Louis Koo, Charmaine Sheh Still Owe TVB Work, HK Media Thinks They Can Help Save TVB’s Dismal Ratings If They Return To Pay Their ‘Debts’
One can only wish.
Hongkong broadcaster TVB is in a bit of a crisis.
Despite drastic measures put in place by the company, including massive corporate restructuring — hence Eric Tsang and Wong Cho Lam's new roles in upper management —ratings are still lacklustre.
In fact, one of the station’s latest dramas, Murder Diary, is now the lowest-rated TVB drama of all time.
Some Hongkong news outlets have since suggested ways TVB can improve their ratings. One such method involves getting former TVB stars to return to shoot dramas that they contractually still owe TVB but couldn't fulfil during their tenure with the station.
Among these stars are A-listers like Louis Koo, 50, Stephen Chow, 59 and Charmaine Sheh, 46, who each have one drama left with in their contract, and Leo Ku, 49, who has two.
