A Twitter TV Show!

We'll get back to the ice skating shortly, but I'd like to point out that Ueno Juri, who is an excellent Japanese actress, and Eita, a good Japanese actor, will be starring in a primetime Japanese drama about Twitter this spring.

Sunao ni Narenakute [roughly: "I can't be honest or frank (with you)"] is written by Kitagawa Eriko, one of my favorite Japanese screenwriters, who's responsible for such awesome shows like Long Vacation and Sora Kara Furu Ichioku no Hoshi.

It revolves around five men and women who meet through Twitter and become friends through the service. The full story can be read at Tokyograph. I am unbelievably stoked that I'll be in Japan when this is airing!
