Zhou Meisen and his “In the Name of People”

China Economic Weekly - - Contents -

The TV series called “In the Name of People” takes the central government’s recent crackdown on corruption as its background. Featuring an antagonist who is a national-level official, the show has been dubbed by Chinese media as “the country’s most daring TV series about anti-graft efforts”. According to Zhou Meisen, the writer, the character is inspired by the case of Wei Pengyuan, former deputy head of the coal department at the National Energy Administration who was sentenced to death with a twoyear reprieve in 2016 for corruption.
