Amazon Prime Video has commissioned a Japanese adaptation of Australian comedy No Activity as an Amazon Original.
The format was originally created by Trent O’Donnell and Patrick Brammall and produced by Jungle Entertainment for Australian streaming service Stan in 2015.
It has since been picked up for adaptation in multiple countries, including CBS All Access/Paramount+ in the US, HBO Max in Spain, NPO3 in the Netherlands, Streamz in Belgium, RTL Now in Germany and OSN for the Middle East.
The series tells the story of two detectives on a stakeout, along with two officers at the station and a pair of criminals who discuss their personal lives while all waiting for a crime to take place.
