Abundantia Entertainment announced the Hindi-language remake of the popular Israel series ‘The Hood’. According to a press release, Israeli-based media company Ananey Studios, which is a part of Paramount Global, has signed a deal with Abundantia to develop an Indian adaptation.
The production banner’s young-adult content vertical, Filters, will produce the teen drama series. The original show, which was titled ‘Shchuna’ in Israel, was created by Giora Chamizer. The plot follows the children of a small slum located in the heart of a wealthy settlement and explores the differences and problems between the poor and the rich.
“It is a matter of great honor to partner with a creative powerhouse like Ananey Studios and I am super pumped to develop the very popular and successful ‘The Hood’ in an Indian avatar for local audiences.
“The association with Ananey Studios underlines our vision to partner with top-quality global creators to bring impactful stories and unique story-telling voices for progressive Indian viewers. I am also excited to add to our slate of content for the rapidly-growing youth and Young Adult segments,” Vikram Malhotra, Founder & CEO of Abundantia, said in a statement.
The production banner’s upcoming titles include ‘Hush Hush’, a series starring Juhi Chawla, and Akshay Kumar’s OTT show debut ‘The End’.
