Japan Gets First 3D Series, And It's a Drama!

Posted Mon Jan 17, 2011 at 07:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

'Tokyo Air Traffic Controller' starts airing on January 19th.

Sure, the name may be less than optimal, but the drama about air traffic controllers is getting Japanese audiences excited. It's the first 3D television series and it starts on the 19th. Don't even act like a show about air traffic controllers is somehow beneath American audiences. We watch crab fishermen, truck drivers, and even shows about rich people being rich.

The show, dubbed 'Tokyo Control,' is a 10 part drama created by Fuji TV. During the press conference for this new show, one of Fuji TV's execs came right out and said something akin to "Don't tell me a drama series can't work in 3D." Google Translate really isn't up to the task for a direct quote.

'Tokyo Control' will be available to the 391,000 subscribers to SkyPerfecTV's high definition service, and will air in both 2D and 3D so no one has to miss the show.
