Chinese period romance "Monarch Industry," the first TV drama starring Zhang Ziyi, the star of "House of Flying Daggers" and "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," is set for online release soon.

Youku, the show's exclusive online screening platform in China, announced the news Thursday through social media without specifying the date of release.

Known in Chinese as "Shang Yang Fu," the drama was adapted from the novel "Di Wang Ye," or "Emperor's Conquest."

Zhang plays the role of princess Wang Xuan, who, caught in a power struggle within the imperial family, strikes a deal with her husband to work together to bring peace and prosperity to the country. The story also portrays how she simultaneously strives to protect her childhood beloved.
