- Sammo Hung will cook on a food programme.
- Anthony Wong will also have 《秋生飯堂》 (lit. "Chau Sang's Dining Hall").
- Former Director of Broadcasting Franklin Wong will make a series like "Below the Lion Rock" for TVB, using realistic themes in the current society. Everything revolves around the lives of citizens, such as hoping for one's child to succeed in life, the disparity between the rich and the poor, housing problems, etc.
- Because of realism, the actors used will not be those who are typically seen by viewers; there will be a search for more outsiders and newcomers. Starting in mid-2014, it has been arranged to broadcast on prime time Sundays.
- Starting next year, all scripts must be 80 percent or more completed before filming begins.
- TVB is considering doing remakes of two classic series, filming "Double Fantasies" in January and "The Misadventure of Zoo" in April.
- Lau Siu Ming, Bowie Wu, and Joe Junior will go to Spain and Portugal together to film a travel programme.
- Maria Cordero's "Good Cheap Eats" will have a new installment called 《食平DD》.
- TVB will produce the grand programme 《北漂南漂》 (lit. "Drift North, Drift South"), using real life stories to talk about having to face a new lifestyle when Hong Kong people who go up north to work, and when Mainland people go to Hong Kong.
- TVB will invite 'star lawyers' Money Lo and Melvin Wong to explain legal basics using easy methods.
- TVB plans to film the youthful, inspirational series 《掌聲背後》 (lit. "Behind the Applause"). The backbone of the story is about young people fighting for their dreams on the dance stage. It will look for candidates at the Academy for Performing Arts, as well as young people who already have potential.
Personal Note: Woah...TVB planning to make big changes.... This should be the layout for the Sales Presentation...wonder how much will actually follow through....
