Fire hits Fuji TV’s ‘Oh-oku’ set

Cast, crew of drama uninjured

A fire interrupted the shooting of “Oh-oku,” the Fuji TV period drama about the women in the inner court of the Shogun’s palace.

A black plastic reflector, overheated by a light, started burning on the set at the Toei Studio in Kyoto at about 12:20 p.m. on Saturday. The crew extinguished the fire and no one in the cast and crew of 40 was injured.

Skedded for a Dec. 23 release by Toei, the pic stars Yukie Nakama and Haruka Igawa in a drama of love and intrigue in the court of the Tokugawa Shogun. The pic was preceded by three hit series on the Fuji TV web and is expected to be one of the big BO earners of the holiday season.
