DESCRIPTION:
(from FX's press release, September 2021) Shōgun, FX's limited series period drama based on the best-selling novel by James Clavell, has cast Anna Sawai as "Lady Mariko," completing the trio of leads that also features Hiroyuki Sanada and Cosmo Jarvis. The ensemble cast will also feature Tadanobu Asano, Fumi Nikaido, Tokuma Nishioka, Takehiro Hira, Ako, Shinnosuke Abe, Yasunari Takeshima, Hiroto Kanai, Toshi Toda, Hiro Kanagawa, Nestor Carbonell, Yuki Kura, Tommy Bastow, Moeka Hoshi, Yoriko Doguchi and Yuka Kouri. Director Jonathan van Tulleken has come aboard to direct the first two episodes with production now underway in Vancouver. Shōgun, set in feudal Japan, charts the collision of two ambitious men from different worlds and a mysterious female samurai. John Blackthorne, a risk-taking English pilot major ends up shipwrecked in Japan, a land whose unfamiliar culture will ultimately redefine him. Lord Toranaga, a shrewd, powerful daimyo, is at odds with his own dangerous, political rivals. And Lady Mariko, a woman with invaluable skills but dishonorable family ties, must prove her value and allegiance.
