Looks like TVB, now undergoing a company-wide restructuring, is not slowing down when it comes to turning stars into bigwigs on its corporate ladder.
First, there was the appointment of Eric Tsang as its Deputy General Manager and special advisor to the executive committee. Then, Wong Cho Lam was named Chief Creative Officer and has been tasked to assist Eric in the development of TVB’s variety and infotainment content.
Now, there’s news that former TVB leading man Steven Ma, 49, has been asked to take over the artiste training department, where he will oversee the coaching of new actors.
Stars who have emerged from TVB’s famed acting classes include cinematic icons Chow Yun Fat, Tony Leung and Stephen Chow, which means that Steven, if he accepts the new appointment, has his work cut out for him.
