Painted Skin is a Chinese television series adapted from the 2008 film of the same title, which, in turn, is loosely based on a classic short story in Pu Songling's Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio. It was first broadcast on TVS4 on 3 March 2011 in mainland China.



The production team of the 2008 film Painted Skin, including its director and producer Gordon Chan, were involved in the planning and production of this television series. Chan mentioned that the television series would not be a repetition of the film, as the script used for the film would be revised, and more focus would be placed on the relationships between the main characters Xiaowei, Wang Sheng, Peirong, Pang Yong and Xia Bing. Shooting began on 8 September 2010 in Beijing and wrapped up in December.[1][2]
