Japan Story is published today
We’re delighted to announce that Amazon Prime Video has greenlit its first Italian original series, an untitled drama series inspired by true crime memoir Mafia Princess by Marisa Merico which was published by HarperCollins in 2010.
The first ever Italian Prime Original drama series is a crime drama set in Milan in the late eighties which tells the story of a shy, insecure teenager who becomes the youngest member of the mafia, not for money, ambition or the desire of power, but to win the love of her father.
International publishing rights for the Mafia Princess book are being handled by Martin Redfern (with Dutch, German, Italian, Polish, Serbian and Slovakian rights already sold). TV rights were acquired by Wildside from James Carroll.
Shooting will begin later in 2019 before launching exclusively on Prime Video in over 200 countries and territories around the world.
