Japan’s most popular show Doctor-X is now streaming on ZEE5


MUMBAI: ZEE5, India’s largest digital entertainment platform, has released Doctor-X, its first Japanese show dubbed in Hindi. The medical drama follows the story of Daimon Michiko, a charismatic and unorthodox freelance surgeon who works at different university hospitals, where her questionable practices bring her into conflict with the administrators.

Starring Japanese actress and former model Ryoko Yonekura as Daimon Michiko (also known as Doctor-X), the eight-episode first season that is streaming on ZEE5 has been produced by Seiko Uchiyama and directed by Miho Nakazono. Veteran actors Ito Shiro and Ittoku Kishibe are also part of the cast. The show first aired from October 18 to December 13, 2012, on TV Asahi in Japan, and was one of the top ranked dramas on private television in its time slot.  Ryoko Yonekura was awarded best actress at the 21st Hashida Awards for her performance as Doctor-X.

Viewers in India will love the fearless Doctor-X, who is willing to take on the most difficult surgeries turned down by other surgeons because she does not believe in failure. Her success in treating high-risk patients is a result of her always putting patients first, prioritising their health above performing medical firsts or innovative techniques. This practice often brings her in conflict with other doctors.

“We are thrilled to bring Japan’s most popular show Doctor-X in Hindi to our viewers in India, said Archana Anand, EVP & Head of Digital- ZEE5 India Business. “We are proud to be the only digital platform in India that is transcending the language barrier at such a scale to entertain viewers. Other than Japan, we are also curating top rated international TV shows from USA, United Kingdom, Korea, Turkey, China, Ukraine and Spain and dubbing them in Hindi to bring the best of international content to our viewers”.

Viewers can watch Doctor-X by subscribing to ZEE5 at a special launch offer of Rs 99. As India’s largest, most comprehensive digital entertainment platform for language content, ZEE5 offers its viewers the best of Originals, Indian and international movies and TV shows, music, Live TV, and health and lifestyle content in 12 languages.
