Prison break drama Please Give Me a Pair of Wings 请赐我一双翅膀 airs on Tencent today. Starring Ju Jingyi, Aaron Yan, Zhang Yuxi, Han Dong, Merxat, and Wang Yitong, the series airs every Tuesday-Saturdays on Tencent here today (so far not region blocked) . More stills, trailer, and a weird official plot that seems to have nothing to do with the drama here.
Nowadays dramas can be pulled 10 minutes before airing (ahem Novoland, although that’s probably more to do with the fact that it’s a period drama), so don’t get too excited about the shows with unconfirmed dates.
Shows that dropped with little notice: The Untamed, Love and Destiny, The Longest Day in Chang’an, Novoland: Eagle Flag
Prison break action flick or inspirational female educational-attainment film? Either way, it’ll probably end up being mostly a romance.
In what looks like Prison Break meets Orange is the New Black, Ju Jingyi, Aaron Yan, Zhang Yuxi, Han Dong, and Merxat star in Republican-era Please Give Me a Pair of Wings 请赐我一双翅膀. There are two versions of the plot, both from very official sources, so I’m not sure which one is real, but one that the Baidu Baike and the trailer seem to suggest the series features the female lead hanging out and eventually teaming up with other prisoners to break out of jail after being accused of murder while her friends try to clear her name from the outside.
