In addition, the series is a co-production between Netflix and Tomorrow Studios. If you'll recall, Tomorrow is also behind the streaming giant's Cowboy Bebop adaption, which cast John Cho as bounty hunter Spike Spiegel and, more importantly, a real corgi as Ein. Steven Maeda (CSI: Miami, Lost, The X-Files) will serve as the series' showrunner, while Matt Owens (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Luke Cage, The Defenders) will serve as a writer and executive producer.
One Piece was first published in 1997, and its impressively long-running anime series that's still ongoing premiered way back in 1999. It revolves around the main protagonist named Monkey D. Luffy, a pirate whose body has the properties of rubber. He's on a quest to find the legendary treasure "One Piece" to become the Pirate King. It'll be interesting to see how Luffy's rubbery and stretchable limbs will look in a live-action show, though we'll have to wait for more information to find out when the series will start streaming.
