Sony readying new shows in thriller band

Sony Entertainment Television is adding muscle to its 10 to 11 pm thriller band with some new offerings that are set to roll out in the coming months.
The band is currently occupied by one-hour reruns of the Aahat supernatural thriller series Mondays through to Thursdays, with CID and Achanak 37 Saal Baad on Fridays. The band is likely to see some new shows coming up post-August.

Fireworks Productions, which is behind Aahat, is currently updating the popular series that will be launched as a one-hour show, probably a weekly.

Siddharth Kak‘s Cinema Vision India is adding to Sony‘s proposed late night thriller band with a one-hour weekly fiction series. The show is a thriller but not run of the mill stuff, says Kak. "It will be a show that uncovers the mysteries of mystic India," he says. Kak is the producer of the series that goes on the floors in the next couple of weeks, while Shriram Raghavan will write and direct the serial. The cast are all fresh faces to television, says Kak.

Manish Goswami‘s Siddhant Cinevision, meanwhile, is producing Force One, the plot which revolves around a crack team of investigators who belong to a fictionalised organisation loosely modeled on Indian government‘s espionage outfit - Research and Analysis Wing (RAW).

Whatever may be the programming that is being put together by Sony for the 10 to 11 pm band, the channel has a veritable mountain to climb because it is pitted directly against Hindi entertainment television‘s top two shows - Kahaani Ghar Ghar Ki and Kyunki Saas Bhi Kabhi Bahu Thi, both on Star Plus.
