Dive Into The Gritty World Of “Tokyo Vice!”
I cannot wait for this new thriller coming to HBOMax in early April – because it’s based on this real-life thriller:
I loved this book, and the series “Tokyo Vice” is inspired by American journalist Jake Adelstein’s nonfiction, firsthand account of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police beat.
As they announced:
“The crime drama, filmed on location in Tokyo, captures Adelstein’s (Ansel Elgort) daily descent into the neon-soaked underbelly of Tokyo in the late ‘90s, where nothing and no one is truly what or who they seem.”
Here is the trailer for the series:
The series will premiere with three episodes on Thursday, April 7, followed by two episodes airing every Thursday until the season finale on April 28.
I own the book that the series is based on, which is riveting:
