Amuse Group USA is a subsidiary of the Japanese powerhouse agency Amuse Inc.
In 2016, Amuse USA launched J-CREATION: A FIRST LOOK SHOWCASE, a content-matching project bridging the gap between Japanese rights holders and US filmmakers to facilitate the adaptation of Japanese IP into English-language TV and films (for more information, please visit http://j-creation.us/).
Via J-CREATION and other activities, we have brought over 50 Japanese IP to the attention of American buyers since then. In 2018, the Hollywood adaptation of Fuji TV’s TRAIN MAN (Showrunner Phil Rosenthal, Director Adam Shankman) was announced at MIPCOM. Also, TV Tokyo’s midnight series DEAD STOCK was optioned by Sony Television (with Roy Lee's Vertigo Entertainment and Intrigue as producing partners) in 2018. For another TV Tokyo title THE OFFICE OF THE DEAD, Amuse partnered with Feigco and recently closed a deal with Lionsgate TV. (in Japanese - https://www.oricon.co.jp/confidence/special/53112/)
Repped by Paradigm, one of Hollywood’s major agencies, we are currently in active development on more than 15 projects with writers, producers, studios, and financiers, and continue to bring a variety of new Japanese IP to our global business partners. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
