23 Apr – Now that he is a father himself, first time producer Tony Yang stated that he hopes to be kinder to the cast and crew of his new drama and not let them work too much.

As reported on Epoch Times, the Taiwanese actor, who is producing his very first TV series, "Accept The Challenge, Producer!", revealed that he plans to ensure that filming will not go until late into the night so that everyone has time to go home and see their family.

"I am just a small fry. I wouldn't dare demand too much from the crew," he said with a laugh.

Asked what inspired him to star and produce the series, which revolves around the most glorious era in Taiwan's recording industry, Tony stated, "When I was a child, my family ran a record shop. And when I joined the industry, I heard a lot of stories in the circle. Although the plot is fictitious, it will also incorporate some real events."

It is noted that the series will also invite real singers to appear in the drama, including Andy Hui, who is set to make his acting comeback through the series.
