BEIJING, March 28 (Xinhua) -- "In the Name of the People," an anti-corruption TV drama, will be aired from Tuesday on Hunan Satellite TV.
The 55-episode series was adapted from a novel of the same title, and was co-produced by the Film and TV Center of the Supreme People's Procuratorate of China. Production costs 120 million yuan (about 17.4 million U.S. dollars) and took almost two years.
It follows fictional officials at various levels in the ongoing campaign against corruption, showcasing the country's efforts to pursue low-level "flies" and high-ranking "tigers."
The novel "In the Name of the People" by Zhou Meisen was published in January and drew an enormous amount of public attention.
During China's annual political meetings, the "Two Sessions," earlier this month, a stage version of "In the Name of the People" was performed in Beijing.
