Supporting cast line-up of new WOWOW drama "60 Gohan Taisakushitsu" announced

The supporting cast line-up of new WOWOW drama "60 Gohan Taisakushitsu" starring Tachi Hiroshi, Furukawa Yuuki and Hoshino Mari had been announced. The drama is based on the same-titled original mystery novel by Ishikawa Tomotake which was published on15 March and will be directed by Kumakiri Kazuyoshi.

Tachi plays Arima Eiji, a police detective nearing retirement, who belongs to the Gohan Taisakushitsu and had the experience of arresting the wrong person for a crime he did not commit. As such, when he is tasked to investigate the likelihood of wrong judgments given out to criminals on death row along with young lawyer Sera Shoichi (Furukawa) and prosecutor Haruna Misuzu (Hoshino), Arima takes this on with the intention of repenting for his past mistake. On the other hand, although Sera is suspicious of Arima's actions, he is pushed along by the latter's passion to assist in the re-investigations while Haruna just wants to get back to the prosecutors' office as soon as possible so she has no choice but to obey the orders of her superior to cooperate with Arima and Sera.

Haruna's superior Nishijima Shintaro will be played by Murakami Jun while Akahori Masaaki plays Yano Takatora, the mastermind of a fraud group. Takatora's wife Yano Kotono will be played by Hamakawa Fumie and Sakai Wakana will play Nakakura Ayako, a hostess who works at the club which Arima frequents. Takehara Pistol will play Nakakura Toru who is framed for a crime he did not commit while Kan Suon will play Furuuchi Hirofumi who is a prisoner on death roll.

The drama which consists of 5 episodes, will begin its run from 6 May in the Sundays 10pm timeslot.
