FH14 asks on twitter: "any updates on LG15 Italy/Japan, any at all, that you can give to us patient LG15 fans?"
LG15 first reported in March 2009 on EQAL's announcement of a licensing deal with Shinto Tsushin to distribute dubbed versions of Lonelygirl15 and KateModern in Japan. In June, Greg Goodfried updated fans to let them know that "we licensed LG15 to a Japanese company, so lonelygirl15 and KateModern will find a whole new life with a Japanese audience, and they might produce a local version of LG15 for Japan."
Deals like this, however, can take lots of time to come to fruition.
A bit farther back, EQAL first announced on June 4, 2008 a partnership with Italy-based M.A.D. Entertainment to create an Italian-language lonelygirl15 spinoff. Subsequent to that announcement, the Polish lonelygirl15 spinoff n1ckola has come and gone, though a second season of n1ckola may materialize at some future date.
