The Sleuth of Ming Dynasty tells the detective story of Tang Fan, a sixth rank 
official and Sui Zhou, an embroidered uniform guard with 50 soldiers under his 
command. The two join hands to crush a conspiracy to maintain peace and order 
for the people. The official Tang Fan and the military officer Sui Zhou can be 
described as the Ming Dynasty version of Sherlock Holmes and Watson, both of 
whom depended on each other while harboring a strong mutual dislike. In 
addition to forming a lasting friendship, the two take on synergistic roles at 
various moments during the saga, with memorable turns as "tenant and landlord" 
and "diner and exclusive chef". Sui becomes "the worst breeder" who feeds the 
"quick-witted little greedy cat" Tang. The drama, with the tension heightened 
by accidents, coincidences and reversals during their joint sleuthing, proves 
to be both exciting and funny, as the two "frenemies" work together against 
evil. At the same time, Wang Zhi, leader of the Western Depot, at times 
serious, facetious and adorable, is constantly stirring up trouble for the duo. 
The three distinctive characters together weave a saga of trials and 
tribulations. The strong performances of support characters Alyssa Chia and 
Lichun Lee add to the wonderful and purposeful confusion as the drama unfolds.

The Sleuth of Ming Dynasty is the first online drama that is a collaborative 
effort between Jackie Chan and iQiyi. The Jackie Chan Stunt Team created the 
action sequences which punctuate the hilarious scenes with intense martial arts 
performances. With the clothing, make-up and set not only faithful to styles of 
the day but also to the simplistic grandeur of the Ming Dynasty's Chenghua 
period, the drama is expected to be a major success in China and beyond.
