Juri Ueno stars in WOWOW miniseries

Actress Juri Ueno (23) has been cast in a drama miniseries that will air on WOWOW later this year. Titled “Ueno Juri to Itsutsu no Kaban,” the show features Ueno taking on five roles in five episodes.

As the title suggests, each 30-minute episode involves a bag of some kind, such as a guitar case or a mysterious delivery package. Each story has its own staff behind it, including screenwriter Arisa Kaneko (“Densha Otoko”) and director Nobuhiro Yamashita (“Linda Linda Linda”).

Ueno will also sing the show’s ending theme, tentatively titled “Kaban no Banka.” This is her first song since she made her CD debut in 2007 with “Onara Taisou” from the “Nodame Cantabile” drama series.

WOWOW will broadcast the series on Thursdays at 11:30pm, starting on September 3.
