Popular manga "One Piece" will become a live-action TV drama through a collaboration with a Hollywood production team, according to the firm that publishes the series.

The partner for the live-action drama will be Tomorrow Studios headed by Marty Adelstein, known for his work as executive producer of mega-hit drama series "Prison Break."

Adelstein said in a written statement Friday that he has been a fan of "One Piece" for 20 years and is honored that Shueisha Inc., which runs the manga in its weekly Shonen Jump, and Eiichiro Oda, the author of "One Piece," entrusted his studio to create the live-action drama.
