Weekly Shonen Jump editor-in-chief Hiroyuki Nakano announced on July 21, 2017 that Tomorrow Studios and Shueisha would be producing a live-action television adaptation of Eiichiro Oda's manga One Piece. Eiichiro Oda will serve as executive producer for the series alongside Tomorrow Studios CEO Marty Adelstein and Becky Clements.
Speaking about the series, Oda commented that "the first condition [he] presented is that the live-action [sic] will be faithful to the fans who have supported ‘One Piece’ for 20 years" . A few days later, Adelstein predicted that the series' budget "could set a new record for the highest production cost in television drama history" as "the work's worldwide fame merits this scale of production".
