We’re incredibly happy to announce that our Naomi J. Ogawa has been cast as the role of Yoko Tanaka in Tim Burton’s upcoming live-action Addams Family series.

Titled Wednesday, the coming-of-age comedy, written by Smallville creators Al Gough and Miles Millar and to be directed by Burton, is a sleuthing, supernaturally infused mystery charting Wednesday Addams’ years as a student at Nevermore Academy, where she attempts to master her emerging psychic ability, thwart a monstrous killing spree that has terrorized the local town, and solve the supernatural mystery that embroiled her parents 25 years ago.

Yoko is one of “the cool kids” at Nevermore Academy, “a vampire with Harajuku-inspired Goth flair”.

Wednesday is produced by MGM/UA Television for Netflix, with filming to commence shortly and a release date to be announced.
