Mumbai : Zee Group’s newly launched GEC &TV is all set to launch two new shows this September – ‘Agent Raghav’, a crime fiction, and a family game show ‘Deal or No Deal’.
Produced by Contiloe Pictures, ‘Agent Raghav’ will be played by Sharad Kelkar. The show is slated to go on air from September 5 and will replace singing reality show, ‘The Voice’, at the weekend 9.00 pm slot.
Meanwhile, ‘Deal or No Deal’, which is also launching on September 5, will be aired at 8.00 pm. The show will be hosted by TV and film actor Ronit Roy.
A source close to the development said, “‘Agent Raghav’ will be shot extensively across the country. The makers are currently scouting for locations. As for ‘Deal or No Deal’, the show will be presented in a different avatar from the one witnessed before. With ‘Deal or No Deal’, &TV further strengthens its non-fiction offering, while it enters crime genre with ‘Agent Raghav’.”
Produced by Endemol India, ‘Deal or No Deal’, an international adaption, returns on Indian television screen on &TV after nine years.
‘Deal or No Deal’ is another addition to the list of international formats explored by & TV. The channel had launched with the Shah Rukh Khan-hosted ‘India Poochega Sabse Shana Kaun’ and then followed it up with other international adaptations likes ‘Killer Karaoke’, and most recently, ‘The Voice’.
