Chapter 1007: It’s A Win-Win

Chief Hu waved his hand in annoyance. “Let’s not talk about that.”
He was under a lot of pressure too. The station had given The Performer the go-ahead and pumped in so much money into the show.
Were the other programs happy about that?
Since long ago, there had been quite a lot of people who were unhappy about it.
“Previously, it’s not like you guys couldn’t find someone to do PR, but what happened in the end?” Chief Hu asked.
Ge Guangzhen didn’t say anything. He had nothing to say.
It didn’t work out previously. It probably would be equally bad this time around.
“Since you’ve already recorded the second episode, then we shall air it as scheduled,” Chief Hu of the Broadcasting Station said.
Ge Guangzhen still hadn’t had the time to let out a sigh of relief when Chief Hu said, “If the viewership ratings for the second episode don’t improve, then the show will stop airing.”
“Chief!” Ge Guangzhen called nervously.
“When the time comes, we’ll see if there’s any chance that it could be temporarily stopped and rescheduled. If not, it will be stopped indefinitely.” Chief Hu waved his hand. “Alright, then, go back and properly think about how to increase the viewership ratings for the second episode.”
Elsewhere, right after Lu Man had ended her call with Ge Guangzhen, Lu Dongliu called her.
“Director Lu,” Lu Man said as she smiled.
“Lu Man, I heard that Ge Guangzhen wanted to invite you to do PR for their show. Is that true?” Lu Dongliu asked directly.
Lu Man raised her eyebrows, smiled, and asked, “Looks like Director Lu has someone in Xing Ke Station. You hear about news so quickly. I had just ended the call.”
“Hey!” Lu Dongliu didn’t worry about being evasive. “Know thyself and know thy enemy, and you’ll never be defeated! Xing Ke Station definitely has someone in our Dong Hua Station too. If not, I wouldn’t have been so particular and tight regarding security for that episode. I was just afraid that they would find out something.”
Lu Man smiled and said, “Please rest assured, I didn’t agree to him. Please don’t forget why I’m going against The Performer. It’s not because of their show but because of the Lu Corporation.”
Lu Dongliu let out a sigh of relief. “I’ll stop worrying, then. It’s not that I don’t trust you, but I just feel really uneasy in my heart. I had to confirm with you one more time just to be sure.”
Lu Man laughed without saying anything.
“Oh, right, do you want to do anything about their second episode?” Lu Dongliu asked.
Lu Man smiled. “I just didn’t agree to help them. As for bashing them, it will depend on the situation.”
Lu Dongliu: “…”
What “depends on the situation”?
“I believe that after Classic X Files, various television stations will start believing in my ability. There will be people who will come looking for me. Not only can I help them raise their viewership ratings, but I can also drag The Performer down. It’s a win-win,” Lu Man said, smiling happily.
Lu Dongliu: “…”
It was a win-win for her, but what about them?
“There are already other production teams who have started looking for you?” Lu Dongliu asked.
“Yeah.” Lu Man took out a list and named, “Matchmaking Congregation, Speedy Life, and Running Show have all looked for me.”
It had only been one morning. It was highly likely that there would be some other production teams who would look for her in the afternoon too.
Lu Dongliu almost fell to his knees and knelt down. “Don’t agree to work with them, just continue working with us. Didn’t we sign a contract with you and it’s calculated based on each episode? We will continue signing a contract with you for the next episode. After all, you don’t really know them, but you’ve worked with us before and we’re both familiar with each other. It will be more convenient for us to work together. What do you think?”
Lu Man considered it for a while and said, “Sure.”
“Really?” Lu Dongliu didn’t expect that Lu Man would agree so readily.
“Just as you’ve said, we had a good partnership. It will be even more successful if we work together again. Moreover, right now, your show is at the top in viewership ratings and a lot of people are paying attention to the show. If I help your show do publicity, more people will pay attention to me too. It’s a win-win for both of us.”
