Suzuki Ryohei to star in new NTV, WOWOW & Hulu drama "Zenigata Keibu"

Suzuki Ryohei will be starring in the new drama "Zenigata Keibu" which features the police inspector Zenigata Koichi from "Lupin The Third" as the lead. In this new drama to be shown next year, NTV will produce and show the first drama series followed by WOWOW and Hulu with their respective sequels with differing storylines. This is the first time that the three companies are working together to produce a drama and in this format.

Although Zenigata always fails to capture Lupin in "Lupin The Third", the drama series will show him as a stubborn man with a strong sense of justice and an excellent police detective who is warmhearted. Suzuki commented that he does feel the pressure about playing such a famous character and would always check with the director if he is doing OK. Besides Suzuki, Maeda Atsuko will playing a young police detective named Sakuraba Natsuki and Miura Takahiro will be playing her colleague Kunkida Shintaro who work together with Zenigata to solve cases.
