Star World to air Priyanka Chopra’s ‘Quantico’ in India

MUMBAI: Priyanka Chopra’s debut international television series, ABC’s Quantico will air in India on Star World & Star World HD.


Quantico will be available to Indian audiences almost immediately after its US airing, which is slated for 27 September, 2015. Star World will be launching the show with great fanfare later this year.


Produced by Disney–ABC Television Group’s television production division, Quantico has created a lot of buzz since the launch of its first trailer in May this year.


A Star India official spokesperson said, “This is a first for Bollywood as well as for India where an A-List actor like Priyanka Chopra is playing a lead in an international TV series. There is a lot of chatter and excitement in the country for this show and we are thrilled that Star World will give this magnum-opus show an imposing launch platform that it rightly deserves.”


On the launch of her first international TV venture, Chopra said, “Quantico is my first international TV venture and I am truly proud of it. I’m equally excited that the Star Network will showcase Quantico as part of its primetime line-up on Star World and Star World HD in India, and I couldn't think of a better launchpad in India for my TV debut. What makes it even more special for me is that it will be real-time.”


“Audience response to our first trailer has been fantastic and I am looking forward to working with the Star TV team to create a memorable launch campaign for the show. Being part of a major TV show like this has been a whole new experience for me. I’m looking forward to a weekly date with viewers from across the world, and I hope this is just the beginning of a long lasting relationship with Star Network,” Chopra added.


Disney India VP and head of marketing and distribution Amrita Pandey said, “Quantico is one of the most exciting shows in ABC Studio’s portfolio this year. We are happy for the show to be on Star’s network and this is a great addition to our existing shows on Star like Castle, How to Get Away with Murder and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. We are really happy to extend our long standing association with Priyanka Chopra from celluloid to a global TV show. After collaborating with us on incredible movies like Fashion, Kaminey and Barfi!, in which she played remarkable characters, we hope that Priyanka’s character in Quantico too, will resonate with television audiences.”


Quantico, which is touted to be one of the biggest shows of fall 2015, will also be the first American show to have an Indian-national playing the lead.
