gun simply because everyone else in the promo poster is holding a gun. Cheeztastic!!!

      • jj replied:

        @ mt: I thought the same thing about Charmaine! Lol. Buy I figure maybe because her char is suppose to be “purist” with no other hidden motive. Everyone is pointing their gun at someone’s back/behind except for her.

        I’m sure I might be reading too much into it though. It’s TVB, nothing really makes logical sense lol.

        Lol but well said; sums up perfectly this cheesy poster! If the poster’s already so crappy the drama’s probably not going to be much better. Love this new word “cheeztastic”!

    Oh by the way, spoiler: I’m pretty those five (Charmaine, Raymond, Sammy, Toby and Osacr) on the poster are the so called “lost undercovers”. Oh come on, what’s your he point making the synopsis all suspenseful with the undercovers identity unknown but then reveal them all on a freaking poster? Lol.

    • jj replied:

      I take this back, Toby isn’t an UC since she’s still a cop.

      SPOILER: the confirmed are Charmaine, Sammy, and Raymond.

    So now lead male in TVB left is Michael Miu? Since Raymond is leaving, Kenneth looks like he would drop a gun and Ron will be labeled as second lead forever.

    • Lol replied:

  12. OMG boring paring says:

    It will be a very typical boring paring!! Very cheesy poster. I’m not sure about Raymond playing a triad members. I think Rucco would be more suitable as a triad members!!!

  13. Funn Lim says:

    Story sounds good. Ultimate twist will be great if Michael is the mole!!

    ” In his attempt, he accidentally discovers a dark family secret – Sin Yan’s elder sister, Katie Mok (Elena Kong) has been suffering physical abuse from her husband for many years.”

    Now this came out of nowhere and irrelevant. I find Sharon’s character a surplus in the synopsis.

    • jj replied:

      Is Elena suppose to be Michael’s love interest? Maybe when he finds out, he helps her and sparks love.

      I agree Sharon’s character sounds unnecessary. They could have given Elena both roles as ICAC officer and an abused wife. I just can’t stand Sharon in UA and am afraid she might be the same in this one. Ugh, guess we shall wait and see…

      A random note: I read an article from another site talking about Sharon’s character being thrown into a trunk and they kept calling her by her long legs status, what’s that all about? Why is there an obession about her legs? I’ve heard/read that for awhile now…

    The promo poster is hilarious, It looks like Benz Hui is a priest or something.
    Too many guns made it funny looking. They need to tone it down and go back to the group shots that dont have guns.
    Really looking forward to this series, I hope it doesnt let me down.
    TVB has set the bar pretty low lately, I doubt it will be worse than I imagine it to be.
    I’m really only watching it for Michael Miu cause he never disappoints.
