4773_63720

Could this be the first hard sci-fi drama to succeed?

Sci-fi drama  Hard Memory: Prisoner Under Air 失忆之城之空气的囚徒 tells of a city in need of memories and oxygen. In the near future,  the populace are imprisoned in a walled “city”  as their memories are farmed by the ruling class. I imagine they must really need oxygen outside of the walled city since not giving people enough oxygen is probably not the best way to get memories.

 Han Geng plays a boxer who helps the poor to win oxygen  through fighting matches.  The sci-fi drama is produced by and stars Han Geng. Janice Man, Kenny Kwan, Zhang Yuxi join his team while Shawn Yue and Zhang Yujian play the antagonists.

Ju Jingyi, Aaron Yan, Zhang Yuxi, Han Dong, Merxat break out of prison in new drama

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.

Trailer, alternate plot,  and lots of stills below
