Gannibal is a thriller that will leave audiences gasping with shock after every episode,” producer Teruhisa Yamamoto said in a statement. “But it’s also a human story that reflects upon the differences between family values and culture that, at a glance, seem so contradictory and yet are so relatable. With Gannibal and our other Japanese local content, we are building on Disney’s rich history of storytelling and are combining it with Japanese creativity to open new doors of entertainment for everyone.”

Gannibal is directed by Shinzo Katayama from a screenplay written by Takamasa Oe. The adaptation will be led by Yuya Yagira, Shô Kasamatsu, and Riho Yoshioka.

“Set in the fictional Japanese village of Kuge, the series follows newly hired local police officer Daigo Agawa,” reads the synopsis. “While things start off promisingly for the new arrival, a series of alarming events begin to unfold that will lead Daigo to the horrifying realization that something is deeply wrong with the village and those who live there. Thrown into a hostile environment with suspense around every corner, will the latest police officer to roam the streets of Kuge village be able to bring those responsible to justice before it’s too late?”
