Wowow, Japan’s largest premium pay broadcaster, has acquired Golden Globe-nominated ABC series “The Good Doctor” from Sony Pictures Television. It will begin broadcasts in Japan from April 2018.
Wowow offers a mix of sports, music, film, TV drama and other entertainment programming to nearly 2.8 million subscribers via three channels and a streaming service. The broadcaster also makes original programming, including a five-part alien invasion series, “Yocho ‘Foreboding’”. Wowow began airing the Kiyoshi Kurosawa-directed “Foreboding” in September. It has since been reedited into a feature film.
