The Shusui-kai TV drama, starring Naoko Kikuchi, is set in Tokyo in the late 20th century and follows the lives of a group of young women who are all destined to be mothers by the time they turn 16.
“Koi art” is a term for the art of birth control, and Kikuchi plays a mother of three who is forced to choose between her two sons, the eldest, and her younger son.
Her son, who is named Kai, is a gifted artist, while her daughter, Naoko, is the secretary of a fashion shop.
The series is set to be available on Netflix for the first time in 2018, with a premiere date set for October 17, 2018.
“It was an honor to work with the wonderful creators of the Shusu-kai franchise and I’m so happy that they will be able to bring the series to the big screen for the world to see,” Kikuchi said in a statement.
“I am thrilled that we will be bringing this magical tale to the Netflix platform.
I look forward to sharing the story with my viewers and the world as I have so many dreams and hopes.”
Kikuchi is the first Japanese actress to win an Emmy Award for her role in “The Princess Bride.”
Kikuchis sister, actress Mie Ishii, has also been nominated for an Emmy.
“The Shusuyu-ka no Kishi,” also starring Kikuchi as a female protagonist, is scheduled for a 2018 release.
