"Rashômon" TV Series
Amblin Television will adapt director Akira Kurosawa's classic 1950 feature "Rashômon" into a dramatic mystery episodic TV series, with a plot device involving various characters providing subjective, alternative, self-serving and contradictory versions of a singular event, to be executive produced by Amblin TV's co-presidents Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey:
"We couldn’t be more excited to adapt this extraordinary film as the foundation for a new dramatic mystery thriller series," said Frank and Falvey. "It will explore the boundaries of truth and how different perspectives don't often reveal the same reality."
Brimming with samurai action while examining the nature of truth, "Rashômon" is noted as one of the finest films to investigate the philosophy of justice.
Through an ingenious use of camera and flashbacks, Kurosawa reveals the complexities of human nature as four people recount different versions of the murder of a samurai and the assault of his wife.
