Actress Inoue Mao will be starring in a new drama from NTV titled Tokkan Tokubetsu Kokuzei Choushuukan. Based on a novel of the same name, the drama will air Wednesdays from 10pm starting in July. Written by Takadono Madoka, the original work ran in the monthly publication Mystery Magazine. This will be the first drama for Inoue since starring in the NHK asadora Ohisama a year and three months ago.
In Tokkan, Inoue will be playing a tax collector named Suzumiya Miki. Her role will be a complete turn from her good-natured heroine role in Ohisama. Instead, Inoue will be chasing after people who have been deliberately evading their taxes. Working with her on the drama include director Mizuda Nobuo and screenwriter Izumi Yoshihiro. Mizuda recently directed the movie Tsuna Hiichatta!, which stars Inoue, while Izumi worked with her on the drama Anmitsu Hime. Further details of her co-stars and theme song have not been released.

The storyline doesn't seem very interesting, so hopefully the co-stars will compensate!
