Netflix’s first Indian drama series

Netflix is diving into Mumbai’s criminal underworld with its first Indian drama series, as it seeks original local-language content to bolster its push beyond the US. The online streaming company said yesterday that it would produce a screen version of Sacred Games, a detective thriller by Indian novelist Vikram Chandra… Original content has been a big factor behind Netflix’s success in the US, notably the critically acclaimed political drama House of Cards. Over the past year it has begun rolling out self-produced non-English language series, including an adaptation of a Japanese novel, and French political drama Marseille starring Gérard Depardieu. The push beyond English is in line with Netflix’s rapid evolution from a US-focused entertainment provider to a global one.
