Wang Ziwen, Chen Xiao, and Jia Qing’s medical procedural drama Healer of Children 了不起的儿科医生 released its first trailer yesterday. Chen Xiao seems way too young to look like he was a doctor when Wang Ziwen was still a child, but that seems to be what the trailer implies?

The series is directed by Yang Lei (Stairway to Stardom,The Red) and written by Wang Huan (Kill Mobile) and Weng Haixin (A Simple Hero). No news on airing dates yet.
