MUMBAI: Panorama Studios is launching its first web-series titled Bar Code in partnership with One Digital Entertainment. The series will have 10 episodes and will be shot in real nightclubs in Mumbai.

Speaking on the new tie-up, Panorama Studios producer and MD Abhishek Pathak said ”With the current web-series space being heavily cluttered and with most of them being imitations of one another, we at Panorama Studios were on the lookout for something clutter-breaking and something that would stand out, and in Bar Code we found the right script which deals with the fascinating world of Bombay’s nightclubs, making it very exciting for us to to be launching it as the first web-series out of the variety of other web-content being developed at our studio.”

 “Bar Code looks closely at what goes on behind the scenes in one of the most glamorous businesses in the world. The plot has an interesting hook, the characters, humor and the drama are very relatable while the whole look and feel will be very upscale and chic. The treatment of the music will have an interesting mix of EDM, Bollywood and Deep House, which should connect with youth segment across the country”, added writer-director Vignesh Shetty.

The casting process is underway and renowned actors are being considered to play the male and female leads. Production will begin in mid-June 2016.

Commenting on the association, One Digital Entertainment COO and co-founder Gurpreet Singh said, "Panorama Studios have delivered amazing stories in the form of bollywood movies so far and now with their entry into web shows, am pretty sure they will set new benchmarks in the industry. We are very delighted to partner with them and are looking forward to engage both the consumers and brands with such an innovative concept."
