Zoya Akhtar to produce show about wedding planners
Mumbai, Dec 15 (IANS) Directors Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti, through their production banner Tiger Baby, will collaborate with Excel Entertainment to produce a show about wedding planners in association with Amazon.
Speaking at the first look of the Amazon Prime Video on Wednesday, Zoya said: “We are co-producing a show for Amazon. It is about two wedding planners who are set in Delhi. The first season will have 10 episodes and if it does well we will be making the second season.”
The show is reportedly titled “Made in Heaven”.
Apart from them, directors like Vikas Bahl, Vikramaditya Motwane, Farhan Akhtar, Ram Madhvani, D K Krishna and Raj Nidimoru, Sujoy Ghosh and Asif Kapadia will be making unique shows for the Amazon Prime Video.
Asked whether filmmakers are keen to concentrate more on making shows than films, Zoya said: “I don’t think that. This is a different and long format. So for a filmmaker and writer who are used to tell the story in two hours, this is an opportunity for us to tell a story in a long format.
“At the end of the day it’s filmmaking and writing. It’s just a different format and that’s why we are happy to experiment with it.”
Reema said: “I love watching shows as much as I love watching films. There is an advantage for us in making long format shows.”
