Two live dramas were directed by Koichi Okamoto.
A first drama, titled “Meitantei Conan: Kudo Shinichi he no Chosenjo” aired on October 2, 2006.
The drama was a prequel of the current storyline that illustrated how Jimmy turned into Conan. The special starred Shun Oguri (小栗旬)as Jimmy Kudo, Tomoka Kurokawa (黒澤友香)as Rachel Moore, and Takanori Jinnai as Richard Moore.
A second drama, titled “Kudo Shinichi no Fukkatsu! Kuro no Soshiki to no Taiketsu” was aired on December 17, 2007. New to the cast were Yu Kashii(香椎由宇) as Shiho Miyano, with Kyoka Shibata portraying her as Ai, Kuranosuke Sasaku as Gin, Taro Okada as Vodka, and Nao Fujisaki as Conan. It was released on a regular and limited-edition DVD on March 28, 2008.

Although Oguri previously starred in the 2006 and 2008, the new one will feature Junpei Mizobata (溝端淳平),21, as the protagonist Shinichi Kudo. The female character Ran Mori will be played by actress Shiori Kutsuna (18).
