Like Gokusen, but even stranger?

AnimeNewsNetwork informs me that a live-action(!) television adaptation of Deka Wanko (the current manga from Gokusen creator Kozueko Morimoto) is in the works.

Now, I haven't read Deka Wanko (like most series that I actually want to read, it's not licensed here in the U.S.), but from what I hear it's about a rookie detective with a dog-like sense of smell who solves cases in frilly Gothic-Lolita outfits using the power of her nose. I look forward to seeing a real, live actor try to tackle this role, as it sounds like a significant departure from the police procedurals we usually see on American TV.
