Today, Apple TV+ unveiled the premiere date for the new multilingual French-Japanese drama “Drops of God.” The eight-episode series from Legendary Entertainment, adapted from the New York Times bestselling Japanese manga series of the same name, will premiere on Friday, April 21 with two episodes followed by one episode weekly until June 2, 2023.
Filmed in French, Japanese, and English, “Drops of God” stars Fleur Geffrier (“Das Boat,” “Elle”) and Tomohisa Yamashita (“The Head,” “Tokyo Vice,” “Alice in Borderland”). The series is set in the world of gastronomy and fine wines. Frenchman Alexandre Léger, the creator of the famous Léger Wine Guide and emblematic figure in oenology, has just passed away at his home in Tokyo at the age of 60. He leaves behind a daughter, Camille (Geffrier), who lives in Paris and hasn’t seen her father since her parents separated when she was nine years old.
When Camille flies to Tokyo and Léger’s will is read, she discovers that her father has left her an extraordinary wine collection – the greatest collection in the world according to the experts. But, to claim the inheritance, Camille must compete with a brilliant young oenologist, Issei Tomine (Yamashita). Biological daughter versus spiritual son: the duel is about to begin. There are three tests to break the tie, all related to wine tasting. The winner will take ownership of Léger’s empire, the loser will leave empty-handed. But how could Camille win such a duel? She knows nothing about wine, and worse: she has never drunk a single drop.
