Following TVB sitcom Be Home For Dinner, TVB producer Kwan Wing Chung will be starting a new sitcom in October entitled Marriage . Separation @ Formula of Lies. This time the sitcom is not set in the office like the previous ones were, but instead focuses on family warmth and current events. For a refreshing feeling, besides casting new faces like Hanjin Tan and Lin Xiawei (Raymond Lam's cousin), TVB especially invited Eddie Cheung, who has not been in a TVB series for several years, back to take on the leading role. He'll be playing husband and wife with Kiki Sheung. As for Joyce Tang, she'll be paired with Hanjin Tan. It was understood that because Hanjin's Cantonese isn't too great, Producer Kwan especially tailored a character who came from Singapore for him. His lines will often have English mixed into it.
Former model Lin Xiawei just signed a TVB contract and will be participating in the sitcom, making it her first series. The producer said frankly Lin Xiawei is very nervous, so he is currently looking for an experienced actor to pair with her and also for the convenience of bringing her into character. As for Lin Xiawei, she accepted an interview over the phone, and revealed that she plays an artist. Producer Kwan also made arrangements for her to learn ceramics: "Before in Mainland, I filmed 2-3 series, but this is my first modern series, really feel pressured. I'm going to do all my homework for my first performance in this series, hope to try out everything."
