TVB is showing signs that it is getting hints streaming content is the future if it isn’t already so.
After TVB’s best idea ever in recent history, somebody in the company is smart enough to create exclusive web content as part of The Exorcist’s Meter franchise, a sidequel. Not a sequel, this works more like Rogue One: a Star Wars Story, where none of the original characters are the focus of this new story.
The other reason why this sidequel is so fantastic:
Has anyone ever heard of Yeung Chiu Hoi (楊潮凱), Derek Wong (黃建東), Gloria Tang Pui Yee (鄧佩儀), or Kelly Cheung Hei Man (張曦雯)? These actors have always been playing secondary or tertiary characters in sitcoms or if they are lucky, on prime time lineup. Putting the unknowns on the Internet streaming content is probably another great idea someone in management finally took upon.
TVB, keep your current management structure, put more of your unknowns on computer screens. It is to your benefit to make these people famous.
