Kitagawa Keiko to star in upcoming Fuji TV drama as a detective
This will be her first time to be the lead for a serial drama on Fuji TV.
"Tantei no Tantei ('Detective versus Detectives')" is a live-action adaptation of Matsuoka Keisuke's popular novel series of the same name.
In the drama, Kitagawa will play the female detective Sasaki Rena who is both beautiful and smart. She works for a medium-sized research agency called Suma Research Agency. Because of her past related to her sister's death, she became a detective that investigates and pursues unscrupulous detectives.
Reportedly, there will be hard action scenes, and Kitagawa is said to be taking kickboxing training in order to prepare. Also, according to Kitagawa who has read the script up to the 4th episode, "I haven't found a single smiling scene for me so far. This would be my first role in a serial drama that does not smile at all." She also said, "Since it's a very exciting role, I can't wait for filming to begin."
'Tantei no Tantei' will begin airing in July on Fuji TV (every Thursday at 10:00 pm).
