It was announced that Aragaki Yui will star in a new TBS drama "Sora Tobu Kouhoushitsu", which is a drama adaptation of Arikawa Hiro's novel of the same name.

The drama will be directed by Doi Nobuhiro, who has previously worked with Aragaki with the movies "Hanamizuki" and "Kirin no Tsubasa ~Gekijoban Shinzanmono~".

In the drama, Aragaki will play a beautiful TV director named "Inaba Rika". Rika became a news reporter, which was her dream since childhood, however, she was transferredto an informative TV program as a director, after her forcible way of news gathering activities provoked people's antipathy.

Aragaki's co-star will be Ayano Go, who's gaining popularity through his appearances in several dramas. Ayano's role will be a former fighter aircraft pilot named "Sorai Daisuke". Daisuke had a dream to be a pilot of "Blue Impulse" since he was little, and the dream was about to come true. However, he was involved in an accident, and it caused him to be assigned to the public relations office. It was also announced Daisuke's boss "SagisakaMasashi" will be played by Shibata Kyohei. Sagisaka is said to be an ideal boss with outstanding negotiation skills and known as a "trickster, Sagisaka".

Aragaki commented, "Sometimes, when reading the script, I feel frustrated at Rika's straightforwardness toward her job, which makes her too blind with work. But she is just like us, as she makes mistakes and gets depressed which makes her figure things out, but sometimes she repeats the mistakes without noticing anything. She comes to a stop, and starts running again....I believe there will be many things that make you feel something through Rika. I will do my best to make it happen."

The two characters, "Inaba Rika" and "Sorai Daisuke", who had to give up on their childhood dreams and run into the walls presented in their lives, are sure to win the sympathy of many viewers who have experience with labor and work.

"Sora Tobu Kouhoushitsu" is schedule for broadcast starting on April 14th on TBS (every Sunday at 9:00 pm).
