Synergy is the name of the game in the new drama series “Hungry” (Fuji TV, Tues., 10:15 p.m.), which incorporates two themes: rock music and French cuisine.

In episode one, we’re introduced to Eisuke (Osamu Mukai), a young man whose dream is to be a professional rock musician; but after his mother dies he decides to run her restaurant. However, his father, Taro (Ren Osugi), makes a serious accounting error that results in the restaurant being taken over by a ruthless businessman (Goro Inagaki). Mostly out of anger, Eisuke decides to open his own restaurant.
