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).
