Kyoko Fukada, 31, will star in a remake of the 2006 TV series "The Stewardess Cop," about three JAL international flight attendants who get involved in solving murder mysteries in the various cities they visit around the world.
The original series starred Naomi Zaizen and is still available on DVD.
The upcoming drama, which begins airing on Fuji TV in July, will be Fukada's first role as a flight attendant, though she has played a detective before.
The drama is being made with the cooperation of JAL, which is providing uniforms and aircraft interiors.
Fukada said she loved playing a flight attendant and hopes audiences will enjoy the murder mysteries, according to Sports Nippon.© Japan Today
