Colors Infinity celebrates 2016 with new shows

MUMBAI: This month, English GEC Colors Infinity will offer a fresh line-up comprising a new set of shows.

Starting 8 January, the channel will air shows like ‘Shades of Blue’, ‘Shark Tank’, ‘Legends of Tomorrow’, and ‘Chicago Fire’.

The channel’s co-curators Karan Johar and Alia Bhatt have hand-picked brand new shows that they believe will appeal to the Indian audience. The series of premieres will be flagged off on 8 January at 11 pm with ‘Shades of Blue’, a crime-drama series starring Jennifer Lopez as an NYPD cop. The show marks JLo’s return to fiction television after almost 20 years.

The channel will then fire its next salvo with more ‘Instant Premieres’ of shows such as ‘iZombie’, ‘Mr Robot’, ‘Mad Dogs’ and the all-new superheroes spin-off from the ‘Arrow’ and ‘The Flash’ universe—‘Legends of Tomorrow’.

Viacom18 executive VP, head of English and youth entertainment Ferzad Palia said, “After shaking the genre awake from its deep slumber, Colors Infinity is set to enter the New Year with a magnum line-up. Each show has been selected keeping in mind the viewers’ interests and demands. With this new line-up, we aim to showcase a mix of various genres like crime drama, comedy, sci-fi, path-breaking unscripted content and a lot more, creating a wholesome entertainment experience.”

In ‘Shades of Blue’, Lopez stars as New York detective Harlee Santos, a single mother who runs with a group of dirty cops. However, she is caught by the FBI, which forces her to turn informant on her cop family.

‘Chicago Fire’ is about the fire fighters, rescue squad and paramedics of Chicago Firehouse 51, who are deeply committed to their rewarding and exhilarating jobs, despite the inherent danger and stressors.

The series airs from Monday to Friday at 10 pm from 12 January.

‘Legends of Tomorrow’ is set in the year 2166. The immortal villain Vandal Savage is on the verge of his final victory – total chaos and the utter destruction of humanity. As the world crumbles, the Time Master Rip Hunter takes matters into his own hands; he travels 150 years into the past to assemble a carefully selected team of heroes and rogues to stop him. The show starts airing on 22 January at 7 pm.

The channel will also air the first season of ‘Mad Dogs’. This is an American version of the British dark comedy that portrays the spirit of friendship, but with a twist. This ‘Instant Premiere’ will air every Monday at 11 pm starting 25 January.
