The drama SP which is based on the 1991 novel by popular mystery writer Norizuki Rintarou, features Hasegawa as Norizuki who is a struggling mystery writer. Being well-versed in criminology and armed with his sharp deduction powers, Rintarou is often asked to help his father who is a detective at the Metropolitan Police Department's 1st Division, to solve difficult cases. Although Rintarou is usually gentlemanly, sociable and optimistic, he changes into a demanding and strict person when it comes to solving cases. Just then, he gets embroiled into a case where the suspect actually makes use of him to become an alibi. Although the time setting of the novel was 25 years ago, the drama SP will be set in the modern era.

Ihara Tsuyoshi plays Yamakura Shiro who is a director of a real estate company whose son was supposedly to be kidnapped but someone else was taken instead so he is tasked to transport the ransom to the kidnappers.
