After “Women on the Run”, TVB is planning to film a new sitcom in March called Ko Pang Moon Joh. Cheng Dan Sui (Ah Dan) and Chung King Fai (King Sir) will play son and father, expecting it to be a warm and relaxing kind of series. They also hope that King Sir’s popularity in “My Family” will rub off on it. This will be aired from Monday till Friday evening.
Christine Ng also have a part
The new series will temporarily have 100 episodes and apart from leads Ah Dan and King Sir, there will also be Christine Ng who plays Ah Dan’s wife, Raymond Cho and Johnson Lee. This series won’t be aired until April, but for it to keep up with current affairs in order to draw more viewers, it won’t be filmed all in once.
The first male lead Ah Dan hasn’t filmed TV series for a while now and in order to deal with the long shooting days he’s been building up strength at the moment. When asked how TVB has made him agree to shoot a 100-episodes sitcom, he smilingly told: “Many people find it strange that I have agreed to film this, but because I’ve never tried to film for sitcom I find it very challenging. More importantly, the prospect of cooperating with King Sir is very attractive.”
It turns out that it was King Sir who taught him drama. So from then on Ah Dan has always hoped for an opportunity to perform together with his ‘teacher’.
Selling its body for four months
Earlier when the two of them accidently met on the street, King Sir has already indicated that he wanted to cooperate with him, making Ah Dan a very happy man. He never could have imagined that TVB would soon present him this opportunity. So he will throw himself into these four months to shoot 100 episodes, moreover Ah Dan didn’t even negotiate. This only proves how attractive King Sir really is.
TVB hopes to win back some of its dominance on Monday till Friday evening with this sitcom. Asked if Ah Dan felt any ratings pressure, he replied: “If I already know that the ratings won’t be satisfying, I could only give it my best.”

Today is Fathers Day and TVB's sitcom "Welcome to the House" held a special event to mark the occasion, where members of the Ko family including Christine Ng, Raymond Cho, Shermon Tang and Kingdom Yuen appears to cook some beautiful dishes for the two fathers in the show Chung King Fai and Lawrence Cheng.
In response to rumours that the ratings for the show have been on the low side, Christine says that average ratings of 28 points are quite acceptable, but she feels that the show will continue to reach new heights because there will be some touching scenes to come that will create a new wave. She says: "Those scenes are very touching and I was crying so much that I couldn't speak my lines."
"Welcome" will complete filming its first 120 episodes in September and then go on to shoot a further 120 episodes, but Christine is worried that this will clash with her plans to go on holiday to Europe in October. She says: "Going to Europe is a must before I am 40." Producer Lo Wing Yin indicates that the ratings for the show are not bad and the extension was within the original plans, but they will have to continue with the original cast and have the family complete. As for Christine's holiday plans, he jokes: "Maybe we can introduce some good looking guys for her to act opposite her and attract her to stay." Upon hearing this, Christine's screen husband Lawrence gives an indication of his disapproval. Producer Lo adds: "For the new episodes, we will introduce some new characters such as Lai Lok Yi and Natalie Tong as well as some baddies!"
