Show Time Blues - 樂壇插班生

Teen idols Ha (Mui Siu Wai) and Ping (Chan Mui Hing) fall in love with actor Ning (Ma Tak Chung) at the same time. Their entanglements make headlines everyday. Ha discovers that Ning is just using her, so she leaves him. Ping, on the other hand, meets a better man and retires from her singing career. The two most talented record producers, Choi (Lai Yiu Cheung) and Hung (Kwok Siu Wan, Florence) place a bet: whoever could train a nobody into the most popular singer in town would win. Then they meet Pui (Lam Ka Dong) and Shan (Kong Yan Ying) and turn them into popular idols. Shan’s uncle, Ming (Timothy Zau), persuades the “Three Flies” (Dai Yiu Ming, Lee Ka Keung and Man Ka Wing) to sing in his bar to attract customers. To his surprise, their performances are widely accepted and Shan therefore decides to bring them into the show business…

樂壇風起雲湧,競爭激烈,新人湧現,人人為名利而掙扎,所付上的努力、精神、代價之多之重,實不足為外人道,若非處身其中,必未能想像箇中之慘況。故事發生在一唱片公司,知名玉女陸明霞(梅小惠飾),與新星姜德培(林家棟飾)及失散多年之孖生姐妹利麗珊(江欣燕飾)產生一段三角關係,而表哥張洪倪(阮兆祥飾)原來一直在暗戀著表妹明霞,在明霞最失意之時,鼓起勇氣示愛。眾人在樂壇浮沉,力爭上游,而唱片公司的兩大監製謝菊紅(郭少芸飾)及盧志才(黎耀祥飾)亦扭盡六壬、出盡板斧,來捧紅自己的歌星。珊舅父明(邵傳勇飾)以「三隻烏蠅」(戴耀明、李家強、文嘉永飾)表演歌舞,來吸引顧客到其酒吧,竟大受歡迎,珊有見及此,決帶三人入行。本劇道盡樂壇光怪陸離,日新月異的趣事怪事,令人忍不住捧腹大笑,但亦往往笑中帶淚,誇張與寫實同時兼備,引來會心微笑。
