Listen to (and share) the first episode of Deadline’s audio podcast “Global Showbiz Watch, with Nancy Tartaglione.” Deadline’s international editor talks with host David Bloom about Rupert Murdoch’s latest backpedal over the long-festering British newspaper scandals; the new investment tie-up between media powerhouses Bruno Wu and Thomas Middlehoff; and whether China is loosening its restrictions on filmmakers. Finally, with the imminent debuts of The Wolverine, which was filmed substantially in Japan, and a samurai remake of the Oscar-winning Western Unforgiven, they spotlight the entertainment business in the Land of the Rising Sun.
