Politically tinged drama taken off air

- +

Channel 3's primetime soap opera "Nua Mek 2" has abruptly been taken off the air on Friday, citing "inappropriate" content, and many reckon that the ban is "politically motivated". 

The storyline of Nua Mek 2 (Beyond the Clouds or Beyond Comparison) above the cloud (literal Thai translation), focuses on a corrupt politician keen on profiteering on a satellite launch and a sorcerer who performs black magic to manipulate politics.

The series, produced by Chatchai Plengpanich, who also acted as the sorcerer, and directed by Nonzee Nimibutr, was on air since Dec 14, and was cut short before airing its final episode on Friday night.
