dittoTV to launch new youth centric web series 'Strugglers'

MUMBAI: Zee Digital Convergence Limited’s OTT platform dittoTV has a new feather added to its hat. Zee Digital-Original Content will release a web series titled Strugglers which will go on air from 22 March 2016. The youth centric series revolves around four young boys contemplating a common dream to make a mark in bollywood.

With only lucky few getting an opportunity to get into the glamorous entertainment industry, the group decides on taking the ‘not so taken’ adventurous road by turning into making a porn movie.

Catering to the younger mindsets, the 10 episodic series has been divided into two parts. With a long weekend right round the corner, the first four episodes will go on air on 22nd while the rest 6 episodes will entertain the viewers on 23rd.

The story sheds light on four oddball characters played by Meherzaan Mazda, Errol Marks, Vaibhav Raj Gupta and Ajay Jadhav. They share a common ambition of entering the film industry to which they fail. The group of boys decide on making a porn film in order to gain recognition which kick-starts a great mis-adventure taking them on a roller-coaster ride of sleepless nights, hilarious happenings, devastating heartbreaks and self-liberation.

Speaking about the new series, DittoTV business head Archana Anand says, “The plot of the series is extremely funny and positive. This is a highly entertaining and youth centric offering and we are hoping to get the audience hooked to dittoTV via a continuous stream of such interesting and engaging series. We have placed it back-to-back so that the viewers can binge-watch the entire series on the coming long weekend”.

Produced by RPG group, the series might also move to the other channels under ZDCL’s umbrella. The web series will launch simultaneously with its opening episode on Ditto TV and YouTube.

The platform is focused on markets like the US, UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Middle East, Asia Pacific and some parts of Africa and had recently launched advertiser based video on demand model Ozee.

dittoTV also plans to carry non-Indian content shortly in the markets where it has been launched.

With a presence in over 175 countries and a strong content base of over 1000 movies, 4000+ shows and 450+ TV shows, dittoTV has already obtained the largest base for OTT content consumed across the country.
