Ho To glimpses into Cheuk Wah’s wounded heart and sees flashes of himself. A special bond forms between the pair….
Tiger Cubs promises thrilling action and big explosions. Hunky TVB actors will flaunt big guns as they combat the most dangerous criminals in Hong Kong! Sporting a massive tattoo on his neck, Kenneth Ma (馬國明) will guest star as a dangerous bank vault robber who takes hostages on a bus. This may be Kenneth’s most ruthless character in his career to-date! Joe Ma and Hunky Cast to Tear Off Shirts
If the ratings for TVB drama prove to be exceptional, Joe Ma promised to lead the male cast in tearing off their shirts to reward fans! Sporting an enviable 42-inch muscular chest, Him Law quipped, “If the ratings of Tiger Cubs are ideal, I will support Joe Ma! I will join the men in showing our muscles!” However, Him said that he lacked the time to exercise his body recently, so he will need to train for a fitter figure before revealing his muscles.
Causing a media circus earlier, wealthy gay businessman, Lau Ding Sing (劉定成), claimed that he had photographed numerous muscular actors in topless photos. Aside from Him Law, it was revealed that William Chak had addressed Mr. Lau as his “Godfather,” who happened to have paid for William’s birthday party expenses.
Mr. Lau allegedly claimed that he had also photographed Joe Ma for his private viewing pleasure. Joe replied, “I started working as a model when I was 18 to 19 years old. My first fashion show was for a swimwear brand. Of course, I have shot swimming briefs photos! But I do not know Mr. Lau! Does he wish to drag the entire Tiger Cubs cast into the scandal?” Multi-million Dollar Production
Each episode of Tiger Cubs will run 90 minutes, in which an independent case will be featured. TVB spent a splashy $10 million HKD to produce each episode of the drama. The 13-episode drama will first air on Sundays in June, before expanding its broadcast slot to include both Saturday and Sunday evenings.
TVB described the production of Tiger Cubs to resemble a television movie, due to its high production cost, length of episode, and show format resembling overseas syndicated television series. Since I-Cable secured the broadcasting rights of the London 2012 Olympics this summer, Tiger Cubs was TVB’s answer to strengthen its weekend ratings .
