Netflix Commissions Unscripted Marie Kondo Show


Netflix has ordered Untitled Marie Kondo Project, an unscripted series led by the titular organization icon/author, from The Jackal Group.

Untitled Marie Kondo Project will look on as Kondo helps people who are at a crossroads transform their lives. The eight-episode series will be executive produced by Kondo, Gail Berman, Joe Earley, Takumi Kawahara and Bianca Barnes-Williams, who is serving as showrunner.

Kondo is the author of the international best seller The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. Her books have sold more than 8.5 million copies in 40-plus countries.

Berman commented: “Marie created an incredible global movement to inspire personal understanding through mindful organization. We’ve seen individuals undergo astonishing and moving personal journeys simply by applying Marie’s approach to their own homes, and we are delighted to work with her and Netflix to share her methods.”

Kondo added: “My mission is to organize the world and spark joy in people’s lives. Through this partnership with Netflix, I am excited to spread the KonMari Method to as many people as possible.”
