DESCRIPTION:
(from FOX's press release, May 2013) Based on the best-selling 1975 novel by James Clavell, SHOGUN opens a window into the world of a rarely seen feudal Japan. Set in 1600, the story is told from the perspective of British hero John Blackthorne, a sailor who rises from outsider to samurai, while being used as a pawn in Japanese leader Toranaga's struggle to reach the top of the ruling chain, or Shogun. A classic for the ages, SHOGUN is both a cross-cultural exploration of Blackthorne's journey away from the European way of life, and a star-crossed love story, as he falls for the magnificent samurai, Lady Mariko, the married confidant to Toranaga. Michael De Luca ("Moneyball," "The Social Network") and Michaela Clavell will executive-produce the series. Nigel Williams ("Moby Dick," "Elizabeth 1") will write the screenplay.
