MUMBAI – The American series, “Ray Donovan,” is set to be remade in India after an international production company, Locomotive Global, Inc., acquired the rights from CBS Studios International.

Talking about the Indian version of the series, Sunder Aaron, co-founder of Locomotive Global Inc., said: “India is one of the biggest entertainment markets in the world. There is a voracious appetite for high-quality drama series throughout the region.
