AMC and Channel 4 sci-fi drama Humans is being remade in China after Endemol Shine China partnered with local producer Croton Media.
美国AMC电视台和英国电视4台合作的科幻剧《真实的人类》将在中国翻拍,此前Endemol Shine China(电视节目制作公司及发行商)与当地制片商克顿传媒在合作。

Chinese stars Ray Ma and Stephy Qi are fronting the local Mandarin-language remake, which has just begun filming in Shanghai.

Kudos, which produces the UK version of the drama, and Matador, which produced the original Swedish series, are also working on the series.

Humans is set in a parallel present where the latest must-have gadget for any busy family is a ‘Synth’ – a highly-developed robotic servant eerily similar in appearance to human beings.

Set in the fictional year 2035, when technology, in particular artificial intelligence will infiltrate and influence every aspect of daily existence, the series will keep the sinister, thrilling and emotional narrative of the original English-language version, while exploring the rapidly evolving relationship between humanity and technology.

William Tan, Managing Director of Endemol Shine China, says, “Humans marks our first scripted formats partnership deal with a local partner in China and having enlisted both UK and Chinese writers it’s truly a collaborative venture.
Endemol Shine China的常务董事William Tan谈到:“该剧意味着我们首次与中国合作伙伴签署剧本合作协议,英国和中国的编剧都有参与创作,这是一次真正的合作。

Sci-fi drama is an under represented genre across the region and we really believe that this new take will set a new trend and that Endemol Shine China will continue to be the leader in creativity and innovation, making unique offerings to the market.”
科幻片是该地区代表性较弱的影片,我们真的相信,这一新的题材将会开创一个新的趋势,并且Endemol Shine China将继续成为创新创意的领导者,为市场提供独特的影片。“
