Mumbai: Global Content Hub by Zee, the syndication division of Zee Entertainment Enterprises Limited (ZEEL), is heading to MIPTV with a lineup that includes an Indian drama, lifestyle shows and a documentary feature.
This year marks 25 years in the business for Zee TV, and the company’s newest Indian drama JeetGayi TohPiyaaMorre (Against the Odds) is debuting at the market. The story centers on two rival families, the Chauhans and the Rajawats. Marriage into the Rajawats was considered a curse, but fate took an unfortunate turn and the Chauhans had to marry their daughter Devi to the grandson of the Rajawats.
The MIPTV slate also features two lifestyle shows from Zee’s U.S. channel Z Living. Altar’d sees overweight couples work with a trainer to become fit 12 weeks before their wedding. In Finding Fido, canine expert Seth Casteel helps dog owners-to-be find the perfect furry friend to suit their lifestyles.
The 4K/UHD feature documentary Life of Earth from Space, meanwhile, delves into the history of our planet. It features a combination of stunning footage and cutting-edge CGI.
