Netflix has acquired its first online drama series produced in the Chinese mainland.
The U.S. entertainment giant unveiled a deal Thursday with Youku Tudou, the flagship streaming video service of Jack Ma's Alibaba Group, for worldwide rights outside of China to Day and Night, a 32-episode detective drama series.
Day and Night follows the investigation of a unsolved murder. The police detective in charge is recused from the case when it is revealed that his twin brother is the top suspect. Spurned by the suspension, the detective then quits his job — only to be recruited by the new lead investigator as a secret consultant.
The title is a reference to the dual but often uncertain identities of the two brothers — one ostensibly righteous by day, the otherallegedly evil at night. The twins have a secret – and together they're working to find out the truth about the real murderer.
剧名（Day and Night）暗指兄弟俩双重的但又难以捉摸的身份，一个在白日里看似光明正大，一个在黑夜里被视作邪恶阴暗。这对孪生兄弟暗藏秘密，他们将联手一起找到幕后真凶。
