‘Nowhere Man’: Netflix’s First Mandarin Original Is the Story of a Father Escaping from Death Row to Rescue His Kidnapped Son
In a quest to take over Asian audiences, Netflix first took an interest in Korean and Japanese dramas. Following their success, Netflix decided to dabble its feet in original Mandarin content.
Nowhere Man is the streaming service’s first commissioned Mandarin-language show written and directed by Taiwanese filmmaker DJ Chen and made in Taiwan.
The long-gestating series was described by Erika North, Netflix’s director of original content for Southeast Asia, Hong Kong and Taiwan, as a “wonderful jailbreak thriller with a strong redemptive arc”.
