WarnerMedia has revealed its next HBO Asia Original series. Miss S《旗袍美探》is a 30-episode hour-long Chinese scripted drama and a format adaptation of the globally popular Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries. The series will premiere first and exclusively on the regional streaming service HBO GO later this year.
The series, which is set in 1930s Shanghai, stars award-winning actress Ma Yili《马伊琍》(The First Half of My Life, Struggle) in the title role of Miss S, also known as Su Wenli《苏雯丽》, a beautiful and witty socialite who forms an unlikely duo with the righteous and serious inspector Luo Qiuheng《罗秋恒》played by Gao Weiguang《高伟光》(Ghost Blowing Light, Harmony).
“Miss S is the latest in a growing number of compelling HBO Asia Original series, which offer audiences new stories that resonate in both Southeast Asia and beyond,” said Clement Schwebig, Managing Director of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, Southeast Asia, Pacific and China. “Not only available on HBO channels, HBO GO subscribers will also be available to stream this beautifully-made adaptation first and exclusively.”
