November is TVB anniversary month! Around this time of year, TVB usually airs grand productions with strong casts as anniversary dramas, along with captivating variety shows. Earlier, there were various rumours on the internet, but the official anniversary drama lineup has finally been released. This year's anniversary series will be the following:

  • Wonder Women 多功能老婆 starring Miriam Yeung 楊千嬅 and Pakho Chau 周柏豪
  • Finding Her Voice 牛下女高音 starring Jacqueline Wong 黃心穎 and Owen Cheung 張振朗
  • The Man Who Kills Troubles 解決師 starring Vincent Wong 王浩信 and Natalie Tong 唐詩詠

In addition, Chinese drama The Legend of the Phoenix 鳳弈, in which Wayne Lai 黎耀祥 stars, will be airing in October, but it will not be an anniversary drama.

Wonder Women successfully invited long-departed Miriam Yeung back to play a leading role in a TVB drama. It was regarded as a strong anniversary drama candidate, but because of Miriam and Pakho’s recent social media posts stirring dissatisfaction among mainland netizens, there were rumours that the drama would not air until April 2020.

As for Finding Her Voice, many people were looking forward to the strong supporting cast made up of veterans, but because of Jacqueline Wong’s cheating scandal, the drama quickly became warehoused. It is finally getting released now, and will air on October 7 at 8:30 p.m.

Modern police drama The Man Who Kills Troubles, led by Vincent Wong and Natalie Tong, is unaffected and will be broadcasting in October.

As for variety shows, TVB will be releasing five programs:
