Zheng Xiaolong's new spy epic hits small screens

Updated 2017-12-19 15:00:17 Global Times

Chinese director Zheng Xiaolong, well-known for TV productions including Red Sorghum and The Legend of Zhenhuan, has returned to the small screen with a new spy war production: Wild Rose.

With Zheng onboard as artistic director, the production starring Yang Zishan and Chen Xiao broadcast its first episode on Jiangsu TV on Saturday.

Different from the past spy productions, Wild Rose focuses on how the characters grow to become undercover agents in Kuomingtang-administrated cities in China during the 1930s.

Zheng said at a press conference on Thursday that "in addition to examining the lives of people during that special time, the show also wants to express a certain spirit, because we are making this drama for young people as well."

Its director Jin Ye, whom Zheng has worked with on a number of productions, echoed Zheng's statement, "The show tries to remind us of those unknown heroes who didn't know the future but still sacrificed all they had for our futures."
