Sony Pictures Television & Hong Kong's ATV in content deal

MUMBAI: Sony Pictures Television International (SPTI) and Hong Kong Asia Television Limited (ATV) have reached an agreement to present the brand new epic drama series The Stories of Han Dynasty to audiences in Hong Kong.

The contract was signed by Sony Pictures Television International managing director Todd Miller and ATV programme & external Affairs senior vice president Kwong Hoi Ying.

The 50 hour-long episodes airs on ATV at 10 pm from Monday to Friday.

The Stories of Han Dynasty, produced by China Central Television (CCTV), is shot in HDTV, with renowned cast and crew from China, Hong Kong and Taiwan. SPTI had signed a licensing deal in June 2005 with CCTV's programming licensing division, China International Television Corporation (CITVC) and acquired multi-year rights to distribute CCTV's series in Asia, except in the People's Republic of China and Japan.

The Stories of Han Dynasty is the story of two men, one of noble birth, one of unremarkable heritage, who join a revolution against the Qin government, forging a friendship that is soon threatened by political ambition and divided loyalties. After overthrowing the Qin dynasty, the two friends are maneuvered into a civil war where they must battle against one another and set aside their bond in order to appease the forces they lead. One shall stand; one shall fall in this epic drama about the politics of war.

The Stories of Han Dynasty stars Hu Jun, Xiao Rongsheng, Wu Chien-Lien, Kristy Yeung and Wang Gang. The executive producer is Yang Yubing. It is produced by Li Qingyu. Wei Hantao, Huang Weiming and Li Jiqiang are directors.
