Hansal Mehta has signed a multi-year series partnership with Netflix. Under the agreement, Mehta will create multiple series for the streaming platform in the coming years.
Talking about the partnership, Mehta said, “As a filmmaker, the idea of creating diverse and dynamic stories constantly keeps me on my toes. What excites me about this partnership with Netflix, which is home to some of the finest talent, is the potential for my work to reach viewers across the world. As was the case with Scoop, Netflix is engaged in the creative process right from scripting, all the way to marketing and distribution which is critical for the success of any creative collaboration. This long-term partnership with them is only going to empower me to dive into a variety of undiscovered stories”.
Mehta’s recent series on Netflix called Scoop was well-received by audiences. The series was adapted from Jigna Vora’s book ‘Behind Bars in Byculla: My Days in Prison’, and has been called a genre-defining series.
Monika Shergill, Vice President - Content at Netflix India, said, "Hansal is a master of his craft and has an eye for spotting stories that have a broad appeal and are relevant to a wide audience. Being a nuanced storyteller, he is able to tell these stories like no other. Scoop marks yet another success for our series line-up this year, and with this partnership we look forward to never before seen stories that audiences will love.”
