Yan Jinyi does intend to produce the TV series on her own this time. It may be difficult at the start but once she succeeded, her status in the entertainment industry will rise again in the future and the price she can command will naturally increase too.
“That’s not enough, unless you make a reality film. A TV series takes longer to produce and you have to take into consideration the costs for costumes and labor, etc. especially since it’s going to be a period drama. 10 million may not necessarily guarantee a good final product either.”
‘Ah, are the conditions that harsh?’
Yan Jinyi frowned. She was from ancient times so she definitely preferred costume dramas.
“Jinyi, why don’t you ask Mr. Huo to invest? Since you’re his wife, he will certainly agree to let you produce your own TV series.” Tao Wei smiled fawningly and approached Yan Jinyi. “I can charge you a sum that’s below market price!”
“Get lost!” Yan Jinyi said with a look of disgust, “I want to set up my own business, so that after I leave the Huo family in the future, I can also open a film and television studio in addition to Black Cloud Fortress.”
As if he had just heard a piece of groundbreaking news, Tao Wei immediately seemed frightened and he asked, “Are you planning to divorce Mr. Huo?”
“Do not go out and talk nonsense. Anyway…” After some contemplation and being stuck in a dilemma for a while, Yan Jinyi raised her index finger and continued, “In this case, I will invest 10 million yuan. I want to produce a period drama, preferably about immortal heroes. By the way, I don’t have to be the female lead but I must play the fox spirit that wreaks havoc on the nation!”
It was the first time Tao Wei had ever encountered an actress putting forward such a request. ‘Yan Jinyi is really extraordinary.’
“10 million yuan for a TV series about immortal heroes. It won’t be enough unless we learn to make our own special effects.”
The 10 million yuan was the amount she had saved after lots of scrimping.
“Director Tao, I have always felt that a good film or TV drama series doesn’t necessarily require a large sum of money to produce because the quality actually depends on the actors and director. If the actors are outstanding, the audience will watch them even if they’re dressed in sacks!”
To put it bluntly, she just couldn’t bear to spend her money.
“I-I’ll do my best.” After saying that, he couldn’t help but gossip again. “Jinyi, do you really plan to divorce Mr. Huo?”
Tao Wei’s expression immediately became exaggerated. “Are you the one who wants a divorce or is Mr. Huo the one? Why do you want to get a divorce?”
With an extremely sweet smile, Yan Jinyi winked at Director Tao and answered, “Because I think you’re a good man and I want to marry you, Director Tao!”
“You can’t joke about that. I-I will go to help you find a script now. You…you go get busy!” Tao Wei scurried away like he was being chased, vanishing in a flash.
Yan Jinyi rested her chin in one hand. She thought, ‘Tao Wei is really not too bad. I heard that he’s really henpecked and he’s a slave for his wife at home!’
‘It’s basically impossible to make Doggy Huo my slave.’
‘Hey… Do I like Doggy Huo or not?’
Yan Jinyi had been in a good mood lately. On the contrary, Huo Xishen seemed to have become his old self from over a year ago, and the entire conference room felt like hell.
Huo Zihang rarely returned to the main office for meetings and only did so this time because TG Entertainment had plans to expand to overseas.
In the end, as soon as he arrived, he chanced upon Huo Xishen losing his temper and not even sparing him even though he was his brother.
“Assistant Wen, what’s up with Second Brother? He didn’t get any satisfaction from Second Sister-in-law this morning…”
‘Uh, Second Sister-in-law did not come home these two days, and she really did not satisfy him.’
“Third Young Master, I suspect that Mr. Huo has had a tiff with Second Young Mistress,” Assistant Wen said in a serious manner.
He had inadvertently bumped into Huo Xishen switching off the TV less than two seconds after seeing Yan Jinyi’s advertisement on the TV so he reckoned that they must have had an argument.
“Tiff? That’s impossible, Second Brother is a bore and he tends to ignore Second Sister-in-law even though she’s hot-tempered. They can’t possibly get into an argument.”
He had never seen them getting into an argument before anyway..
