Scriptwriter Chan Po Wah Courting Sheren Tang and Francis Ng for New TVB Series

CREDIT IF REPOSTED

Scriptwriter Chan Po Wah, whose works include "Blood of Good and Evil", "Fate of the Clairvoyant, "Return of the Cuckoo", "A Kindred Spirit", "Healing Hands II", "The Threat of Love", "The Threat of Love II", etc. will be returning to Hong Kong in October to begin pre-production on a TVB series that is expected to start filming next year.

Chan Po Wah: "The new series' theme is the multifunctional wife. The females nowadays feel that they are multifunctional wives. Due to the environment and the lack of economic qualifications, when a man is poor, he needs a multifunctional wife. However, when he has money, he wants more than one functional wife, which is four or five different types of wives".

Chan Po Wah: "If [Sheren Tang] is willing to star, the script will be tailor-made for her. If Sheren is the female lead, the best to complete the set is certainly Francis Ng; however, every role will only be confirmed after I return to TVB in October. Charmaine Sheh, Linda Chung, and Miriam Yeung are also suitable people".

When Sheren was asked whether she had already reserved her schedule, she said, "Have to match up in many ways. Now, still waiting to look at her script. (Do you know that you are playing a multifunctional wife?) I only know about it now that you have told me. She did not say it to me. I think that the theme is quite interesting. After filming 'The Family Link' with fraternal twins for two months back then, [I] hope that that type of labouriousness does not happen to me".

For Sheren to return to TVB, she only has one hope: "[I] will return to TVB on the condition that [I] am able to sleep". Sheren hopes to maintain 12 to 13 hours of work time, along with makeup, each day: "Not worried about not having a script when filming Po Wah's series because she does not sleep. Actually, the issue of filming with on-the-spot scripts definitely has an impact on the quality of series. I hope that this mechanical problem is not changed for Sheren Tang but for Hong Kong series. I actually have not forgotten about Hong Kong series; as long as all the conditions match up, would film immediately!"

"Insight" - Vincent Wong

心眼 《踩過界》 主題曲 - 王浩信

作曲/編曲: 朱俊傑
填詞: 張美賢
監製: 何哲圖/韋景雲

由信念沿路帶領 從迷霧裡找光明
步入最黑暗路程 人都沒有身影
尋遍現場沒見證 全憑直覺做反應
專心細意去聆聽 蒙著眼睛

*凡人用雙眼如何望見 心眼無從受騙
真相困於光源背面
害怕一串掛念 成為弱點 才伸手去剪
圍城內失散仍能遇見 感覺原來未變
還有力愛苦也是甜
別怕有些眼淚 模糊視線
情懷願似當天 塵埃未染 (平靜便看得穿 陽光未變)

誰仰望名利致敬 誰蒙住眼找公平
沒絕對黑白事情 其中界線不清
遊戲越難越好勝 全憑自信在感應
漆黑世界似無語 其實有聲

Repeat *(*)

"In Front of Love" - Stephanie Ho

愛近在眼前 《踩過界》 片尾曲 - 何雁詩

作曲/編曲: 張家誠
填詞: 張美賢
監製: 何哲圖/韋景雲

黑暗中 陪在身邊 不管現實多凶險
不怯慌 即使漆黑一片
很勇敢 還是瘋癲 酸苦辣也都是甜
拿來做留念 一起遮風擋箭

要自信一點 頑強一點 全力備戰
讚頌和掌聲 我也甘心在你背面

*#原來白天消逝 繁星天際 才看到光輝
有些不能忘的傷勢 我想得到你鼓勵#
隨著日子消逝 離開之際 才覺放不低
愛可溫柔彌補一切 最簡單仍然感覺美麗*

光線中 唯獨一點 即使就在你面前
閃呀閃 偏偏不知不見
很勇敢 還是瘋癲 今天在你的面前
同情或懷念 彷彿只差一線

雨霧和炊煙 浮雲翩翩 蒙著視線
我願每一天 無窮色彩共你發現

Repeat *

傷感都不會提 心聲漸被蒙蔽
沒有奢想足跡流傳萬世 唯獨期望住你心底

Repeat #

隨著日子消逝 曾經封閉 情節已開啟
渺小的仍然很矜貴 我都可平凡得最美麗

- 35 episodes long.
- The theme of the series talks about multi-generational relationships. There is family warmth and the topic of values.
- The theme is similar to "Iceman Cometh". The genre is fantasy. People of different generations have different morals, ethics, and values. A person from the 1940s, who was frozen and is not thawed out until 2018, has to adapt to the modern living environment, creating a lot of jokes and having a lighthearted side.
- Carlos Chan was experimentally frozen during the war of resistance against Japan; after getting thawed out in the modern times, he reunites with his son, John Chiang, and his grandson, Wayne Lai.
- Wayne will play a negative person who is facing a lot of societal pressure (work, economic, family, etc.), so he learns about feng shui. He and Elvina are husband and wife; they have a ten-year-old son.
- Patricia Ha will play Yung Chi Kiu (翁芷蕎), a star who has retired for many years and has left Hong Kong. She later goes into business. Later, she returns and has become a mysterious wealthy person. Her personality is rather bold, and her ideas are different from the average person. She is elegant, mysterious, and beautiful. When she was younger, she was a star who captivated everyone; however, her luck as a star was mediocre, and her career in the performing arts was unsuccessful. She has a cool and elegant appearance, but she is gentle on the inside. She has always longed for genuine love but has suffered setbacks in her love life. In addition, the matter of becoming an unwed mother of a daughter made her a selfish and possessive person. Experiencing ups and downs in life made her believe in fortune-telling. By chance, she meets Brunei royalty who falls in love with her and teaches her about investments, making her become a wealthy woman. After this, she becomes calculative about everything. When she returns to Hong Kong, for fame and fortune, her friends turn their backs on her. When she is basically left with nothing, her hidden maternal instincts make her cherish the familial love with her daughter even more. She and her elder sister, Chi Lan (芷蘭), rely on each other, having toiled all day to make a living when they were younger. When she was 18 years old, she successfully entered the entertainment industry as an actor, but she could not become popular, and everything was not turning out the way that she had wanted. In addition, her elder sister could not be depended on, rather having to constantly be taken care of by her, so her life back then became more and more stressful.
- Lin Xia Wei will play Aki Chong Si San (庄司·晨), a social worker. She is of Chinese and Japanese parentage. She and Carlos are a pair. Patricia is her aunt.
- Elvina will play a positive person. She is a Shanghainese girl. She is Wayne's wife. Her mother is Helen Ma.
- Joel Chan will play Ka Cheuk Ban (賈綽斌), a CID. He is a warm guy.
- Kandy Wong will play an enthusiastic social worker. She has a romantic storyline with Joel. She and Lin Xia Wei are besties.
- Koo Koon Chung will play Helen's husband.
- Maggie Yu will play John's wife.
- Russell Cheung will play Liu Sui Hei (廖水喜), a feng shui master.
- Momo Wu will play Chan Suet Ngor (陳雪娥).
- Keith Mok will play Tai Man Ho (戴文豪).

Personal Note: Thought that Carlos would be playing a supporting role....

Lin Xia Wei no longer playing Patricia's daughter, or is there some kind of birth secret storyline?

當天的苦 當天的慘敗 在腦內循環
心中抑鬱 心中的傷痕 誰讓我去剖白

誰人奪去我平淡 才情願不惜代價
誰害怕 拿來籌碼 全也 賭下

誰也共我對立 無人分擔
拿開昨天一切 忘掉牽掛
如要十倍奉還 其他已經不可由我揀
只有後悔在夜闌

行到絕嶺懸崖 無人支撐

今天的狠 今天的辜負 沒有力奉還
偏偏啞忍 失守的關頭 仍沒有去表白
