Apple TV+ has acquired the rights to stream the French-Japanese drama Drops of God, adapted from the New York Times bestselling manga of the same name by Legendary Entertainment.
The manga was created by award-winner Tadashi Agi. Shu Okimoto made the artwork and Kodansha was the publisher. The show will be written by creator Quoc Dang Tran, and directed by Oded Ruskin.
The official synopsis reads:
“Drops of God” finds the world of gastronomy and fine wines 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), who 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?”
Drops of God is set to premiere sometime in 2023 on Apple TV+ in all territories apart from Japan.
