Nippon TV’s award-winning producer, Hisashi Tsugiya, received an award from the Broadcast Creators Association of Japan, which promotes and aims to contribute to the success and further development of the broadcast culture in Japan.

Tsugiya was awarded as an individual for his long-time commitment to creating many memorable drama series, notably Mother, Woman -My Life for My Children-, and anone. One major criteria for receiving the award was the international adaptations of Mother and Woman -My Life for My Children-.
 
‘I am so honored to be awarded by the association and am especially happy that they valued the fact that my series were adapted internationally and appreciated in the local countries. I could not have done this by myself, and I would like to acknowledge the scriptwriter Yuji Sakamoto who I had the honor of working together on three major series’, described Tsugiya.

And he concludes: ‘When I look back, all of the series I created were not easy to produce, and at times I had to convince many people to realize the stories. When they aired, it was quite fulfilling to hear the reaction from the audience, to know that my message got across. Then, the series were given a new life, thanks to my dear international partners, and I’d like to take this opportunity to express my deepest respect and gratitude to their adaptations as well’.
