Kuriyama Chiaki gets first lead role in drama series as secret spy

Actress Kuriyama Chiaki (26) is confirmed to be starring in a new drama series this fall. Although she has appeared in many television dramas during her 13-year career, this will be her first time playing the sole lead role in a series.
Titled “Himitsu Chouhouin Erika,” the drama has Kuriyama playing Takahashi Erika, a former secret spy for Japan’s Cabinet Intelligence and Research Office. One day, she met an ordinary salaryman and his son, and she ended up retiring and getting married to him while concealing her past. However, a year later, her former boss (played by Sugimoto Tetta) calls upon her to return to work, so she begins leading a double life as a housewife and a spy.
The show is described as a mystery series, with each episode revolving around a single case. Using her instant memory, excellent hearing, fighting skills, and mastery of disguise, Erika sets out to resolve a variety of incidents.
Ide Takuya will play a graduate school student who helps out as Erika’s assistant.
Seki Erika (“Jigyaku no Uta,” “Teppan”) is in charge of the screenplay, while Ueda Hisashi (“Shiroi Haru,” “Ohitorisama”) is directing.
Kuriyama has been chosen for the show’s theme song. The song is planned to be written, composed, and produced by Shiina Ringo.
NTV will broadcast “Himitsu Chouhouin Erika” on Thursdays at 11:58pm, starting on October 6.

Wow the rumours are sooo accurate!! Haha I don't know any of the works that the writer was part of so that's a good thing... can't compare it to anything I've seen.
