Deadline has reported that the first episode of the time-spanning drama series ‘Pachinko’ has been published.


The pilot episode’s script was made available to those who are interested in getting a closer look at the writing behind the show. ‘Pachinko’ began showing on the Apple TV+ platform on March 25, adapted from the best-selling novel of the same title.

The manuscript is identified as ‘Chapter One’ and has a listing of ‘101’ by Soo Hugh, the executive producer and director. The episode tells a story of Solomon attempting to get a promotion in 80s New York with a flashback of his grandmother living in Japanese-occupied Korea.
