5th Japan Contents Pitch Event Held

On August 29th, the Consulate General of Japan in Los Angeles, along with JETRO Los Angeles and the United Talent Agency (UTA), co-hosted the 5th Japan Contents Pitch event.
Consul General Sone participated in the event via video message and gave a welcome speech . He stated that he looked forward to seeing more Japanese content transcend national borders and reach the global stage. Mr. Masi Oka, also an adviser to this event, was joined by TBS TV, TV Tokyo, Yomiuri TV, and TV Asahi, to pitch four Japanese TV dramas for adaptation for the U.S. market. The pitch event was attended by 53 participants, including buyers and producers working in drama production for streaming and cable broadcasters in Hollywood.

As the U.S. content industry faces an ever-increasing demand for captivating and compelling stories, demand for remakes of non-US content is on the rise. The Consulate General of Japan has hosted four previous pitch events since 2019 to date.
