Times Network senior vice president and head of English Entertainment cluster Vivek Srivastava said, ?I am happy that our endeavor to bring in the latest and best in English TV series is being successful for the viewing delight of our audiences. Romedy Now will be premiering this hit and award winning CBS show on 5 August, 2015. It is an ongoing series in the US. This will be an India TV premiere. Jane the Virgin is a 1 hour comedy-drama format.?

Jane the Virgin debuted in the US on 13 October, 2014. The series is created by Jennie Snyder Urman and is a loose adaptation of the Venezuelan telenovela series created by Perla Farias, originally known as Juana La Virgen. In this TV series, Gina Rodriguez stars in the title role of Jane Villanueva, a religious young working Latina virgin woman, who becomes pregnant after being artificially inseminated by mistake by her gynecologist, an event that sends shockwaves through the lives of Jane and everyone around her. 

Set in the Alpha-World city of Miami, located on the Atlantic coast of beautiful Southeastern Florida, the series details the surprising and unforeseen events that take place in the life of Jane Villanueva, whose family tradition and a vow to save her virginity until her marriage to a detective are shattered when the doctor mistakenly inseminates her artificially during a checkup. To make matters worse, the biological donor is a married man, a former playboy and cancer survivor who is not only the new owner of the hotel where Jane works, but was also her former teenage crush.

Jane the Virgin has received critical acclaim since its premiere. Rodriguez won the award for the Best Actress in a Television series ? Musical or Comedy, at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards honoring the best in American film and television industry produced during 2014 on 11 January, 2015, while the show was nominated for Best Television Series ? Musical or Comedy and was also nominated for the Critics? Choice Award. The series has won the People?s Choice Award for the Favorite new TV comedy.
