About 2 months ago, I got the chance to fly to Hong Kong to be part of a new Australian TV series – Trouble in Paradise (Previously it had the working title Holiday Hell). This is a new 1 hour TV Series which borrows from the UK version – My Holiday Hostage Hell. In Fact the Australian version includes the UK story with the specially produced Australian story. David Mason of Mason Media produced and directed the series. David has produced many TV series before including The Mole, Celebrity Survivor, Popstars, and Who Dares Wins.
I was involved with the well publicized story of the busload of Australian female travel agents who were taken hostage by a Chinese National in Xi-an just months before the Beijing Olympics. I got to play the role of Eric Wang who was the Chinese Australian tour operator that played a pivotal role in negotiating with the Chinese National to release the innocent Australians.
I’ve been informed by one of the producers that my story will be screened as part of the first episode tomorrow night. I haven’t seen the finished product, but apparently it is one of the networks favourites:) We’ll see. . . If you’re in Australia you can catch it tomorrow night:
Thursday June 25th
8.30pm on Channel nine – right after Getaway!
