Suvarna Plus launches two new comedy shows

BENGALURU: The Star network’s recently added Kannada GEC Suvarna Plus announced the launch of two new daily (Monday to Sunday) comedy shows - Singari Bangari and Jam‘n’Jelly that will go on air from December  2013. Singari Bangari will go on air at 9:00 pm followed by Jam`n’Jelly at 9:30 pm.


Suvarna Plus business head Anup Chandrashekharan says, “The idea behind the two comedy shows is to provide a sense of relief to the audiences from their stressful lives. Jam‘n’Jelly is a first of its kind mute comedy offering in the Kannada market. Both these shows are light hearted comedies and I am sure that our audiences would enjoy them.”  


Earlier, the channel re-ran the content broadcast by the Star Network’s first Kanada GEC Suvarna. Over a period of time the network plans to add more content exclusively for Suvarna Plus say sources at the channel.  


“Since this is a new channel, we don’t have sponsors or new advertisers on board for the shows, but are sure to get them once the shows and the channel gain popularity,” revealed the sources, who also informed that generally the ad inventory in the case of Suvarna is fully booked.


The channel says that Singari Bangari is a fun riot between mother-in-law (Singari) and daughter-in-law (Bangari).  The cat and mouse game between these two affects the family and leads them into comical situations more often than not. The never ending tussle between the two women is the crux of the show. The show is directed by Pavankumar and produced by Vasanthkumar.


 Jam‘n’Jelly is a mute comedy, a first of its kind in Kannada entertainment. The two characters Jam and Jelly are the highlights of the show. The show has a lot of firsts in it and is all set to create a new trend in the Kannada market with its unique treatment. The show is directed by Sachin Shetty and produced by Shivadhwaj.  


Besides these new shows, the channel already has shows like Campus Connect, Bindas Bakra and Namma Parivara that are becoming popular names in every part of Karnataka.
