She then returned to China, where she began to work on a bilingual on-air host for the NBA, and she also served as the live host for the “Transformers: Age of Extinction” Chinese movie premiere.
“‘Talking to Hollywood with Betty Zhou’ is unlike any show in China,”said Zhou. “I am thrilled to be bringing a bit of Hollywood glamour to Chinese audiences.”
The show will premiere May 29.
