Netflix Announces 2 More Original Series From India: Selection Day, Again
Highlights
  • Netflix has announced two new original series from India
  • First is called Selection Day. It is based on Aravind Adiga's White Tiger
  • Second, called Again, is a detective series with a female lead

Two more original series from India are coming to Netflix, the on-demand streaming service company said on Thursday. The titles are Selection Day, a movie based on Aravind Adiga's bestseller The White Tiger novel; and Again, a female-led detective series set in New Delhi.

Netflix said it has partnered with Seven Stories, a UK-based production company owned by directors Sharon Maguire and Anand Tucker. Aravind Adiga's novel The White Tiger, which was first published in 2008, and won the 40th Booker Prize, paints a dark-humour spin on India's class struggle.

Again, is a detective series where the female homicide detective "must put her career and life on the line" to solve a case that is close to her past. It will be written by Marisha Mukerjee of Quantico and Justified fame.

Netflix didn't share how soon people could expect either of the series to be available for streaming. But it's likely going to take a year. The company announced Sacred Games, based on Vikram Chandra's bestselling book by the same name, last year.

"We are excited to be expanding our slate of originals in India. These projects have specifically local subjects, but will be great for our global audience, and are supported by world class talent." said Erik Barmack, vice president of international original series at Netflix in a press statement.

Netflix faces a stiff competition from Amazon Prime Video in India. Amazon Prime Video has been steadily expanding its local offerings as well broadening its international catalog. Prime Video also debut Inside Edge on Prime Video this year. It is the first of 18 Indian original series the company has planned.
