Based on the true stories and ventures of adult filmmaker Toru Muranishi, The Naked Director will take audiences inside the Japanese adult film industry and showcase just how Muranishi revolutionized it.
Set during the ’80s economic boom, the show chronicles the director’s rise to fame, his ambitions, and his setbacks. The Netflix Originals series will star Takayuki Yamada (Isle of Dogs), Shinnosuke Mitsushima (The Big White Tower), and Tetsuji Tamayama (The Vulture). Watch the new trailer above.
Netflix also shared an official summary which can be read below:
“The 10 episode series will chronicle his rise to fame, filled with big ambitions as well as spectacular setbacks in his unflinching attempt to turn Japan’s porn industry on its head. It will also be a portrait of an ensemble of characters who experience success and failure in Japan’s “bubble” era of the 1980s, a time that gave rise to unprecedented splendor and excess.”
All 10-episodes of The Naked Director will premiere on Netflix August 8.
