KOLKATA: The highly anticipated docu-series Sons of the Soil: Jaipur Pink Panthers has finally debuted on Amazon Prime Video. The five-episode series, directed by British director Alex Gale, stars the players from Pro Kabaddi League’s Jaipur Pink Panthers team, alongside Abhishek Bachchan, the team owner.

Produced by BBC Studios India, Sons Of The Soil: Jaipur Pink Panthers traces the team's journey through season 7 of the tournament and captures their highs and lows. Character-driven and illuminating in many ways, it is sure to resonate with fans of the contact sport who are starved of live kabaddi action.

This is Amazon Prime Video’s first Indian original sports docu-series about kabaddi. This unscripted show explores professional kabaddi and its players, with the help of honest and unfiltered documentation of everything – from the making of a kabaddi team, to the sacrifices that go into sustaining the team, making it an emotional journey you can’t help but feel invested in.

Since its inception seven years ago, the PKL’s popularity has only grown – as have the stakes in the competition. After riding high as the first ever PKL champions in 2014, the much-celebrated Jaipur Pink Panthers, arguably with the most popular team owners, failed to repeat the feat. This year, they decided to take a different route to reclaim their lost glory.

“Kabaddi is one sport that cannot be played well without teamwork, and that is the ethos of our Jaipur Pink Panthers family,” team owner Abhishek Bachchan said earlier. “I had made my digital debut with Amazon Original Series, Breathe: Into the Shadows so sharing the unfiltered story of my team, Jaipur Pink Panthers, through this global service made absolute sense. I believe we have created a show that will engage and inspire the audience.”
