Inspired by Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, the 30 x 60’ drama stars Yili Ma (The First Half of My Life) as Miss Su Wen Li, a beautiful and witty socialite who forms an unlikely detective duo with the righteous and serious inspector Luo Qiuheng. Despite their many differences, the pair share an undeniable chemistry and – of course – go on to solve many cases together in and around Shanghai, all while Su Wen Li chases clues behind her sister’s disappearance.

Created by Australia’s Every Cloud Productions, the new series was produced by Tencent Penguin Pictures, Shanghai 99 Visual and Easy Entertainment for Tencent Network in China and for WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks in Southeast Asia. It will air as an HBO Asia Original on WarnerMedia’s regional streaming service HBO GO and then the HBO channel.

WarnerMedia has also acquired the rights to air the Mandarin-language drama in the US. In China, the series will air on Tencent and its several satellite channels in China, simultaneously. To date all3media international has sold the drama to more than 240 territories.

“Miss S is the latest in a growing number of compelling HBO Asia Original series, which offer audiences new stories that resonate in both Southeast Asia and beyond,” said Clement Schwebig, Managing Director of WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks, Southeast Asia, Pacific and China. “HBO GO subscribers will also be available to stream this beautifully-made adaptation first and exclusively.”

Sabrina Duguet, EVP APAC for all3media international, added: “We are thrilled that WarnerMedia Entertainment Networks is our partner on this visually stunning and highly entertaining drama series. This is our first collaboration on an HBO Asia Original, and we all agree that Miss S is genuinely a fantastic series. The show is infused with all the sophistication and flair we have come to love from the Miss Fisher brand and represents an exciting continuation of this stylish drama’s success story.”

The new deal is also the latest in the ongoing success of the Miss Fisher brand. Alongside three seasons of the original drama produced for ABC Australia, all3media international also distributes the latest incarnation of the franchise, Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries and the theatrical feature film Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears.
