Oguri Shun & Nishijima Hidetoshi to star in FujiTV Spring 2017 drama "CRISIS Kouan Kido Sousatai Tokusouhan"

Oguri Shun and Nishijima Hidetoshi will be working together in the upcoming FujiTV Spring 2017 drama "CRISIS Kouan Kido Sousatai Tokusouhan" which will be shown from April in the Tuesdays 9pm timeslot. This will be their first collaboration in a private network drama which was conceptualised 5 years ago by writer Kaneshiro Kazuki who worked together with Oguri in the drama "BORDER".

The drama features Oguri in the leading role of Inami Akira who belongs to the secret team within the police force named Kouan Kido Sousatai Tokusouhan (special investigation unit of the public security department's riot squad). The team is tasked to handle the "dirty jobs" of the country and government and consists of police officers who have unspeakable pasts and secrets which they have to struggle with while handling the critical issues facing the country on a daily basis such as terrorism, new religious groups, military spies and drug peddling organisations. Nishijima plays his colleague Tamaru Saburo who also belongs to the same team. Inami is always resorting to unthinkable measures to overcome the criminals while Tamaru is the exact opposite and the epitome of calmness. In order to prepare for the action scenes in the drama, the two actors started to learn silat since a year ago.

Oguri revealed that a long time ago, he and Nishijima were talking about acting together in an interesting production with action scenes so this drama is like a dream come true for them. As the theme is something hardly seen in primetime dramas, Oguri was already quite keen to participate in this production even though it looked like there would be a lot of difficulties making this idea materialise. With regard to the action scenes, Oguri said that he will try his best to rise up to the challenge while Nishijma complimented his co-star for being a natural leader in pulling everyone else along. Despite the toughness of the filming, Nishijima also commented that this will in turn make the drama even more enjoyable to watch so they are all very proud to be able to participate in this drama.
