Headhunt among local TV stations is continuing. The soon-to-be TV station CTI Free-TV (CTI) has suspiciously lured half of the experienced scriptwriters away from Television Broadcasts Limited (TVB). Lai Man Cheuk, a veteran producer on media creation, said that the headhunt might not affect TVB seriously since there are still enough drama scriptwriters in Hong Kong.

According to Lai, those human resources who have been lured away by CTI counted only 5% of TVB’s total employees, in which Lai described as a “normal outflow of employees”. Currently, there are about 4,200 full time employees in TVB, including contract artistes and staffs in overseas subsidiary companies.

Lai also said that Hong Kong does not lack of scriptwriters since there is only one TV station (TVB) producing local drama [so far]. Nonetheless, Lai said that it was Mainland that lacks of good scriptwriters.

According to Lai, anyone who has the ability to write drama scripts could be a scriptwriter in Mainland TV stations due to the high demand of scriptwriters. Lai said that scriptwriters in Mainland could get a startup salary paying 2.5 times higher than the locals, which he said it is a good choice for local scriptwriters to try the Mainland market.

While being asked if Hong Kong’s scriptwriters are no longer comparable to those of the last generation, Lai, attending a General Assembly at Hong Kong Shue Yan University, said that he disagreed with the statement. He said that the society is changing and progressing, audience of different generations has different needs in terms of drama content, what fits the last generation might not fit the current generation. [Great point!]

Lai got his first job as a scriptwriter of the comedy programme Enjoy Yourself Tonight in TVB. He used to contribute 5 jokes per day for the programme. Enjoy Yourself Tonight was one of the most popular variety shows in the city, and first been shown in 1967.

[Your article focuses a lot on the mainland market, but the headling indicates it will be focused on the Hong Kong talent pool. Try to remain more focused and consitent.]
