"Heroes in Harm's Way" was also a highly anticipated drama about Covid-19 that has come under fierce criticism for downplaying the role of women during China's epidemic fight.
It aired a year ago and promised to be the first TV drama "based on real-life stories" about front-line workers in the central Chinese city of Wuhan, the site of the first coronavirus outbreak.
The title of the show implied that it was going to highlight the major contributions women had made in China's epidemic fight. However, it received many critical comments, mainly about its depiction of women, before they were suddenly suspended on the side.
