Tiffcom: Nippon TV Format Deal for ‘Housekeeper’ Points to Catalog Strength

Nippon TV has licensed the scripted format rights to its hit drama series “I’m Mita, Your Housekeeper” for remake by Turkey’s Medyapim and Mf Yapim. The deal was announced on Monday, just days before the start of Tiffcom, the rights market adjunct to the Tokyo International Film Festival.

The show follows the exploits of a super housekeeper who perfectly completes everything she is asked to do. She works without emotion and never deviates from the task, but often comes up with unusual solutions. A ratings winner, the show has won numerous prizes including the Tokyo Drama Awards Grand Prix.

Tiffcom is this year moving entirely online as a move that reflects the difficulties of in-person meetings at the time when the coronavirus is still rampant in many parts of the world. But like the market, and housekeeper Mita, Nippon TV is showing its ability to cope with the industry’s systemic change.
