TVF goes "Tripling" with Tata Tiago


MUMBAI: Road tripping with your favourite people is bliss. We have all been there. Famous for its brainchild Pitchers and Permanent Roommates, YouTube’s series heavyweights The Viral Fever (TVF) has added a new feather to its hat.

For those who have done it in the past, TVF’s new web-series Tripling will give them a flashback and those who haven’t will immediately start planning.

Written by Akarsh Khurana and Sumeet Vyas, the five episodic show spanning over 20-25 minutes revolves around three distant siblings who come closer on a road trip trying to deal with their individual crisis.

Chandan (Sumeet Vyas), a homeless and jobless man whose marriage seems to be falling apart with Chanchal (Maanvi Gagroo) married into royalty regretting the isolation and responsibility that comes with the title and Chitvan (Amol Parashar) a laid back DJ decide to hit the roads. The show is slated to launch on 28 August. It also stars Kunal Roy Kapoor, Kumud Mishra and Shernaz Patel.

“I started working on the concept six months back and after three or four drafts we finalised the script. I was very keen on writing a road-trip story and wanted it to be different,” says Vyas.

Targeted at the 14-45 age group who can relate to the content, TVF is making this web series in association with Tiago from Tata Motors. Directed by Rajesh Krishnan, the entire show has been shot by G Srinivas Reddy on a Cannon C300 using a two camera set-up.

The series was shot at a stretch with a crew of 30-40 in various places- Mumbai, Rajasthan, Jodhpur, Manali, etc. The catchy music has been composed by Amar Mangrulkar.

According to sources close to the development, Tata Motors has shelled out an eye-popping amount of Rs 2.5-3 crore for backing the production.

“Just like our past shows, TVF will not push this series exceedingly. We will target audiences from the tier 2 and tier 3 cities,” adds producer of the show Sameer Saxena. He is also working on the second season of Pitchers that will be launched early in 2017.

Except teasers and a few hoardings in the top five metro cities, the trailer of the show has been successfully launched with 3,000 likes on the channel within 24 hours. Going by one of the dialogues from the show, Crisis ke time pe family hi kaam aati hai, TVF definitely has one more winner on its hands.
