In the new show, the Japanese consultant and her team will travel to one small town in the US to offer advice on how best to organize all its public spaces including the fire station, the mayor’s office, parks and schools, and also restaurants and bars.
Not surprisingly in view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, dates for the shooting of the production have yet to be announced. However, towns that would like to feature in the series have been invited to register on the Tidy My Town website. As it stands, no details have been given as to the number of episodes that will constitute “Sparking Joy with Marie Kondo” or its future release date.
As well as starring in the reality TV show, Kondo will also act as executive producer.
A Japanese essayist specializing in tidying and personal development, Kondo rose to international fame with the release of her show “Tidying Up with Marie Kondo,” which released on Netflix in January 2019. The eight-episode series offered customized advice to American families who were overwhelmed by a lack of organization. IB /ra
