Sunrise to Co-Produce Live-Action Cowboy Bebop Television Series

Variety and Deadline are both reporting that Tomorrow Studios, a partnership between producer Marty Adelstein and ITV Studios, will produce a live-action television series adaptation of the 1998 television anime Cowboy Bebop. Chris Yost will write the adaptation.

Sunrise, the studio that animated the original series, will executive produce the live-action series. Other executive producers will include Adelstein, Becky Clements, Midnight Radio, and Matthew Weinberg. Midnight Radio is composed of Josh Appelbaum, Andre Nemec, Jeff Pinkner, and Scott Rosenberg.

Adelstein said, “We are excited to work with Sunrise in bringing this beloved anime to the U.S. and global marketplace as a live-action series.” The producer also said, “The animated version has long resonated with audiences worldwide, and with the continued, ever growing, popularity of anime, we believe a live action version will have an incredible impact today.”
