[News] [20081104] aTV lay off staff, hopes Tv series "Legal Elite" will save the market

金融海啸引发的裁员危机余波未了,一直财困的亚视昨日向员工“开刀”,裁减二十多人。至于有传离职的何定钧,将为稳定军心而多留一会,在“亚姐”选举后功成身退,由执行副总裁叶睿宇将接任其位置。

  被裁员的体育组虽然刚完成颇有口碑的奥运节目,但也于事无补,让人颇感无奈。而亚视内地制作公司“新视线”也随着高层陈灌明离去全线暂停制作,所属演员也要在两日内过档到亚视或另谋出路。对此,合约演员沈颖婷表示的确有听闻,但公司未跟她接触;而合约未完的吕晶晶也不讳言要自己寻找出路。此外,《胜者为王2008》及《义本同心》两套已拍毕的剧集也播出无期。

  据悉,以亚视目前形势,要吸引新一年的广告客户,只好靠外援剧“打救”。因此,由邓特希监制的新剧《法网群英》将披甲上阵,取代亚视原安排打头阵的《胜》剧,在12月底播出。可是《法》剧目前尚未完工,12月才做后期,提前播出有一定困难。

The financial crisis has caused great concern of staff being laid off. aTV who have always had financial problems started to aim at staff and laid off 20 people. As for aTV Executive Vice President Ho Ding Kwan rumored to be leaving, stated that he will be staying for the time being. After the Miss Asia Pageant he will officially resign. Dewy Ip will take his place.

The staff that manage the sport activities were laid off and had just finished their work for the Beijing Olympics. But there was nothing they could do and they felt hopeless. aTV's Mainland production company New Vision have temporary stopped producing work since executive Chan Guan Ming left the company. The actors of New Vision will need to sign up with aTV in the next few days or go elsewhere. Contract artist Winnie Shum said that she has certainly heard about it but the company has not approached her. Coffee Lu Jing Jing who still has a contract with them stated she will have to find a new path for herself. aTV Production series "King oF Glamber IV" and "My Depraved Brother" still have no airing schedule.

It is said that due to the current state of aTV, the only way to attract advertisers is to depend on distrubting Mainland series. In addition, new series "Legal Elite" produced by Gary Tang is to air in December and replace "King of Glamber iV" which was originally scheduled. However because "Legal Elite" has not finished its shooting it will be very difficult to air during the time.
