Apple TV+ acquires global rights to Legendary Entertainment’s Drops of God

Drops of God was adated from a Japanese manga series

Apple TV+ has acquired worldwide rights to the drama adaptation of Japanese manga series Drops of God from Legendary Entertainment.

Commissioned by pubcaster France Télévisions and streaming service Hulu Japan, the live-action adaptation finds the world of gastronomy and fine wines in mourning as Alexandre Léger, creator of the famous Léger Wine Guide, has just passed away at his home in Tokyo.

When his daughter flies to Tokyo and Léger’s will is read, she discovers that her father has left her an extraordinary wine collection – but to claim the inheritance, she must compete with a brilliant young oenologist her father took under his wing.

The eight-episode project is produced by Legendary Television and Dynamic Television in association with Adline Entertainment. It is based on the bestselling Japanese manga series created and written by Tadashi Agi, with artwork by Shu Okimoto.

It will premiere globally on Apple TV+, excluding Japan, later this year. Written by series creator Quoc Dang Tran (Marianne, Parallel), the French- and Japanese-language series stars Fleur Geffrier (Das Boat, Elle) and Tomohisa Yamashita (The Head, Tokyo Vice). It is executive produced by Klaus Zimmermann (Borgia, Trapped) and directed by Oded Ruskin (No Man’s Land, Absentia).
