Busaiku to star in Salarymen drama

Busaiku will be starring in NTV’s “Heisei Busaiku Salaryman” that will air October 18th.

The drama is about men in an office in Tokyo at a confectionery stores branch office who aren’t able to work, can’t read the atmosphere, are clumsy and are considered “ugly” salarymen. They confront the difficulties of working at a company while being exposed to a restructuring crisis. It’s a realistic, sorrow filled story. In addition to the Busaiku members (Yokoo Wataru, Miyata Toshiya, Nikaido Takashi and Senga Kento) the drama also includes the actress Maiko, Minamisawa Nao, Nomaguchi Tooru and Shiga Kotaro as fellow employees.

In addition, the screenplay was worked on by Yamaura Masahiro who also worked on “35 sai no Koukousei” and “Roosevelt Game” and the comedy trio Tokyo03.

This is the first time Tokyo03 has worked on a drama’s screenplay.
