HKTV dramas compete with TVB

The Election

We’ve added a new section for HKTV Dramas – the newest Hong Kong television station that has scoped out a lot of former TVB artistes. It’s great to have to more competition as TVB was pretty much monopolizing the TV series scene in Hong Kong since ATV productions usually can’t compete in ratings. HKTV’s dramas appear to look more gritty (versus TVB’s bright and colorful filming), stylistically more like movies, and deals with darker themes.

HKTV’s current dramas are “The Election” and “The Borderline”. “The Election” in particular resonates with Hong Kong’s youth of today as it is highly relevant to the protests going on right now in Hong Kong.
