New high-stakes crime drama seeks to show the lesser-known aspects of legal work through the actions of an unconventional judge, Xu Fan reports.

The image that most people will probably have in their minds when picturing a judge will be that of an official, sitting majestically in an elevated seat, presiding over proceedings in a grand courtroom. However, the online series, Out of Court-backed by the Supreme People's Court, China's highest legislative organ-suggests that a judge's work is sometimes more complicated and dangerous than most of us think.
