Sawamura Ikki will be starring in the NTV Autumn 2016 drama "Rental Kyuuseishu" (Rental Saviour) which will begin its run from October in the Sundays 10.30pm timeslot. The drama features Sawamura as Akenabe Yugo who is a nice guy with huge debts and becomes a "rental saviour" for the sake of his wife. With just a phone call, anyone can engage a rental saviour for a limited period to solve their problems. Sawamura commented that he has never played such a character before and feels that there is meaning in taking on this role which he hopes that the viewers will like as well. Co-stars include Johnny's WEST member Fujii Ryuusei who also plays a rental saviour Aoi Denjiro while Shida Mirai plays a mysterious young woman who is saved by Akenabe and Aoi on their first mission.

Filming starts in early September.
