Experimental online series explores urban romance
The experimental online series “My Lonely Planet” made its debut on iQiyi on Wednesday.
The series is an innovative collaboration between iQiyi and Shanghai Theater Academy to foster young theater professionals.
Students at the academy were involved in the series’ shooting, production and development.
It is a romantic comedy about an entrepreneur and a fashion designer whose lives are dramatically changed by the magnetic field of a comet.
Sources at iQiyi said that this cooperative model will continue to be developed with the professional theater academy. They will offer students more opportunities to be engaged in the industry.
Scripts, short videos and cultural programs from the campus will also be funded and supported.
