Asia Television (ATV) which has ceased broadcast since April 2016 will be announcing its rebirth on December 18 as it seeks to bring back classic variety shows. Onto their new roster of dramas, the first one on the list is Fan Bing Bing’s upcoming historical epic Win the World, which is much-awaited because of the A-list actress’ attachment to the project and also because it is the work of the creative team behind the highly-successful Empress of China.
ATV has shelled out approximately RMB 17 million (approx USD 2.5m) for exclusive rights to air the drama in Hong Kong. There were rumors that TVB was also interested to acquire the rights but couldn’t close due to the price. Although no broadcast date has been announced, it is expected to air on the same day as China.
