SARFT Criticizes TV Stories Promoting Superstition, Fatalism and Reincarnation

On March 31, 2011, China’s State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television (SARFT) issued a public notice regarding the production of TV series. The notice criticized some submitted TV series as having “random compilations of fairy tales” and even promoting “superstition, fatalism and reincarnation.” The notice reminds all the producers that the 2004 SARFT regulations on TV production and broadcasting remain in effect. “At the beginning of their work, organizations involved in the production of such TV series must carefully consider the market risks so as to avoid any blind investment.”
