TED Talks gets three more seasons

TED Talks

MUMBAI: Star India has renewed TED Talks India: Nayi Soch (TED Talks), a TV as well as digital series hosted by Shah Rukh Khan, for three more seasons. The inaugural edition of the show, which had premiered in December 2017, had reached 96 million viewers in the first season.

The first season featured speakers delivering inspiring and informative talks in TED’s signature style of 18 minutes or less. TED Talks speakers deliver TED Talks in Hindi on topics as varied as science and social justice before a live studio audience, with subtitles in Hindi and English. Nearly every talk features a short Q&A between the speaker and Khan that dives deeper into the ideas shared onstage.

Star TV CEO and chairman Uday Shankar said, “Star TV is committed to developing programming that goes beyond pure entertainment to inspire and educate our massive audience. Both the critical response and the tremendous viewer love for this series were key factors in our decision to bring Ted Talks back for at least three more seasons.”

TED head of television Juliet Blake, who executive produced the series, said, “We’re incredibly proud of this show’s accomplishments breaking barriers to reach new audiences, and look forward to spending the next several seasons inspiring a nation to embrace ideas and curiosity.”

TED Talks’ audience stretches beyond television on TED.com/india and for TED mobile app users in India.

TED head Chris Anderson said, “Ultimately TED’s goal is to develop compelling new content formats that can make ideas available and relevant to billions of people we haven’t reached yet. This journey with Star TV and Shah Rukh Khan has been one of the most exciting steps toward the goal. We love this partnership and can’t wait to get working on these new series.”
