Actress Yonekura Ryoko (36) has a new lead television role lined up this fall in Fuji TV‘s “HUNTER ~Sono Onnatachi, Shoukin Kasegi~.” The story will revolve around a group of ordinary women who unite as a team to become bounty hunters.

Yonekura plays Isaka Rei, a cabin attendant with a strong sense of justice. Due to various circumstances, she becomes a “hunter,” trying to earn the reward money from bounties that the police have declared on cases that they can’t solve through traditional methods.

Yonekura’s teammates include a junior cabin attendant (Kiritani Mirei) and a housewife (Horiuchi Keiko). Tanihara Shosuke and Koizumi Kotaro both play police detectives.

“HUNTER” will air on Tuesdays at 10:00pm this fall, beginning in October.
