Takahashi Ai & Niigaki Risa to star in drama

Morning Musume leader Takahashi Ai and sub-leader Niigaki Risa are to star in a drama about Pink Lady producer Aku Yuu, the girls will play Pink Lady!

The drama will be part of the celebrations in honur of the commemoration of Nihon TV’s 55th anniversary and also of the one year anniversary of Aku Yuu’s death.

Filming for the drama is already complete and in the show the girls perform the Pink Lady hit, Pepper Keibu. I’d love if this was released as a drama-tie in single!

It will air on August 1st.
