MTV Japan will broadcast a new reality drama on January 8th called “SHIBUHARA GIRLS“. Inspired by America’s “The Hills“, the show will follow four young girls who want to break out into the fashion and entertaimen scene.

"Shibuhara Girls" was announced by MTV earlier this year. The show is said to follow the real, everyday lives of four women trying to make it big in the fashion and entertainment world. The title is a combination of Shibuya and Harajuku, two of Tokyo's major fashion districts.

Although the show will premiere first on MTV Japan on January 8 (Saturday nights at 1:00am), it will also later be broadcast in 16 Asian countries. China, Korea, Malaysia, and Vietnam will begin airing the show in February.

Of the four stars, Akimoto seems to be receiving the most media attention. She is the daughter of former sumo wrestler Chiyonofuji Mitsugu (55), and she made her debut as a model in June 2009. This is her first time appearing in a television series.
