Chen Xiao, Wang Ziwen’s medical procedural drama releases trailer

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.

Promos Round-Up: Bureau of Transformers

The answer to, what if Men in Black was a miniseries in China?

Millions of years ago, aliens, now known as yaoguai or demons, landed on Earth. To blend in, they hide their animal forms by shapeshifting into humans.  Join the cast of alien animals  and one lone human vet as they try to regulate the underground alien world in  urban fantasy/sci-fi Bureau of Transformers 动物管理局.  The series is set in the same world as that of Hanson and the Beast and stars Chen He, Wang Ziwen, Tang Xiaotian, Huang Tianyuan, Kong Songling, Huang Yilin, and Longbin.  It premieres today on iQiyi here with two new episodes every Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

Wang Ziwen, Chen He star in Hanson and the Beast spinoff Bureau of Transformers

 

 

No, not those Transformers. More like reverse animorphs. Urban fantasy series Bureau of Transformers has Wang Ziwen and Chen He working for an agency in charge of regulating transformers, or animal-looking aliens aka yaoguai that can also transform into humans. Wang Ziwen is an agent of the agency, while Chen He is a human veterinarian that got roped in . Together they must solve a series of cases while trying to maintain the delicate balance between the human and transformer worlds. The series is a spin-off of Hanson and the Beast, which I thought had a great premise that deserves to be flushed out more.
