I Know Everything - Chapter 510
Chapter 510: The pureness among variety shows.
Zhang Shouzheng was taken aback for a moment.
Then he realized that the boy in front of him wasn’t only the best songwriter in the country but also a great variety show creator.
He created the ‘Meteor Girls Selection’ that gave the girl band plenty of popularity before their debut and then sent them to the moon with ‘Burn My Calories’.
What made Chen Huan famous in this industry was ‘Meteor Girls’ Restaurant’.
This somewhat playful food review variety show had very high viewership and became a very popular show in Shanhai Streaming.
Zhang Shouzheng was from the video streaming service and knew that people from places like Japan and Korea were also watching ‘Meteor Girls’ Restaurant’ so the number of live viewers across Asia was 150 million.
This was a great achievement for a variety show.
Because it was from an online broadcast where the results of the popularity was the most easy to notice.
In general, the internet was connected to the world.
So everyone in the world could watch it.
This provided a good platform for global companies.
Would global companies spend not a lot of money for advertisement?
Shows that could have 150 million people live watching would definitely have another 200 million watching the show later so variety shows with strong presence were definitely the favorite of those companies.
From another perspective, it would also improve a company’s valuation.
For example, Pomelo.
Although it had been listed under Habao Entertainment, it wouldn’t be a problem for the market value of Habao Entertainment to have three limit-ups if they made a variety that was as popular as ‘Meteor Girls’ Restaurant’.
It was tens of billions yuan of capital if they had three limit-ups.
In contrast, what was the mere tens of millions or hundred million spent on the production?
Not to mention that the president of the parent company, Yang Feng, loved those types of sensational effect.
It would be a great achievement as long as a project was successful and attracted the attention across Asia.
Zhang Shouzheng even knew that Chen Huan recently produced a new variety show and handed it to Shanhai Streaming to produce it.
He was very envious of Shanhai Streaming’s ability to get Chen Huan’s variety shows but Chen Huan didn’t leak out any information and Shanhai Streaming worked very fast.
In absence of any reaction from the TV stations, Shanhai Streaming won by a huge margin.
At that time, Zhang Shouzheng was letting out a sigh on how the TV stations were getting too slow and couldn’t be as fast as net companies.
If it was his Pomelo, maybe they would be able to compete with Shanhai Streaming.
But unexpectedly, Chen Huan had another variety show in his hands.
A genius’ talent was really imaginable to the other people.
Zhang Shouzheng’s mood instantly lifted up and said, “Teacher Lu, we’re willing to work together as long as it’s your work! Please rest assured that we won’t be worse than anyone, only better!”
Habao Entertainment had 20 billion yuan in budget and most of it had been used for movies and TV series but Pomelo didn’t receive much in budget, which made his subordinate grumble.
How could he not charge ahead now that there was an opportunity?
“Alright!” Chen Huan smiled and said, “I’ll send you the general setting in two days and you can consider if you want to do it.”
“Okay!” Zhang Shouzheng knew it was unrealistic to have Chen Huan give it to him right now but his heart was still tickling in anticipation, “Teacher Lu, what kind of variety show? Is it singing? Or another show?”
“It’s a very stylish variety show and it’s different from the usual ordinary shows.” Chen Huan said, “It may not cause a big sensation but if it was done well, Pomelo will become famous.”
“Really?” Zhang Shouzheng smiled in joy.
It was certainly best to have a program that had high ratings but what Chen Huan described was equally as attractive.
A streaming service’s show needed uniqueness and quality in order to accumulate renown and have people remember it.
The variety show Chen Huan promised Pomelo was something Chen Huan just came up with when he saw Zhang Shouzheng coming over.
From the perspective of maximizing the benefits he would receive, he still needed competitors to increase the value of his own things.
Even if Shanhai Streaming never short-changed him, Chen Huan knew that in the eyes of the princess, whether it was Chu Liuxiang or Lu Xiaofeng, they were all replaceable partners.
Isn’t it because The princess didn’t have to worry too much because of the unequal status?
It was for this reason that she didn’t make her stance clear when the situation with ‘Stingy Chu Liuxiang’ happened.
They would just find someone else without Chu Liuxiang.
China was such a big country and they couldn’t find a second ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’?
Anyways, Shanhai Streaming never treated Chu Liuxiang badly and that was enough.
If Chu Liuxiang was being condemned by the populace and Shanhai Streaming actively supported him, it would damage Shanhai Streaming’s image and valuation.
Wouldn’t the princess know what was more important?
However, Zhang Shouzheng came but Chen Huan couldn’t ‘Prison Break’ to him. However, he had a variety show recall so he could use it.
This was a reward from the Venice awards.
At that time, Chen Huan thought he could understand a variety show in a glance so why would he need a recall for?
But in all fairness, some more complicated variety show needed a recall.
For example, the one Chen Huan planned to give Pomelo, ‘The Brain’, he would have never really understood it without any professional planning.
Because it was a series of IQ tests with other forms of entertainment and interaction… everything added together would make the people feel the terror of genius, the charm of knowledge and the fun in it.
The ratings of shows like that wouldn’t be ridiculously high and wouldn’t reach a hundred of millions in live viewers or even 70 or 80 million.
But as Chen Huan promised Zhang Shouzheng, ‘The Brain’ would be very stylish and improve the image of Pomelo and make the people feel that Pomelo was a very serious streaming website.
Wasn’t this type of competition that Yang Feng liked?
He, who liked to be in the limelight, maybe would make guest appearances like the president of JD Brother Dong in his past life.
