ZEEL unveils six formats at Mipcom 2016

MUMBAI: Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd (ZEEL) has unveiled its slate of six new and current formats for licensing and development at Mipcom 2016.

Zee’s unscripted formats include dance reality show ‘Dance India Dance’ and a new game show titled ‘Moksha’. Launching its sixth season later this year, there have been numerous spinoffs of the ‘Dance India Dance’ format, a Singapore edition, as well as a local production in Thailand. ‘Moksha’ is a game show requiring strategy, luck and skill.

The scripted formats include a series of 12 wickedly twisted short stories ‘Phantasmagoria’, and ‘Eclipse Harvest’, a high-octane crime series about the NYPD Organised Crime Control Bureau. It also includes two additional all-time favourite scripted formats in the comedy genre – ‘Hum Paanch’ (Five Is A Crowd) and ‘Kareena Kareena’.

‘Phantasmagoria’ centres around an inconspicuous pawn shop in the corner of a decrepit bylane. Each tale brings about a series of illusions, apparitions and deception based on the elements that are characteristic of each zodiac sign.

In ‘Eclipse Harvest’, the son of a decorated officer in the Narcotics Division and the son of a drug lord each set out to eclipse their respective fathers of their glory. The mothers of the young men narrate the stories of how their lives are taken away by circumstances and how they are paradoxically connected.

ZEEL global syndication and production, international ad sales, chief business officer Sunita Uchil says, “Zee has a rich history of developing and producing programmes with universal themes that are adaptable to all regions of the world. We are looking forward to hosting buyers and showcasing our new formats, as well as the popular dance-based reality show ‘Dance India Dance’, at our Zee Bollyworld Preview Theatre. In other words, Zee Bollyworld promises a truly edge of the seat experience at Mipcom 2016”.

For the first time, the screening sessions will be held in the Zee Bollyworld Preview Theatre located at ZEE’s booth # P1-K51.
