'Jeet' to replace 'Khullja....' from 10 Oct.

MUMBAI: Jeet, a new one hour drama based on Fox's Boston Public, will fill the 8.30 pm slot vacated by the Aman Verma hosted game show Khullja Sim Sim currently on Fridays on Star Plus from 10 October.

Khullja Sim Sim ends its over two year run in the first week of October, to be followed by a series of the Best of Khullja Sim Sim on weekends.

The Indianised version of the behind-the-scenes look at the personal and professional lives of teachers working at a midsize high school, Jeet has been entrusted to the relatively young production house Rose Movies. The Goldie Behl-Srishti Arya promoted production house ventured into TV software creation with the daringly different late night drama Lipstick on Zee last year. While Lipstick has run successfully for over a year, having gained an extension of 100 episodes recently, Rose Movies was recently entrusted with the creation of fresh episodes of children's serial Shaka Laka Boom Boom by Star Plus, a series nurtured thus far by production major UTV. While Shaka Laka... was handed over to Rose on a piecemeal basis, Jeet is the first full fledged prime time creation by the production house for Star.

Jeet is the first experimental theme Star has toyed with since the demise of Josh... Aktion Unlimited, the action packed drama series that was supposed to have revolutionised weekly television shows, but ended up as a 13 episode damp squib.

Jeet will have Arun Govil, Ankur Nair (last seen in another ill fated Star experiment, Kashmeer), Mrinal Kulkarni, Pawan Malhotra and newcomer Aparna Tilak in the lead roles.
