White Dragon follows a sheltered London professor, Jonah Mulray (Simm), who tries to unravel the mystery behind his wife’s sudden death. Mulray travels to Hong Kong after learning his wife, Megan, was killed in a car accident on the mountain roads of Tai Po, and makes a shocking discovery. As he digs deeper, he’s drawn into a web of conspiracy as he tries to find out the truth about the woman he loved.
The series also features Anthony Wong (The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor), Emilia Fox (Merlin), Katie Leung (Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix), Tim McInnerny (Game of Thrones), Anthony Hayes (Mystery Road) and Dervla Kirwan (Doctor Who).
Shot in Hong Kong and London, the series originally premiered as Strangers on ITV in the UK.

It was one of the first dramas secured by Jack and Harry Williams’ Two Brothers after it was acquired by All3Media.
