Nothing like putting pressure on yourself by naming your drama, Great Expectations (远大前程)! But then how could you not when the majority are veterans in the field? Real-life husband and wife, Chen Si Cheng and Tong Li Ya, star in the highly anticipated republican drama by sending everyone back to the world of glitz and glamor of 1920s Shanghai in a constant battle of power struggles. Beside playing the male lead, Chen Si Cheng also sits proudly in the team of producers and sole scriptwriter chair that he’s been working on for 5 years. His previous script work was Beijing Love Story (北京爱情故事).
