Apple has won a bidding war to develop Min Jin Lee's bestselling novel Pachinko into a TV series, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Pachinko was named one of the best ten books of 2017 by The New York Times and was also a National Book Award finalist.
It follows the hopes and dreams of four generations of a Korean immigrant family, across Korea, Japan, and the U.S., so the show will be told in those three countries’ languages.
The Hollywood Reporter notes that the TV deal comes on the heels of Crazy Rich Asians’ opening in theaters, and that their successes could potentially “open the door for more culturally specific stories and reshape Hollywood.”
