A television series titled Pioneers of the Era, which depicts the development process of Mao Zedong's philosophy, is set to premiere on May 11, according to a press conference held in Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang province.
The Jiaxing Municipal Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC) and the Jiaxing Municipal Government were the producers of the TV series, which is meant to be a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CPC.
The TV series uses the perspective of modern Chinese youngsters to showcase the history of CPC's struggles starting from the May 4th Movement in 1919 to the seventh National Congress of the CPC in 1945, highlighting the practice and development of Marxism in combination with China's actual conditions.
In order to recreate the scenarios surrounding the CPC's founding, the creators of the TV series took fours years to study historical materials, make field visits and organize seminars to discuss the script.
The cast and crew traveled Hengdian, Jiaxing, Shanghai, and Yan'an to film the TV series.
Jiaxing, which produced the TV series as a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the founding of the CPC, is considered the birthplace of the CPC. [Photo/WeChat account: jxfabu]
