Ichihara Hayato (24) has been chosen to star in an action drama series on TBS this fall, titled “Runaway ~Aisuru Kimi no Tame ni~.” He will play the part of a fugitive who is on the run after escaping from prison, trying to make his way back to his daughter.

The adrenaline-pumping thriller is described as having a rapid pace and a chain of unraveling mysteries, making it reminiscent of the popular American television series “Prison Break.” Ichihara plays a man who is falsely charged with murder and thrown into a prison in Kitakyushu. With his colleagues, he escapes from the jail and must overcome a series of ordeals as he races 1,000 kilometers back to Tokyo, where his beloved daughter is in danger.

For Ichihara, this will be the first time that he has played the part of a father.

“Runaway” will premiere in October. Coincidentally, Ichihara’s movie “DOG x POLICE,” in which he plays a policeman, opens in theaters the same month.

TBS will broadcast “Runaway” on Thursday nights at 9:00pm. After the long-running drama “Wataru Seken wa Oni Bakari” ends in September, TBS will officially rename that time slot “Mokuyo Drama 9,” using it only for dramas instead of the mix of dramas and variety shows it has been airing until now.

Since Ichihara will be the first star of the new time slot, producers are hoping that “Runaway” will become a hit similar to Ichihara’s “ROOKIES,” which kicked off TBS’s Saturday 8:00pm drama time slot in 2008.
