Turner breaks new ground with Mandarin co-pro, "The Haunted Heart", dialing into demand for high-end Asian drama and ramping up its bet on owning IP. The series, currently in post-production in Taiwan, is the network’s largest investment in original Asian drama to date. Marianne Lee, Turner Asia Pacific’s Vice President of Content, General Entertainment, speaks about her Asian content and originals strategy, and joins Taiwanese writer, producer and director, Li-ju Xie, behind the scenes of the 30-episode fantasy/action/romance about a young video-games tester who, because of her incredible brain power, has the ability to communicate with ghosts.
