Fuji TV's FOD (Fuji TV On Demand) streaming service announced on Thursday that it is producing a live-action series adaptation of Maki Marukido's Pornographer boys' love manga. The show will premiere on FOD on July 28, and then on Fuji TV on August 8.

The series stars Terunosuke Takezai (right in image above) as Rio Kijima, and Kenta Izuka (left) as Haruhiko Kusumi.

The manga's story begins when college student Kusumi injures Kijima's arm in a bike accident. Kijima asks Kusumi to not pay the hospital bill, and instead write down his dictation. It turns out that Kijima is an author of erotic novels. As their work proceeds, Kusumi is drawn more and more to the voice of Kijima, even as he depicts erotic scenes with his words.

Marukido published the manga in Shodensha's on BLUE magazine in 2016, and it has one compiled book volume. Marukido also published a spinoff manga in on BLUE in 2016 titled Indigo no Kibun. The manga also has one compiled book volume.
