Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou is making his small screen directorial debut with Pandamen, a TV drama series about two Chinese superheroes.
Jay held a press conference in Beijing on Monday to announce the filming. He said that he wants to create Chinese superheroes which could rival Spiderman and Batman in the west.
Pandamen is a story about two heroes protecting their city (what else?). It’s not mentioned what kind of superpower the duo has, but seems like it’s going to be a comedic drama instead of serious attempt to emulate the western icons as claimed.
The series star Devon Song and Zhan Yuhao of Taiwanese pop group Nan Quan Mama. Jay Chou is not taking leading role, but is expected to make some cameo appearances.
