Cable channel OCN is set to make their own version of BBC’s police procedural series Life on Mars, and is currently courting actor Jung Kyung-ho (Wise Prison Life) to star as its main lead.
On January 5, a source from Jung Kyung-ho’s side stated, “It’s true that he has received an offer to star in OCN’s new drama Life on Mars. However, he is currently considering multiple projects, and that drama is just one of them.”
Life on Mars was a 2006 British crime drama about a police officer who wakes up as detective in the 1970s after being involved in a road accident.
Life on Mars will be directed by Lee Jung-hyo (The Good Wife) and is slated to air sometime this year.
