MUMBAI—Amazon Prime Video India and Excel Media & Entertainment have released the trailer of the Amazon Original presentation, “Inside Edge,” a series to launch in over 200 countries and territories worldwide.
Starring Vivek Oberoi, Richa Chadda, Angad Bedi, Sanjay Suri, Sarah Jane Dias, Sayani Gupta, Tanuj Virwani, Siddhanth Chaturvedi and Amit Sial, “Inside Edge” will be available from July 10, exclusively on Amazon Prime Video.
This move marks Prime Video India’s foray into creating original content for Indian audiences. Created by Karan Anshuman, it is a 10-episode series that combines the worlds of cricket and entertainment.
Nitesh Kripalani, director and country head, Amazon Prime Video India, said, “Our goal is to change the way Indian customers consume premium entertainment in India and to change the way content creators create content for Indian and worldwide customers. For Amazon, this series will be the beginning of new, bold, original content in India, made with leading Indian content creators, talent, and writers.”
Farhan Akhtar, Excel Media & Entertainment said, “We are happy to collaborate with Amazon Prime Video, to bring to life content that is not confined. The scale at which ‘Inside Edge’ is produced is tremendous and something India has not seen before.”
Ritesh Sidhwani, his partner, added, “These are exciting times, not just for audiences but also for storytellers, artists, writers, and filmmakers. For Excel Media & Entertainment, making this original series for Amazon gave us the opportunity to think freely in making a show for a global audience. Together, we are taking the first step towards creating history.”
Added Karan Anshuman: “The freedom afforded to me has been the most liberating experience as a director and creator.” The series takes the viewer on a wild journey in a never-before-seen fictional series that follows the ups and downs of a cricket team.
The twists and turns in the lives of powerful characters reveal the game behind the game. Set within a season of the Powerplay League, a cricketing event, the central characters are the Mumbai Mavericks team, and their sub-plots take one into a vortex of manipulation, love, ambition, voyeurism, deceit, greed, lust and betrayal.
