On March 5th, it was revealed that actress Sasaki Nozomi will be challenging herself to her first announcer role in Takei Emi’s upcoming drama, ‘Otenki Oneesan‘ (TV Asahi), starting in April.
Sasaki expressed, “Female TV announcers have a gorgeous image, but in reality, I have no idea what their lifestyle is like or what they talk about. So it’s fun to think about it right now.”
The drama revolves around a genius weather forecaster named “Abe Haruko” (Takei) who acquired her qualification at the age of 11. Haruko is the weather forecaster for a morning news program and is nicknamed as ‘bomb cyclone woman’ because of her unfriendly personality that provokes negative feelings from the program’s staff and other casters. On the other hand, she helps the police to solve difficult cases from another point of view by using her vast knowledge of weather.
Sasaki will play “Hashimoto Akane”, a popular announcer who serves as the main caster for the morning news program. While she is confident with her beauty and intelligence, her position and popularity start to decline because of Haruko. She becomes irritated with how Haruko disturbs the harmony of the staff’s teamwork.
‘Otenki Oneesan’ will begin airing every Wednesdays at 11:15 pm starting in April.
