International Art Machine, a global entertainment studio, is all set to make it’s place in India.
It’s been confirmed that Shekhar Kapur will be directing the first international series, based on the ‘Shiva’ trilogy novels by Amish Tripathi. Suparn S Varma will be directing too and also be showrunner.
Following this, Preity Zinta is to helm ‘The Kitty Party’. The actress said, according to Variety, “’The Kitty Party’ is a female driven murder mystery that moonlights between being a dramedy and thriller. Too early to comment more except that we cannot wait to get started. I’m sure we will have as much fun filming this as we had putting it together.”
The next will be Dibakar Banerjee’s political drama ‘Gods. “‘Gods’ is an Indian story in a way that it can only happen in India. It centers around the Great Indian Family. The generations. The power play. The family politics. I’m finally getting my secret wish – a family soap that will upend the genre – and channeling some of the best of Indian TV from the eighties and the nineties,” said the director.
International Art Machine’s Roy Price shared, “The premise of International Art Machine is that we are entering a new peak era for Asian original cinema and television. Everything we do supports that vision. India in particular, with its many people and stories, is poised to be a leader in a new multi-polar entertainment world. I could not imagine a better project to start IAM’s life than ‘Shiva,’ and there is no better dream team to fully realize the potential of Amish’s novels than Shekhar Kapur and Suparn S. Varma.”
