Info:

kuangaitvb
- 'Fixers' are 'people who secretly solve problems'; they travel between black and white, solving the problems that the two cannot solve. Chin Ka Lok, Timmy Hung, Mandy Wong, Tracy Chu, and Henry Lo are 'fixers' who work together. They do many illegal things, but go back on the right path in the end. The story is similar to a typical case-solving direction. They collaborate with the black and the white. The series will design detailed scenes, which are solved in the following episode.
- Chin Ka Lok will play Szeto Sam Ping (司徒心平), a crisis expert who solves problems. He, Benjamin Yuen, and Tracy are siblings (from the same mother, but a different father). After he returns home, he has a lot of friction with his younger brother; however, after getting along with his mother, who has dementia, he realizes that he has lost a lot in the family. He has a phrase in the series: 「屋企係最唔講道理嘅地方, 但屋企是最講親情的」.
- Mandy will play Lui Lui (雷蕾), a cool and decisive legal expert. She has a big secret, which is the fact that she killed someone before, but no one knows about it; at the time, Chin Ka Lok rescued her, so the two work together, even developing a relationship. She and Chin Ka Lok are a couple. She and Chin Ka Lok do not have intimate scenes, but there is a scene where they bathe together.
- Benjamin will play Mak Hang Chik (麥行直), a righteous Sergeant of the Organized Crime and Triad Bureau (OCTB). He is a family-oriented little man. For his mother, he looks for his stepbrother, whom he despises the most because Chin Ka Lok caused the two fathers' deaths. He is Rebecca Zhu's subordinate.
- Timmy will play Chan Tai Man (陳大文).
- Tracy will play Mak Ping On (麥平安), a computer hacker who has returned to Hong Kong from overseas. She likes stepbrother Chin Ka Lok, but does not like biological brother Benjamin because he frequently lectures and disciplines this rebellious younger sister. She does not appear until the tenth episode. Since she was young, she was already very bad, so her mother (played by Gigi Wong) sent her to the US, but she ended up learning to become a hacker. She and Timmy met in Las Vegas, and ended up having a one night stand after getting drunk, even getting a registration of marriage. She only finds out that she has suddenly become someone's wife after waking up from her drunkenness. She sees Timmy's unrestrained gambling at a casino, mistaking him for being a wealthy guy, so she decides to return to Hong Kong to look for him to get a divorce. After returning to Hong Kong, she finds out that Timmy is her eldest brother's right-hand man. The two do not get along with each other; however, in then end, at the most dangerous time, they discover that they are actually very matching. She frequently bullies Timmy. She and Timmy are a bickering pair.
- Gigi will play Szeto Yan Yan (司徒恩恩), who has dementia. She has forgotten cop son Benjamin, only remembering 'bad son' Chin Ka Lok, who ran away from home ten-plus years ago.
- Rebecca will play Chiu Tan Ching (趙丹青), a rookie detective. She is a new migrant. She and Mandy are at daggers drawn. She likes Benjamin, but does not dare to reveal her true feelings. She pursues Benjamin.
- Lulu Kai will play Man Ka Ning (文家寧), a member of the OCTB.
- Henry will play Bak Sun (白純).

May is such a long wait ... but looking forward to this for sure. Even though I didn't really like Him Law, but I think Mandy is capable in leading a series on her own. Tracy is also a impressive starter and Benjamin definitely can draw in fan girls, my sister is in love with him lol.

Another Him & Mandy series, not bad. Though I have a feeling those listed above are only supporting, the leads have yet to be determined.

I would actually be okay with seeing Mandy x Him lead and Ben x Tracy as 2nd lead. I think it's time to give the newer generation a chance to lead and I'm confident that Mandy will handle it well.

So I hope these 4 are our main characters and then others will be added on later.

Oh my, a series with Mandy-Ben-Him. This sounds so good. I like Mandy with either Him and Ben. Let's hope for a love triangle. But then there's also Tracy. Maybe a love rectangle. Looking forward to more news of this series.

Personally, I've been waiting for Mandy's lead chance for a long time, since last year, I already hope she get to lead a drama on her own. So I hope more news will come out for this series somewhere next year when they start it.
I don't really like how tvb treats her because apparently she's like Tavia Yeung, not favored by the higher ups/executives at all but both have extremely good audience fate so tvb have no choice but to promote them since audience likes to watch them act and producers like to cast them.

Basically, I find Mandy's acting path super duper similar to Tavia back in the old days, very similar really. both have to work extra hard compared to those in their batch who get big roles quickly. This is why I admire them both as an actress. I like artistes like that. Besides that, both also works extremely well with their romance partners. Most of Tavia's parings are successful and well liked, Mandy's ones are also similar right now.

I remember Tavia even have to let Linda, Kate climb above her head earlier in her career. Mandy right now is at this stage where Eliza, Priscilla climbs over her head in terms of status. These two has too many similarities ... which I can't find a point to prove that Mandy is not the successor of Tavia's.

^ yeah I feel the same way about Mandy, she definitely had to earn her roles , she has worked in TVB a little longer than Eliza or Priscilla to get a semi lead or lead role , not to take anything away from Eliza because I like her , she has potential but because she is very charming and charismatic , she got her roles faster and Priscilla I'm just neutral towards her, anyways I love this cast, hopefully it is the final cast, also its interesting that they added Louis Yuen, he's funny so I'm not complaining :D

Update
This series is still under planning according to TVB Baidu's latest list so the cast may change but chances are high they will remain since all are Producer Poon's commonly used artistes.

Personally I won't mind either Him-Mandy or Mandy-Benjamin or triangle ... or even rectangle plus tracy.
But I am leaning towards Mandy-Benjamin more because I personally don't quite like Him Law's personality.

And I find Benjamin's acting chops to be more convincing and prove to be more effective than Him Law these days.

whatever is the case, hoping for more confirmation.

Even if they have a rectangle, I think TVB would put Mandy and Him together because they're more popular with the audience. Ben will most likely end up with Tracy if this cast ends up filming.

^ yea since Him Law has higher status than Benjamin, it's almost a definite. I don't really mind either way though. Even though I don't really enjoy watching Him Law's acting but can't deny the fact that he has solid chemistry with Mandy Wong. He mentioned it himself during interviews too that Mandy is his best on screen partner. Benjamin also mentioned the same thing during the Astro interview too. Both guys place Mandy as #1 in their on screen partners ranking. Right anyway since both of them gets popular or receive their first award after pairing with her. It just seems like Mandy is a good luck charm to her on screen boyfriends. Examples, Oscar, Him, Benjamin all get popular after collaborating with her.

I wonder who will Mandy help next year? :P

Pretty much confirmed that Mandy Wong's next series is this which will commence in May according to tvb baidu. From KuangaiTVB's news, it's mentioned that Mandy won't film anything for a while after completing housewife madam which will ends the shooting by this month. She will go for a long trip with Myolie Wu, Nancy Wu and Paisley Wu after that and probably only return around early march or late February since Myolie and Nancy have work to do.

As for Him, he's filming Vinegar Woman now but it should be done by May.

Tracy just got her script for Battle Tomorrow so depending on if she can finish that on time, she might or might not be able to film this.

Oscar Leung is added to the cast. Apparently 2nd lead according to wiki. Oh man ... I doubt Mandy and Benjamin will pair up then. Darn! nevermind, Maybe with Tracy? fresh pairing if yes.

Just a note: Mandy's role this time might be a emotional one. She already express her wish in her recent interviews that she hope to take on crying/tragic roles. Producer Poon is known to dote on Mandy so he may grant her wish.

As for Him, he's filming Vinegar Woman now but it should be done by May.


Yea, Vinegar Woman will be completed by this month.

Pretty much real since tvb baidu don't post fake news from what I've seen. Except that source for Oscar being in is 50/50 ... since wiki are not accurate sometimes. AND ditto! I also like Mandy with Benjmain the most, gives off the more mature and modern feel compared to the other two. And yes same, I also think Mandy is similar to Tavia in the past.

hmm ... according to wiki. It seems that Ron will join this. Not sure if it's true yet, let's see then.
Current cast: Ron Ng, Mandy Wong, Benjamin Yuen. Heard it may be a musical series that focus on youngsters with dreams and fulfil it on stage according to one of the upcoming genre posted in asianeu.

will adjust changes when more info is out.

So I'm guessing that Battles Tomorrow won't finish filming by the time this starts so Tracy has to drop :( Such a shame, it would've been nice to see the THC2 doctors working together again .___. (also I really liked the original cast)

Not that I mind Ron, but still.

according to zh wiki, the title of this series is 掌聲背後. Not sure if it's 100% accurate though after all it's wiki, but that's the latest update for now. From asianeu, this series talks about An idol drama featuring young new blood artists. Story about young people making dreams come true on stage. Cast made up a combination of HK Performing Arts School and a group of newcomers.

lol sounds like a korean drama...don't remember the name though.... it feels like this drama will include a bunch of newbies like mhks or tvb acting class graduates or some voice of the stars candidates

also hope mandy grows her hair out!

heard they will get students from acting academy ... but the leads will be played by artistes that are in the new batch (Him, Vincent, Eliza, Mandy era) or still has the youthful/sunshine look.
Yea, hope Mandy grow her hair, I hope she get her hairstyle in THC1 again, I love that one.
