Akira Kurosawa, from Japan, is one of the most influential filmmakers in the history of cinema. His films explore the Japanese culture and are a commentary of Japanese society of his time. His directorial vision is marked by flawless camera movement, setting the scene and characters in harmony to portray their position in the film. Every frame is a story in a Kurosawa movie.

What are some of the Kurosawa films I should watch?

Some of the Kurosawa films you should definitely include Rashomon, on which the show will be based. Apart from this watch Yojimbo which influenced Sergio Leone's Clint Eastwood starrer A Fistful of Dollars. Other notable films include Drunken Angel, Seven Samurai, Ikiru, Throne of Blood, which is considered one of the finest foreign adaptations of Shakespeare's Macbeth, and Ran.

Who will star in and direct this new show? Will it be in Japanese?

The show is still in nascent stages so no actors or directors have been shortlisted. Considering the global outreach of television shows now, they will probably make the show in English for greater accessibility among viewers. If not, they will assuredly have subtitles.

When and where is the show releasing?
