Horikita Maki to star in TBS Winter 2015 drama "Masshiro" as a nurse

Horikita Maki will be starring in the TBS Winter 2015 drama "Masshiro" which begins its run from January 2015 at 10pm on Tuesdays. She will play the role of a nurse named Arimura Juri who works at a celebrity hospital which specialises in treating the rich and famous for huge fees. As such, Juri dreams of meeting a rich man after entering this hospital as a nurse but she also has to come to terms with the internal struggles with her colleagues played by Shida Mirai, Takanashi Rin, Mizuno Miki and Kimura Tae. In the nurse department, nurses are graded according to the work they do and their ranks are represented by the pearls attached to their nurse caps.

Due to the fact that Juri is a new nurse, she has no pearls to her cap.  Her colleagues Matsuoka Nana (Shida) who has a sharp tongue and Wada Kinuko (Takanashi) who is unafraid to take the initiative in relationships are also nurses with no pearls. At the top of the department is the matron Tanojima Kokoro (Kimura) who goes by the principle that whatever happens in the hospital should not be revealed to anyone outside. Any nurse who goes against this will have to leave the hospital. Mizuno will play the surgical nurse Iwabuchi Megumi who is a loner in the department and is always at loggerheads with Tanojima.

Yagira Yuya will play the role of an elite doctor Nakano Kotaro who came back from the US. Although he is initially at odds with Juri at the beginning, they develop a close relationship as time goes by. Last but not least, Ishiguro Ken will play the vice director of the hospital and is rumoured to be romantically involved with the nurses including Iwabuchi.
