After winning his first Best Actor trophy at the Star Awards earlier this year, Tay Ping Hui is seeking out new pastures.

The 41-year-old makes his directorial debut with Brothers, a drama about friendship and betrayal. It airs on Channel U on Oct 8 at 9pm.

Besides directing, he also produced, wrote, edited and acted in the 14-minute-long pilot.

On how wearing all those hats was difficult, he adds: "I would strongly suggest to future first-time directors who are also actors: Don't do it man because it will drive you nuts. There are too many things to think about."
