Although this is like the fourth drama Zhang Han has produced, it's only the first one that's airing.  
Zhang Han’s just glad one of his four self-produced dramas is finally airing.

If you’re already paranoid by Brexit, just wait until you see the slew of psychopaths that the second half of 2016 will feature, starting with The Ten Deadly Sins 十宗罪.    Starring Zhang han, Yu Xiaotong, Eric Tsang, and newcomer Zhang Yamei, the series will air on July 20th on Youku.

Other upcoming detective series mostly focused on psychopaths include Wang Kai and Wang Ziwen’s When a Snail Falls in Love,  Yang Rong’s Memories Lost 美人为陷, Zhang Ruoyun and Jiao Junyan’s Medical Examiner Qin Ming 法医秦明 .  Upcoming films include Zhang Hanyun and Eddie Peng’s Operation Mekong, Liao Fan and Li Yifeng’s Evil Minds 心理罪, and the Alec Su-directed adaptation of The Devotion of Suspect X. 

The styling and cinematography is reminiscent of the classic Hong Kong cop films, with a nice blend of artistry and realism. The editing is creative, if not that suspenseful. But you can see for yourself:
