Star World Premiere HD introduces a revolutionary concept in English entertainment genre

MUMBAI: Star World Premiere HD is known for providing its viewers with distinguished, award-winning and critically acclaimed content.

A miniseries is not like any other television show; a unique category of television production that deserves special attention, a miniseries is a television program that displays a narrative in a pre-determined fashion lasting only a season long.

Owing to its clutter breaking nature, the prestigious award ceremony, the Emmys, introduced a special category to reward the best miniseries of the year for their outstanding contribution to television. The miniseries, although, shorter than regular television series, made tremendous noise for introducing audiences to complex characters and intricate plotlines.

In a bid to introduce Indian viewers to such a cutting-edge and phenomenal concept, Star World Premiere HD will telecast one award-winning and critically acclaimed miniseries each month as part of its property ‘Miniseries’.

Commencing on August 6, the dynamic ‘Star World Premiere Miniseries of the Month’ will air on the first Saturday andSunday of every month from 7 PM onwards kick-starting with the most popular award-winning miniseries ‘Angels in America’ starring celebrated Hollywood actors Meryl Streep and Al Pacino.

The show swept away 11 prestigious including the Golden Globe and Emmys among others in one single year.

With many other distinguished and well-known miniseries following suit, Star World Premiere HD is all set to carve its niche in the Indian English entertainment space by introducing to Indian viewers a small yet noteworthy concept of a television series that is capable of causing ripples across the industry.
