The Lead (Chinese: 第一主角) is a 30 episode Singaporean drama produced and telecast on Mediacorp Channel 8. The show aired at 9pm on weekdays and had a repeat telecast at 8am the following day. The show is Channel 8's mid-year blockbuster for 2017 to remember Mediacorp at Caldecott Hill and to celebrate 35 anniversary years of television dramas. It stars Rebecca Lim , Shaun Chen , Andie Chen & Julie Tan as main casts alongside with Chen Hanwei , Xiang Yun , Zheng Geping , Terence Cao & Kym Ng as the supporting casts of this series.


Ah Zhen (Rebecca Lim) has three childhood friends, Guang Hui (Shaun Chen), De Ping (Andie Chen) and An Ya (Julie Tan). Like Ah Zhen, they also love watching drama, and yearned to be seen on the TV screen. The four friends even made a pact together: to make it big in the drama scene, to play the lead character in a drama someday!
