Zee TV ropes in Star's Rohini Singh as head of commissioning

MUMBAI: Zee TV has got on-board Rohini Singh as the new head of commissioning for the channel, who will be responsible for developing fiction content for Zee TV.

Her work speaks for itself and is driven by her passion for writing and storytelling. Her focus is always on recognizing and developing projects based around strong ideas with the potential to engage and entertain audiences. With her vast experience, Rohini will bring the very best from the established and emerging writers talent pool to Zee TV.  Known for its original and differentiated dramatic range and quality, Zee TV has scored some notable successes recently and Rohini is the right person to take it on to a new level. She and Charu Singh (head - fiction) will make a formidable team."


Singh said, “I look forward to steering Zee TV into the future and building on its success as it continues to be the home of the most original storytelling across a range of drama that is unique to it in the rapidly changing Indian television landscape. I am most excited to have this opportunity to commission and make entertaining, popular programmes for Zee TV audiences. We aim to make programmes that people watch and talk about in equal measure, and that’s a challenge I look forward to.”
