Atresmedia to Adapt Nippon TV’s Mother


Atresmedia has reached a deal with Nippon TV to remake the hit Japanese drama Mother.

This is now the eighth international scripted-format deal for the show, following Nippon TV’s pacts with CJ ENM in South Korea, MF Yapim in Turkey, STB TV in Ukraine, JSL Global Media in Thailand, Radiant Pictures in China, GoPlay in Indonesia and Incognita in France.

“The poignant drama, which revolves around the universal theme of family and what it ultimately means to be a mother, continues to resonate across borders and achieve ratings success,” said Mikiko Nishiyama, managing director of international business development for Nippon TV. “We have found great partners in Atresmedia and we cannot wait to see their version which is certain to be well-received by the drama-loving audiences in Spain.”

Mercedes Gamero, director of acquisitions and sales at Atresmedia, added, “At Atresmedia we are extremely thrilled to have joined forces with our great partner Nippon TV to bring the beloved series Mother into Spanish for our audience. They will now enjoy our local adaptation of a proven success series that will captivate them for sure.”
