SundanceTV’s latest original scripted drama “One Child” will have its world premiere as a two-night special event on Friday, December 5th and Saturday, December 6th at 9pm ET/PT, each night featuring a two-hour episode. The mini-series stars Katie Leung (Harry Potter), Emmy® nominated actress Elizabeth Perkins (“Weeds”) and Donald Sumpter (“Game of Thrones,” The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and is penned by Guy Hibbert, known for his work on Five Minutes of Heaven and currently working on Eye in the Sky, starring Aaron Paul and Helen Mirren. This riveting dramatic thriller plunges into the heart of contemporary China – in all its contradictions – and takes a fresh, cross-cultural look at what it means to be family.

“One Child,” following the summer’s critical success for SundanceTV’s “The Honorable Woman” starring Maggie Gyllenhaal, tells the story of a young Chinese-born woman, Mei (Leung), adopted at birth by a couple in the UK, who suddenly gets called back to her native Guangzhou by her birth mother. Her son Ajun – and the brother Mei never knew existed – has been wrongly accused of murder and is facing execution. The real killer is a rich Chinese ‘princeling’ with a well-connected, wealthy father who has corrupted the witnesses into lying.
