Ghanaian Filmmaker To Direct Episode 8 of American Hit Series ‘Shogun’

Ghana’s entertainment industry has received a major boost with the announcement that film director and writer Emmanuel Osei Kuffour Jr will be directing an episode of the American historical drama TV series, Shogun.

According to the report that was first shared by 3News, Osei Kuffour Jr’s extensive experience and understanding of Japanese culture, gained from living in Japan for nearly ten years, will augment his new capacity.

His feature debut, “Black Box,” was well-received and solidified his reputation as a talented storyteller in the sci-fi thriller genre as part of the “Welcome to the Blumhouse” collection.

Shōgun is a historical drama television miniseries produced by Rachel Kondo and Justin Marks. It is adapted from James Clavell’s novel of the same name, which was first made into a miniseries in 1980.

The show debuted its initial two episodes on February 27, 2024, on Hulu and FX, followed by weekly releases of the remaining 10 episodes.

Shōgun depicts the clash between two driven individuals from contrasting backgrounds and a secretive female samurai; John Blackthorne, a daring English seaman who finds himself stranded in Japan, a country whose unique customs will transform him; Lord Toranaga, a cunning, influential daimyo, facing off against his treacherous political adversaries; and Lady Mariko, a woman with exceptional abilities but tainted family connections, who must demonstrate her worth and loyalty.
