TV3 and Nippon TV Jointly Produce Hit Comedy “J.K.K. Season 2” with Support from Japanese Government—Starts Airing November 2016

Primeworks Studios is proud to introduce “J.K.K. (Jenaka Kampung Kalut) Season 2,” a comedy-drama series co-produced with Japan’s largest broadcaster Nippon Television Network Corporation (Nippon TV) and Sumitomo Corporation, to begin airing on November 20, 2016 on TV3. The project was selected for sponsorship by Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications due to its outbound and inbound marketing prospects.

“J.K.K.” (chaotic village comedy) first went on the air in February 2016 on TV3 and garnered stellar viewer ratings. The upcoming second season will feature a new Japanese character who introduces various goods and regional travel destinations from her country, while still delighting viewers with the usual characters who can’t help but find themselves in hilarious situations before somehow managing to find a solution and laugh it off in the end. The name of the Japanese character is Mikan Nakamura, whose first name means orange in Japanese. Ten episodes of the second season will be shot in the studio, while three episodes will be filmed on location in Ehime, Nagano and Tokyo.
