Sawamura Ikki & Hirosue Ryoko star in TV Tokyo drama SP "Dame Otouchan, Hero ni naru! Gakeppuchi! Ninjou Koukokuman Funtouki"

Sawamura Ikki and Hirosue Ryoko will be playing a divorced couple in the upcoming TV Tokyo drama SP "Dame Otouchan, Hero ni naru! Gakeppuchi Ninjou Koukokuman Funtouki" which will be shown at 9pm on 29 December. This will be the first time in 15 years that they are acting together since FujiTV's Summer 2001 drama "Dekichatta Kekkon".

The drama is based on Ogiwara Hiroshi's novel "Nakayoshi Kojima-gumi" and its script written by Okada Yoshikazu. It features Sawamura as the lead character Sugiyama Toshifumi who works in a small advertising agency on the verge of bankruptcy. Just then, the president of his company Ishii (Kosakai Kazuki) comes to him with an assignment to improve the image of a gang named Kojima-gumi. To make things worse, Kojima-gumi sends one of its members Kawada Kaoru (Sugimoto Tetta) to be stationed at the company and keep an eye on them. At the same time, Sugiyama is having problems with his ex-wife Ishihara Sachiko (Hirosue) and daughter Sanae (Suzuki Rio). In order to regain his pride as a father and keep his company from going under, Sugiyama rises to the challenge. Co-stars also include Usuda Asami who plays Inokuma Erika, an employee in the advertising agency known for her stubborness and sarcasm, Emoto Tokio who plays Murasaki also working in the agency but calls himself a musician and has no motivation to work, Ibu Masato who plays the leader of Kojima-gumi and Uesugi Shuhei who plays Nishiwaki Katsuya, a member of Kojima-gumi.
