Sasaki Fusai no Jingi Naki Tatakai

Screen Shot from Kimi wa Petto

SMAP's Goro Inagaki (Hanazakari no Kimitachi e, Jyooubachi) and actress Koyuki will co-star in an original drama series on TBS this winter.

"Sasaki Fusai no Jingi Naki Tatakai" is described as a love comedy. Inagaki and Koyuki play the Sasakis, two lawyers with opposite personalities. They've been married for three years, but their heated quarrels lead them to the courtroom to settle a possible divorce, with the two representing themselves.

Their domestic battles are one of the highlights of the show, says producer Masanao Takahashi. He mentioned that the couple nearly gets into fistfights. Viewers will even get a chance to see Inagaki in a wrestling uniform (his character was part of his university's wrestling club).

TBS has lined up a supporting cast that includes Keisuke Koide (Nodame Cantabile ), Wakana Sakai (First Kiss ), Masahiko Nishimura (Akimahende), and Makoto Fujita as staff members of the legal office. Koji Yamamoto has been cast as one of Inagaki's university classmates, while Arata Furuta plays one of Koyuki's close friends, a gay masseur.

Filming begins at the end of November. The show will air on Sundays at 9:00pm, starting in January. from Tokyograph

After just seeing Koyuki (Kimi wa Petto, Ikebukuro West Gate Park) in Antique a few weeks ago, I'm pretty happy to see this announcement today.
