Sayako Aoki, head of scripted format sales at Nippon TV, discusses how the market is changing, the impact of streaming and what new IP the Japanese company is showcasing in C21’s Digital Screenings this week.

 

Nippon TV has been in the headlines in recent weeks, reflecting how busy the Japanese company has been shopping its content around the globe and forging international alliances. On the sales front, Nippon has been sending scripted formats into territories as varied as Turkey and Spain, having particular success with a well-travelled drama called Mother.

 

The company has also seen sales for another scripted format, Oasis – A Love Story, which follows an unhappy 27-year-old woman who feigns memory loss in order to embed herself into a loving family. To further grow its international drama business, the company most recently partnered with London-based media company Envision Entertainment to jointly develop an innovative project called CONNECTED, a crime drama series taking place largely online.
