From See-Saw productions and Jump Film & TV, the live-action series “follows a teenage girl and a trio of fallen gods on a perilous journey as they attempt to bring an end to a demonic reign of chaos and restore balance to their world.” The story is based on the 16th century Chinese novel Journey to the West.
