Screenwriter Shinji Nojima is working on an upcoming TBS drama series titled "Love Shuffle." The romantic comedy will star several popular actors, including Hiroshi Tamaki, Karina, Shota Matsuda, and Shihori Kanjiya.
Tamaki plays a manager at an IT company who breaks off his engagement to the president's daughter (Kanjiya). Later at his apartment, a power failure leaves him trapped in an elevator with three other residents (Karina, Matsuda, and Shosuke Tanihara). While waiting, their conversation hits upon the question of whether there is truly only one fated partner for everyone. As a result, they decide to run an experiment by "shuffling" their relationships with one another.
"Love Shuffle" premieres on January 16 and will air every Friday at 10:00pm.
