WOWOW Drama Special 2011 ~ Saisei Kyoryu


Official Website

From 10.00 p.m., 6 March 2011


The “organisation” should probably not have been underestimated … Yoshino Kimihiro, the deputy general manager of Subaru Transport’s Sales Division is demoted despite his outstanding sales performance. This is because his aggressive tactics that yielded those results, had stirred up animosity among superiors like Mise Takashi. Yoshino is dejected, but is moved by his encounter with Horai Hideki, a sales driver and one-time baseball player, who is suffers a similar setback as his. Sales targets that are difficult to achieve, subordinates with no motivation, fierce competition with rival companies … Yoshino bounces back from adversity, gambling on their revival through the realisation of a groundbreaking logistics system.
