Mumbai, October 3, 2018: Eros International PLC (NYSE:EROS) (“Eros”), a leading global company in the Indian film entertainment industry, announced today that Eros Now, its cutting-edge digital over-the-top (OTT) South Asian entertainment platform will premiere its original series SMOKE at the coveted annual event MIPCOM 2018, being held at Cannes in France on October 15 under the Made in India Originals category. The only Indian web series to be showcased in Cannes this year, Smoke is a crime drama that will take audiences on a thrilling and eye-opening journey set in the underbelly of Goa.

The teaser of the show was launched today which stars an eclectic ensemble cast of Kalki Koechlin, Mandira Bedi, Jim Sarbh, Amit Sial, Gulshan Devaiah, Satyadeep Mishra, Neal Bhoopalam, Prakash Belawadi and the late Tom Alter. All episodes of Smoke will be available for binge-viewing from October 26, 2018 exclusively on Eros Now. The first look of the series will be premiered at MIPCOM with the audience combining the global entertainment fraternity including distributers, broadcasters as well as executives from the global entertainment industry.

Commenting on Smoke’s showcase at MIPCOM, Ridhima Lulla, Chief Content Officer, Eros Group said, “It is indeed a great honour to be selected and we are thrilled to showcase the series to a global audience before it premieres on Eros Now. Smoke couldn’t be more different from our first series Side Hero where we launched our originals with a self-deprecatory comedy, a relatively untested genre. Smoke on the other hand is a gritty, dark crime drama portraying the never seen side of Goa. There’s no place in India quite like Goa and the show with its unique take on the paradise state makes for a perfect choice out of India to be launched at MIPCOM. With Eros Now originals, we want to continue investing in the brand ‘Eros Now’ to represent a culture of what the youth want to consume”.

This eleven-episode binge-worthy series, directed by Neel Guha is a game of smoke and mirror, shifting loyalties and brutal cover-ups all against the backdrop of Goa, a state as glamorous as it is unsuspecting of the menace that lurks underneath its surface. The sound track for the series has been composed by well-known musician Karsh Kale, who has redefined the Asian Underground genre of music. The show will be available for Streaming Globally on Eros Now starting October 26.
