Thailand’s Line TV has become the latest operator to acquire Japanese scripted format Mother.
Production house JSL Global Media acquired the scripted format rights from Japan’s Nippon TV and is set to launch the show on streaming service Line TV from today. JSL Global Media previously acquired the Thai adaptation rights to Nippon TV’s drama Abandoned.
Atsushi Sogo, president of international business development for Nippon TV, said: “Mother has secured scripted format deals in Turkey, South Korea, Ukraine, France, and now Thailand. We have faith in another great production, telling the acclaimed story to more audiences in the world and are delighted to be announcing this second deal with JSL Global Media.”
“After the success with Abandoned, we are very pleased to continue working with Nippon TV for the Mother remake,” added Thiti Sutthikulphanich, executive producer for JSL Global Media.
“We believe Mother will be well received by Thai audiences. Not only that the story is very touching, but it also has a hint of suspense drama in it.”
