Kansai TV Seeks to Explore Drama Remake and Format Sales in the Americas
Drama remake sales for North America, particularly for the following titles :
Romance comedy: “He Who Can’t Marry” seasons 1 & 2
Suspense series: “My Beautiful Neighbor,” “SAKI” and “FINAL CUT”
Live TV quiz show: “Identify This!”
Drama with Spanish subtitles: “TIME TAXI”
Since our drama “Crisis” was selected by MIPTV's “Asia World Premiere” in 2017, we feel that the breadth of our international business has been steadily expanding. Sales are growing and we are expecting record sales this year’.
Several of our drama titles like “CRISIS” and “TIME TAXI” are licensed to broadcasters and OTT platforms in North America. We also had some discussions with US production companies for our drama title remakes.
There are numerous OTT platforms around the globe.
Asia is still a big market for us. Also, the Middle East is one of the growth markets. We are working to expand our business opportunities in North and South America.
Kansai TV produces more than 10 dramas a year, and its prime-time drama is usually highly acclaimed in Japan and overseas. We bring to Cannes “He Who Can't Marry” Season 2. S1, which launched in 2006, was highly rated and remade in South Korea. It is based on a popular original script that is still in high demand both in Japan and overseas, and it successfully met the expectations we set during S2.
