MUMBAI: Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL) announced its slate of six new and current formats for MIPCOM for licensing and development. For the first time, screening sessions will be held in the Zee Bollyworld Preview Theatre located at ZEE’s booth # P1-K51.

Sunita Uchil, recently promoted to chief business officer, international ad sales, global syndication and production, said, “Zee has a rich history of developing and producing programs with universal themes that are adaptable to all regions of the world. We are looking forward to hosting buyers and showcasing our new formats, as well as the popular dance-based reality show 'Dance India Dance', at our Zee Bollyworld Preview Theatre. In other words, Zee Bollyworld promises a truly edge-of-the-seat experience at MIPCOM 2016”.

Zee’s unscripted formats include India’s original dance reality show, Dance India Dance, in which contestants are judged by leading Bollywood choreographers on their dance skills. Launching its sixth
season later this year, there have been numerous spinoffs of the format, a Singapore edition, as well as a local production in Thailand. Moksha is a brand-new game show requiring strategy, luck and
skill.

Zee’s scripted formats include: Phantasmagoria is a series of 12 wickedly twisted short stories. The story centers on an inconspicuous pawnshop in the corner of a decrepit by lane. Each tale brings about a series of illusions, apparitions and deception based on the elements that are uniquely characteristic of each sign of the zodiac. The Eclipse Harvest is a high-octane crime series about the NYPD Organized Crime Control Bureau. The son of a decorated officer in the Narcotics Division and the son of a drug lord each set out to eclipse their respective fathers of their glory. The mothers of the young men narrate the stories of how their lives are taken away by circumstances and how they are paradoxically connected.

Two additional scripted formats are all-time favorites in the comedy genre are Hum Paanch (Five Is A Crowd) and Kareena Kareena.

Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited is one of India’s leading television media and entertainment companies. It is amongst the largest producers and aggregators of Hindi programming in the world, with an extensive library housing over 222,000 hours of television content.
