Kato Ai makes her return to acting in FujiTV Spring 2017 drama "Kizoku Tantei"

Kato Ai will be making her return to acting in the 5th and 6th episodes of FujiTV Spring 2017 drama "Kizoku Tantei" which will be shown on 15th and 22nd May. This marks her first appearance in a drama in 3 years since she appeared in TBS drama "Dr. DMAT" in 2014 and gave birth to her first child in September 2015.

Kato will be playing Toyosato Satsuki, the granddaughter of Sakuragawa Takaaki (Ryu Raita) who is known as the "last fixer of Japan". In order to know the background of Kizoku Tantei (Aiba Masaki), Aika (Takei) pays a visit to Sakuragawa's residence where she is welcomed by Satsuki who is there to take part in a ceremony to choose a husband for Sakuragawa's granddaughter Yayoi (Kita Kana). During the ceremony, the last participant suddenly collapses and dies which leads to the beginning of a serial murder case.

Kato commented that when she first read the script, she had the impression that her character is a well-mannered and elegant lady but the producer said that Satsuki has a tomboy, curious and mischievous side too so she hopes to be able to show this through her acting. As for working with Aiba again since their last collaboration in the 2012 NTV drama "Mikeneko Holmes no Suiri", Kato said that Aiba is still the same relaxed and gentle guy she has known and that he is very suitable to play the character of Kizoku Tantei.
