Matsushima Nanako to star in new TBS drama SP to mark the 70th anniversary of WWII's end

Matsushima Nanako will be starring in the yet untitled TBS drama SP to mark the 70th anniversary since the end of WWII which will be shown in August on two nights. The drama is produced by the crew responsible for the hit drama "Hanzawa Naoki". Filming began in Shizuoka from 15 May and will also be done overseas at locations such as Shenyang and Beijing in China for a month until the end of July. This is the first time in 15 years that Matsushima is acting in a TBS drama since "Hyakunen no Monogatari" in 2000.

Matsushima plays the role of Amano Kiyo who becomes a military nurse in order to serve her country and gets married to a man in the Manchurian expedition. However, as the war intensifies, Kiyo tries to survive in the tough times after her husband dies and she has to leave her son behind in order to continue with her work. During WWII, as many as 35,000 women served as military nurses and 1,120 of them passed away in the line of duty.
