As the Apple TV + launch event approaches Pachinko, the developers explain how Apple is the only streaming service to cover all production costs. Large networks show interest, but they bauled in the face of the support of a complex plot over the decades, according to founder Theresa Kang-Lowe in a Variety interview.
It explains how the budget is too small for project thinking and multiple time periods, and the production costs and complexity of the script make it unpopular with regular network companies. Soo Hugh, author of ‘Pachinko’ adds that exposure with such a size ‘can never be done’, and that streams did not exist in the last 7 years.
It is normal for shows like ‘Pachinko’ to be funded by multiple networks and distributors. However, the matter was settled when Apple accepted the offer and agreed to pay the full costs of the charges. ‘Pachinko’ will debut on Apple TV + on March 25. The official trailer is available to watch on the official Apple TV + YouTube channel.
