Release Date of Female Prime Minister May Be Postponed
Back on topic! One of the producers of Female Prime Minister, Yu Zheng, just announced that Hunan TV has postponed the broadcast date from the originally rumored July air time to October 1, the week of Chinese National holiday. DARN! I believe that reason behind this postponement is the London Summer Olympics. Hunan TV has been suffering from very depressing ratings and lost its former glory of dominating the evening TV audience. Since Female Prime Minister is one of their special "baby" projects where they invested in the production, they cannot afford to risk competing with the Olympics. On a side note, Yu Zheng is known to disclose information before maturation. His words are often in fluidity and things tend to change. In other words, I'm praying Female Prime Minister will still air in July.
The good news is we're going to get to see a 30-minute long trailer soon! Supposedly, Hunan TV will release the official trailer today (Beijing time). Hooray! I can now say I REALLY have something to look forward to! I'll post it up immediately once it's out. Check back in a few hours or in a day or two.
