Arre's 'A.I.SHA | My Virtual Girlfriend' wins at WebFest

MUMBAI: Arré's first web series A.I.SHA | My Virtual Girlfriend has won the best overall web series and best suspense/thriller at South Florida WebFest in Miami. The show has been selected from among a selected screening of the best 27 global web series and short films that were shortlisted.

A.I.SHA, Artificial Intelligence Simulated Humanoid Assistant (A.I.SHA) is India's first AI-based digital series. The story pivots around the widely debated and chilling premise of what happens when artificial intelligence develops feelings and consciousness. Sam, the show's protagonist, creates A.I.SHA, without realising the consequences, and thus begins a series of events that rapidly spirals out of control.

"I am happy that A.I.SHA has broken new ground in the web series space in India and globally. We’re now excited about Season 2 and hopefully will pack in enough thrills and chills for our viewers," said Arre founder B. Saikumar.

The series is directed by Sahir Raza, written by Raghu Ram and Harman Singha and produced for Arré by Monozygotic. The show was presented by Gillette Flexball. To bring technical authenticity, the series has also partnered with Palo Alto Networks, a next-generation security company, as Cyber Security Advisers and Dell as the Technology Partner.

Following the resounding success of season 1, Arré also launched a Telugu version of the show in association with Yupp TV and also plans to release a Tamil version of the show to reach out to a wider audience.

The team has also begun pre-production work for season 2, which is planned for launch early next year.
