TVB’s new crime thriller Line Walker <使徒行者> premieres on August 25. Produced by Man Wai Hung (文偉鴻), the 31-episode series features Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Raymond Lam (林峯), Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Sharon Chan (陳敏之), Benz Hui (許紹雄), Elena Kong (江美儀), Sammy Sum (沈震軒), Oscar Leung (梁烈唯), and Toby Leung (梁靖琪).

Chief inspector of Hong Kong’s Criminal Intelligence Bureau, Cheuk Hoi (Michael Miu), remains suspicious over his close colleague’s mysterious death. Adding to the enigma, he discovers that the five undercover agents who were in constant contact with his dead friend have all vanished. Since the agents possess top secrets relevant to the police force and society’s safety, Cheuk Hoi is determined to find them for some answers.

The first undercover agent Cheuk Hoi encounters is Ting Siu Ka (Charmaine Sheh), who appears to be the owner of a foot spa parlor. Siu Ka hopes to restore her true identity, and thus agrees that she will infiltrate the triads. She deliberately gets close to a popular member of a gambling group, Sit Ka Keung (Raymond Lam). The two later develop a whimsical relationship based on lies and deceit.

Just as Siu Ka is about to unravel the hidden truth, Cheuk Hoi suddenly orders her to halt the operation. Mok Sin Yan (Sharon Chan) from the Independent Commission Against Corruption bureau intervenes in the case instead. Cheuk Hoi is then introduced to Sin Yan’s elder sister, Mok Sin Ching (Elena Kong).

At the same time, the head of the triad group, Tam Foon Hei (Benz Hui) is released from prison. His assistant, Lin Ho Kan (Sammy Sum), catches Cheuk Hoi’s attention with his many tactics. Soon enough, the police and triad members are entangled within their game of cat and mouse in the fight for justice.

    Two words: boring, cliché. Why does TVB insist on making dramas with the same old predictable storyline? Charmaine will not save this series and neither will Raymond. Dry dry dry!!!

      Totally agree and as we can see TVB is truly running out of ideas. Maybe they think the big fans that go for the cast will watch this series regardless of how redundant the storyline is.

    Has Benz Hui played a villain before? Or a good one at that? As I always see him play a comedic role.

      He has played a villain many times before. Another that I remember is in the series about Shui Hu Chuan made in the 80s. He played a really bad person who continuously betrayed his friend. He was a bad guy in the Flying fox of Snowy mountain too. He was a villain many other times too but I do not remember them all. Basically he is a great actor who is versatile.

        but he has played too many comedy roles the last decade that i cant forget his comedian aura. moreover he really doesnt look like a triad boss,lee ka ding was a better choice i think.

    The higher the expectation, the greater the disappointment. The casts looks promising, hopefully the plots are exciting too.

    Oh great, the infamous emo-chok Raymond is back! *rolls eyes* I had high hope for him as Happy Sir but he turned freakishly emo and one-note. Bleh. Double ugh for another madame-cop-high-sup-Sharon. She was so horrible in Ultimate Addiction. As always, I like Michael and Charmine so I’ll give this series a try. But I’m going in with low expectation so hopefully I’ll be pleasantly surprise *crosses fingers*

    I also agreed with a few posts up about Benz Hui. He’s a good actor, but I can’t get the comedian image of him either xD

    I’ll be surprised if this drama hits over 30. Even MClub failed to gather high ratings with such a promising script.

    But, this is Raymond’s last drama so I’ll see it as a sign of farewell to him.
