Hayami Mocomichi will be starring in an NTV drama series this fall, it was learned on Sunday. While the show is currently untitled, it is said to feature the actor in a "father" role.
Mocomichi plays the role of Kotaro Yamashita, an aspiring young novelist working part-time at a publishing company. He leads the life of a poor bachelor, but he somehow gets stuck living with the 6-year-old An, an impertinent but gifted child actress, forcing him to take on the role of a father figure. Rosa Kato has been cast as An's manager.
NTV has scheduled the drama for Tuesday nights at 10:00pm. The first episode airs in October.
