Sisyphus 在劫难逃 is an upcoming mystery sci-fi thriller starring Wang Qianyuan as Zhang Haifeng, a former detective who has been wasting away his days after the accidental death of his two-year-old daughter. A recent serial murder case that seems to tie in with his daughter’s case catches his eye, and Zhang Haifeng begins to chase down a man who has been labelled a main suspect (Lu Han).
Zhang Haifeng’s attempts bring him no closer to the truth, and he ends up dying alongside the mysterious villain. However, he is time warped back to a day earlier, and the serial murder has yet to happen. It turns out that Zhang Haifeng will forever be stuck in the cycle of time travel, unless he finds out the truth to his daughter’s death (hence why they named the drama after Sisyphus).
Costars include Qi Xi, Qiao Xin, Wu Yue and Zhang Haoran. The first season will run for 12 episodes, and is produced by the director-producer team behind Day & Night.
