Vuclip to launch cricket comedy show 'What The Duck' on OTT

MUMBAI: Premium video on demand service for emerging markets, Vuclip announced the unveiling of Viu Originals on its OTT platform Viu with the cricket comedy chat show series ‘What The Duck’. Hosted by Vikram Sathaye, the show will be produced and co-created by Fluence. Vuclip says that CA Media Digital's celebrity network will feature cricketing greats such as Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag, Zaheer Khan, Harbhajan Singh, Gautam Gambhir, Murali Karthik, Irfan Pathan among others.

The quirky chat show hosted by Vikram Sathaye, stand-up comedian, cricket humourist and author of the best seller How Sachin Destroyed My Life will be the first offering from Viu Originals. Each episode will have a total run time of 13 minutes.

At the intersection of cricket and comedy, ‘What The Duck’, is a freewheeling chat show that will reveal the funnier side of India’s cricketing legends. A dream come true for cricket fans, the show marries two of India’s greatest passions - cricket and entertainment. Laced with the host’s signature humour, each installment of the ten-episode series will feature a cricket celebrity along with some fascinating anecdotes and insightful stories. New episodes will be uploaded each week on Viu.

The series kicks off today on Viu with the interview of the Nawab of Najafgarh, Virender Sehwag opening the series innings in the same swashbuckling manner that he did on the cricket field. It will be available exclusively only on Viu.
