Kuriyama Chiaki to star in new NHK drama "Copyface ~ Kesareta Watashi ~"

Kuriyama Chiaki will be starring in the new NHK drama "Copyface ~ Kesareta Watashi" (Copyface ~ The me who was erased) based on the romance novel "Mirror Image" by US writer Sandra Brown. The drama which consists of 6 episodes, will begin its run from 18 November in the Fridays 10pm timeslot. The script is written by Shinozaki Eriko who was responsible for NHK morning drama "Mare" and various WOWOW dramas.

Kuriyama plays the role of the heroine who is a capable reporter working for a weekly magazine. In a bid to expose a beauty clinic's misdeeds, she gets close to the clinic director's wife to fish for information. While tailing the wife on a flight, the plane crashes and the reporter is mistaken for the wife when she is rescued from the scene. Due to her injuries, she undergoes plastic surgery and becomes the spitting image of the wife. As the reporter has lost her memory for the time being, she mistakenly believes that she is indeed the wife of the director. However, when she regains her memory, she discovers that she has fallen in love with the director who rightfully belongs to someone else and is unsure whether she should live for love and continue with her new identity or justice to regain her original life and expose the truth.

Co-stars include Sato Ryuta, Tamaoki Reo, Ashina Sei, Maeda Aki, Tsurumi Shingo, Tajima Reiko and Terada Minori.
