NEWS member Shigeaki Kato has joined the cast of NTV's drama series "Hokaben," set to premiere on April 16. Adapted from a manga by Hiroyuki Nakajima, the show stars Aya Ueto as a novice lawyer.

Kato will play Riichiro Katase, an elite attorney who comes from a family of lawyers. Full of pride, ambition, and intelligence, he happens to work at the same law office as the idealistic rookie Akari (Ueto), whom he has been attracted to for a while.

Ueto and Kato previously appeared together in the sixth season of "3 Nen B Gumi Kinpachi Sensei," which ran from 2001 to 2002.

The cast of "Hokaben" also includes Kazuki Kitamura (as Akari's boss), Ryo, Naho Toda, and Megumi Nakayama.

I watched the first episode on Veoh. If that's any help. I had to install Veoh TV to watch it though. I was disappointed in the lack of Shige but he probably appears more later in the series.
