On May 22, NTV announced a new summer drama about a single mother with two children, titled 'Woman' (tentative), starring actress Mitsushima Hikari.

The drama is another original story written by Sakamoto Yuji, the creator of popular dramas such as 'Mother' and 'Saikou no Rikon'. 'Aoyagi Koharu' (Mitsushima) loses her husband in an unforeseen accident and is left with their two children and not much money. Her beloved children give her the strength to keep on living and to challenge all difficulties head-on.

Koharu's own mother will be played by actress Tanaka Yuko, and actor Kobayashi Kaoru will play her father. Moreover, the supporting cast is going to feature the two actresses Nikaido Fumi andTanimura Mitsuki

Child actress Suzuki Rio was cast in the role of Koharu's oldest daughter. She already impressed as the young 'Yae' in the current NHK taiga drama 'Yae no Sakura'. The child actor for the role of her younger brother has yet to be decided.

NTV is going to air 'Woman' every Wednesday at 10:00 pm starting in July.
