Priyanka Chopra and Madhuri Dixit Nene are finally collaborating. The two Indian actresses will executive produce a comedy series based on the latter’s life.
The series is picked by ABC network which also launched Priyanka’s acting career in the West with their show Quantico, reported Variety.
Priyanka Chopra took to Instagram to announce the project.
One of the favorite parts of my job, is to be able to tell stories across genres, languages and to a varied audience. Today I’m happy to share with you another step I’ve taken on that creative journey, in my role as a producer. This particular story is one of a few Hollywood projects that I am currently developing. The incredible Madhuri Dixit's real life has been the inspiration behind Sri Rao’s amazing story, and I can't wait to work with the both of them to see how this will pan out. Again, it’s unchartered territory for me, producing a show for American television but I’m blessed to have a great set of partners in Mark Gordon Company's Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper, along with ABC Studios to develop and produce this very fun idea. After having an incredible experience with them on Quantico, this seemed like a perfect extension of our partnership. I’ve only just begun and there is little I can share at this point about any of the projects but I’m looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and getting to work. Stay tuned. @abcnetwork #NickPepper #MarkGordon @madhuridixitnene @newyorksri @purplepebblepictures
The currently untitled single-camera series would follow the Bollywood star who settles down in the suburbs of America with her bi-cultural family and tries to bring her colourful lifestyle to an otherwise dull town. The series is based on the real life of Madhuri Sri Rao, a Bollywood writer and a writer for shows like General Hospital: Night Shift will pen the pilot and executive produce, as will Madhuri’s husband, Sriram Nene.
Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper will executive produce through the Mark Gordon Company (MGC). ABC Studios will co— produce with MGC.
Priyanka, 35, will soon start working on the third season of Quantico.
