Popular young actor Matsuda Shota (25) is confirmed to be starring in a drama series this summer. He will be in a currently unnamed series in NTV’s Saturday 9:00pm time slot, making this his first lead television role during golden time (7:00pm-10:00pm).

In this unusual story, Matsuda plays a child welfare official working at a child consultation center, while Takahashi Katsumi (50) plays a charitable yakuza boss. These two lead completely different lives, but one day, their souls are suddenly switched. As a result, Matsuda begins dispensing odd advice about the “rules of society” and other things. While his colleagues naturally see this as a problem, the children gradually come to rely on him.

Narumi Riko (18) will also have a main role as one of the youths at the center. Kobayashi Satomi (45) and Uchida Yuki (35) have also been cast. Oishi Tetsuya (“BECK,” “Death Note”) is in charge of the script, and Nakajima Satoru (“Deka Wanko”) is directing.

The series is scheduled to premiere in July.
