PHILIPPINES, FEBRUARY 10, 2022 – Tokyo Vice, the new eight-episode Max Original crime drama series by award-winning playwright J.T. Rogers, premieres the same day as the U.Swith three episodes on Thursday, April 7 exclusively on HBO GO. Two episodes will debut every subsequent Thursday leading up to the finale on April 28.
Tokyo Vice is loosely inspired by American journalist Jake Adelstein’s non-fiction first-hand account of the Tokyo Metropolitan Police beat. Filmed on location in Tokyo, the crime drama series captures Adelstein’s (Ansel Elgort) daily descent into the neon-soaked underbelly of Tokyo in the late ‘90s, where nothing and no one is truly what or who they seem.
Tokyo Vice stars Golden Globe® nominee Ansel Elgort, Academy Award® nominee Ken Watanabe, Academy Award® nominee Rinko Kikuchi, Rachel Keller, Ella Rumpf, Hideaki Ito, Show Kasamatsu and Tomohisa Yamashita.
Tony® Award-winning playwright J.T. Rogers created and wrote the series and also serves as executive producer.
