Vertical published the novel in October 2017. Kodansha Publishing USA describes the story:

Japanese animation – globally acclaimed, family-friendly theatrical feature films are the exception rather than the rule for a television-focused industry that has been pushed into late-night time slots in an era of fragmented ratings . While only three titles out of fifty could turn a profit, topping the charts is not too ambitious a goal.
Yet as three women, a producer, director, and host, survive in a company infamous for its murderous schedules, demoralizing compromises, and incorrigible men, moments of uplifting emerge against all odds — and how. More than just a window into an entertainment niche, here’s an awesome ode to work.

magazine house published the novel in Japan with illustrations by TO SQUEEZE in August 2014.
