Nakama Yukie to star in new NHK Spring 2015 drama "Bijo to Danshi"

Nakama Yukie will be starring in the new NHK Spring 2015 drama "Bijo to Danshi" (A Beauty and a Man) which will begin its run from 14 April in the Tuesdays 10pm timeslot. This will be the longest-running drama in this timeslot to date as it will consist of 20 episodes. Nakama plays the role of Ichiko who gets transferred to work as a celebrity manager and tries to help a newbie actor Ryo (Machida Keita) who she scouted to become a big star. Despite her capabilities, Ichiko is not a popular person in the entertainment world due to her arrogance and unwillingness to compromise and ask others for favours in a humble manner. As such, she and Ryo will have to fight an uphill battle in order for him to become successful and they transform from arch enemies to lovers as time goes by. Co-stars include Segawa Ryo, Tokunaga Eri, Maekawa Yasuyuki, Azuma Mikihisa, Takahashi George, Morimoto Leo and Kusakari Masao. The scriptwriter will be Tabuchi Kumiko.

Nakama commented that as this is the first time she is taking on a NHK Tuesdays 10pm drama as the lead and this is the longest-running drama to date, she is very honoured to be given the leading role but also worried at the same time. However, as the story is about the entertainment world and she plays such an interesting character, Nakama said that she is very excited about the filming.
