Production press conference of FujiTV Summer 2015 drama "Risk no Kamisama"
The production press conference of FujiTV Summer 2015 drama "Risk no Kamisama" was held on 25 June which was attended by cast members Tsutsumi Shinichi, Toda Erika, Morita Go, Kohinata Fumio, Shiga Kotaro and Hira Mikijiro. The drama which begins its run from 8 July in the Wednesdays 10pm timeslot, features Tsutsumi as a risk management specialist who works with his team to solve the problems faced by various companies. Tsutsumi commented that the theme of this drama is especially timely with the string of corporate problems happening of late. He did wonder if it was appropriate to highlight these issues in a drama but he was highly encouraged by the strong cast line-up and the fantastic atmosphere on the set that he thinks that this will be a high quality production. However, the huge amount of lines he has to memorise this time is rather overwhelming so he feels as if he has almost used up all of his memory capacity in his brain. As for Toda, she plays a capable woman who knows 5 languages but as she can only speak Japanese and has to conduct a conversation in English in episode 5, she will try her best to deal with the situation when they get to that scene.
