Derek Tsang is finally back in Hong Kong after a year in the UK.
As reported on Mingpao, the director, who appeared at Tatler Hong Kong’s charity event recently, shared that he had been busy focusing on the Netflix series, “The Three-Body Problem” in Britain, working alongside “Game of Thrones” showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss.
“I haven’t seen my wife [Venus Wong] for almost ten months. We haven’t gone on our honeymoon for the past three years of our marriage, so we’re planning to go to Italy after work is done,” said Derek.
Asked if dad Eric Tsang, who is now a TVB Executive, has called him for help with the broadcaster, the filmmaker stated that such a thing would never happen.
“We all work independently and avoid cooperation,” he said.
Derek’s upcoming series, based on Liu Cixin’s novel of the same name, tells the story of what happens when humanity discovers that we are not alone in the universe and prepares for an alien force arriving from a distant and inhospitable world.
It stars Eiza González and Benedict Wong among others.
