There aren’t many celebrities who would make good journalists, but something tells me Norika Fujiwara is one. She’s well-traveled, socially active and not constrained by the mechanisms of public-relations strategies.

In the new WOWOW mini-series “Onna to Otoko no Nettai” (which is rendered in English roughly as “The Passionate Zone between Women and Men”), Fujiwara, 41, plays journalist Sonoko Miyabe. She gets a tip that the revenge-obsessed Satoshi Shindo (Atsuro Watabe) plans to kill the person he thinks is responsible for a terrorist attack that left his wife and daughter dead. What follows is a game of cat and mouse that fires up libidos and exposes the seedy underbelly of politics, business and the media.

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
