Odagiri to star in “Atami no Sousakan”
Actor Joe Odagiri (34) will star in a new drama series this summer on TV Asahi, titled “Atami no Sousakan.” The show reunites Odagiri with director and screenwriter Satoshi Miki, whom he worked with on the popular mystery series “Jikou Keisatsu” in 2006 and 2007.
“Atami no Sousakan” begins with the disappearance of a school bus and four high school girls. Still unsolved three years later, the case gets revived when one of the girls reappears. Odagiri plays a sharp national investigator searching for the truth behind the incident, which leads back to a seemingly peaceful town.
