War of Seven Kingdoms, a documentary dubbed by some as a Chinese equivalent of Game of Thrones, will air on Tencent Video, a popular video streaming site, for its premium members on Dec 11.

Witten and directed by award-winning filmmaker Jin Tiemu, the seven-episode documentary focuses on the rise and fall of the seven kingdoms in the Warring States Period (475-221 BC) in ancient China.

Although each episode features a well-known actor playing the key roles, such as a king, a minister, a prince or a scholar-turned strategist, the documentary has all its plots well grounded on established historical records and archaeological findings, the director said at a press screening on Dec 9.
