Netflix has announced that they are creating a live action series of “Cowboy Bebop” based on the original Japanese anime series. The series will be made up of 10 episodes with the first being written by Thor’s Christopher Yost. Original anime director Shinichiro Watanabe will act as consultant for the series.
Based on the worldwide phenomenon from Sunrise Inc., Cowboy Bebop is the jazz-inspired, genre-bending story of Spike Spiegel, Jet Black, Faye Valentine and Radical Ed: a rag-tag crew of bounty hunters on the run from their pasts as they hunt down the solar system’s most dangerous criminals. They’ll even save the world…for the right price.
