MUMBAI: The television arm of music company Saregama is moving into Telugu after having launched popular Tamil serials earlier. Saregama TV has launched its serial Namo Venkatesha in a unique first along with the music release.

The prime time serial will be aired on Gemini TV every Sunday morning at 9:30 am.

According to Saregama officials,Namo Venkatesha is a Telugu musical socio-mythological. Namo Venkatesha has been produced on a grand scale.

The announcement of the serial was accompanied by the formal launch of the serial's music album by Saregama India MD Abhik Mitra.
