Apple TV+ announced today its acquisition of Drops of God, a new multilingual French-Japanese drama series, from Legendary Entertainment.
Adapted from Drops of God, the New York Times best-selling Japanese manga series created and written by award-winning Tadashi Agi, with artwork by Shu Okimoto and published by Kodansha, the series Drops of God is an eight-episode drama starring Fleur Geffrier (Das Boot, Le Code, Alter Ego) and Tomohisa Yamashita (The Head, Tokyo Vice, Alice in Borderland).
The world of gastronomy and fine wines is in mourning as Alexandre Léger, creator of the famous Léger Wine Guide and emblematic figure in oenology, has just passed away at his home in Tokyo at the age of 60. He leaves behind a daughter, Camille (Geffrier), who lives in Paris and hasn’t seen her father since her parents separated when she was nine years old. When Camille flies to Tokyo and Léger’s will is read, she discovers that her father has left her an extraordinary wine collection — the greatest collection in the world, according to the experts. But, to claim the inheritance, Camille must compete with a brilliant young oenologist, Issei Tomine (Yamashita), whom her father took under his wing and is referred to in Léger’s will as his “spiritual son.” But is his connection to Issei only spiritual?
Produced by Les Productions Dynamic in association with 22H22 and Adline Entertainment, Drops of God is written by series creator Quoc Dang Tran (Marianne, Parallels, Call My Agent!), executive produced by Klaus Zimmermann (Borgia, Trapped), and directed by Oded Ruskin (No Man’s Land, Absentia).
Drops of God will premiere on Apple TV+ (excluding Japan) in 2023 (date tba). The series is presented in partnership with France Télévisions and Hulu Japan.
