Romedy NOW brings award winning and celebrated edgy comedy show ‘Shameless’ to Indian television screens for the first time

MUMBAI: India’s favourite English Entertainment channel, Romedy NOW brings to Indian audiences for the first time ever on Indian television, the award winning and celebrated American comedy-drama series - ‘Shameless’ premiering this Friday, 16th March at 11pm on Romedy NOW’s ‘After Hours Binge’.

Adapted by John Wells, this fiercely engaging and fearlessly twisted series depicts the dysfunctional family of the Gallaghers who live in the South Side of Chicago. Chicagoan Frank Gallagher played by Oscar®-nominated William H. Macy is the proud single alcoholic dad of six smart, industrious, independent kids, who leaves his kids to fend for themselves. When Frank is not at the bar spending the little money he has, he's passed out on the floor. But the kids have found ways to grow up in spite of him. They may not be like any family you know, but they make no apologies for being exactly who they are.

Speaking on the launch of the new show, TIMES NETWORK, EVP & Head Entertainment Cluster, Vivek Srivastava said, “Shameless will be a break through show for the channel as the content of the show is extremely bold and edgy  which is a change from our usual programming line-up. Known to be synonymous with love and laughter, the channel has historically been India’s favourite rom-com destination showcasing the happiest television series & movies. Like  ‘Shameless’, the quality of content that we will be showcasing on the channel is an attempt to widen our audience  base. We as a channel are committed to provide all round entertainment and therefore are working towards including a mix of different emotions in all our shows. I am confident that Shameless will have an equal fan following in India as overseas.”

Through its distinctive international content, Romedy NOW is known to strike an emotional chord with audiences by offering them their daily dose of love and laughter. With the Indian television premiere of ‘Shameless’, the channel will be now foraying into edgier and quirky content apart from romance and comedy. 

Have no shame and tune in to catch the immensely entertaining comedy series – ‘Shameless’ premiering this Friday, 16th March at 11pm on Romedy NOW’s ‘After Hours Binge’.
