MUMBAI: The leader in the Hindi general entertainment space, Star Plus is set to bring Hollywood one step closer to Indian screens. The channel has acquired the rights to the official adaptation of globally popular sitcom - Everybody Loves Raymond. The Indian adaptation, in Hindi, will be titled Sumit Sambhal Lega.

However, the Hindi adaptation will be very close to Everybody Loves Raymond just fine tuned to suit Indian sensibilities.

The story showcases Sumit as the Indian Raymond whose predicament is one that men face universally, of getting stuck in family situations post marriage that gives rise to a comical extravaganza.

To ensure that the nature and DNA of the original series remains intact, the channel has roped in the writer of the original series, Steve Skrovan to oversee the creative process on the show.

This is the first time that any writer from the original show has been involved in the adaptation. Skrovan has been a part of the Everybody Loves Raymond team right from the beginning in the capacity of a writer and co-producer and was with the show till its finale. His role in the Indian version includes providing creative direction to the writers working on the show.

Skrovan said, ?It was such a privilege to be a part of this from the beginning. Star Plus is the largest brand and most appropriate to get this show to people in India and even though Sumit Sambhal Lega will revolve around the man, the relationship between his wife and the family seems to fit perfectly in Indian culture.?

The channel has also adopted some of the best practices from Hollywood, including the adoption of Writer?s Room ? a platform where all the writers come together and brainstorm to create a masterpiece.

There is a team of dedicated writers for the show instead of one writer working on multiple shows at a time which is a standard practice.  Extremely popular in the west, writer?s room puts more focus on the writing aspect of the show, thus promising entertainment of highest quality.
