Regulators discourage same-sex romance in dramas

New rules have been released by Chinese television regulators in an attempt to sanitize programming.

Under the new rules, same-sex romance, extramarital affairs and underage love are no longer going to be allowed in Chinese TV series.

Extramarital affairs and one-night stands are also being banned, with regulators deeming this type of programming pornographic and vulgar content.

At the same time, superstitious and feudal ideas, such as reincarnation and witchcraft, are being banned.

Crime investigation scenes are also set to undergo additional scrutiny by regulators, with anything which could inspire criminals set to hit the cutting floor.

Teenagers will not be shown on Chinese television smoking, drinking or fighting.

Underage lovers are also being banned.
