Two Fuji skeins go over the China’s wall

Dispatch

TOKYO — Japanese network Fuji TV has notched up a first in Chinese program imports: It has sold two dramas to 29 stations controlled by China Great Wall Art & Culture Center (CGWACC), a subsid of government body State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT).

Normally, foreign programs are bought by China Central Television (CCTV). No figures were released, but Fuji TV said the price was similar to that in Hong Kong and Taiwan — high by Chinese standards. The series, “Wedding Planner” and “Emergency Room 24 Hours,” will be aired during primetime, which starts at 9:30 p.m. Fuji TV dramas are already popular in Taiwan and Hong Kong.
