eOne secures Tokyo Trial

Entertainment One (eOne) has acquired the worldwide distribution rights for WW2 miniseries Tokyo Trial.

Tokyo Trial is produced by NHK of Japan, FATT (Netherlands) and Don Carmody Television (DCTV) of Canada, and depicts the post-WW2 trial of Pacific war criminals by the International Military Tribunal for the Far East.

Based on the original idea by NHK, the factual drama is co-directed by Pieter Verhoeff (The Moving True Story of a Woman Ahead of Her Time) and Rob W King (Something More, Hungry Hills). Shinsuke Naito and Takashi Enjo (NHK), Hans De Weers (FATT), and Don Carmody and David Cormican (DCTV) are the exec producers.

A four-part historical drama recreating the trial that began in 1946, the series combines authentic trial footage with dramatic enactments based on true events.

Tokyo Trial is available as a four-part miniseries and as a 105-minute feature film. The feature began its festival tour with a premiere at the Netherlands Film Festival earlier this week.

The series has been nominated for Best TV Movie or Miniseries in the International Emmies. The winner will be announced in New York on November 20.
