Traditional Chinese 畢打自己人
Simplified Chinese 畢打自己人

Off Pedder (Traditional Chinese: 畢打自己人) is a TVB modern drama series broadcast since October 2008 and ended on 12 February 2010.

The sitcom is about office politics in a magazine company, as well as family and romantic relationships amongst the characters, with the majority of the cast from Best Selling Secrets.[1]

Synopsis[edit]

Chao (潮) Magazine is part of the Gambo Corporation, and has its offices on Pedder Street in Hong Kong (thus giving rise to the name of the series). The show centres on the politics of the Chao (潮) and Gambo office, and the lives of the characters who work in this office.

Central to the plot are Yan Seung (Teresa Mo), who takes up a position early on in the series as editor of Chao (潮). The initial plot focused on her rivalry with the Head of Sales, Susan Ka So-Shan (Elaine Jin). As more characters were introduced, the plot expanded to focus on Yim Yue Tai (Stephen Au) and Yu Ka Sing (Wayne Lai). How will these four individuals affect Pedder Street and who will become the ultimate leader of Chao (潮) Magazine...?
