Nishikido Ryo & Matsuoka Mayu to play a married couple in NTV Summer 2017 drama "Uchi no otto wa shigoto ga dekinai"

Nishikido Ryo and Matsuoka Mayu will be playing a married couple in the upcoming NTV Summer 2017 drama "Uchi no otto wa shigoto wa dekinai" (My husband can't do his work) which will be show in the Saturdays 10pm timeslot. The original script will be written by Watanabe Chiho whose most recent work was NHK morning drama "Beppin-san".

Nishikido plays the lead character Kobayashi Tsukasa who appears to be the perfect husband with good looks, stellar qualifications and a high income to his young wife Sayaka (Matsuoka). However, little does she know that Tsukasa is regarded as a burden at his workplace because of his poor work abilities. Tsukasa tries his best to hide this fact from Sayaka who idolises him but things reach a stage where he wants to quit because he keeps making mistakes at work and is even bullied by his juniors at the company. Before he can do that, Sayaka discovers that she is pregnant which makes it impossible for Tsukasa to quit as he is the sole breadwinner. At the same time, Sayaka finds out about her husband's situation at work and she tries to help him overcome the challenge with her support.
