Amazon Prime Video has released the trailer for the streaming giant’s first Indian Original, co-produced by Excel Media & Entertainment.

Amazon India.jpgThe ten-episode series, Inside Edge, launches on the subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) platform worldwide on 10 July.

“Our first Original, Inside Edge is a landmark moment for Amazon Prime Video in India as we begin our journey of creating original shows. 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,” said Nitesh Kripalani, director and country head, Amazon Video India.

Ritesh Sidhwani, Excel Media & Entertainment, 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. Inside Edge is high drama, great production value and we’re certain that audiences are going to enjoy it as much as we enjoyed creating it.”

Created by Karan Anshuman, the fictional series follows the ups and downs of a cricket team, following the lives of powerful characters as they reveal the game behind the game. It generates, according to Amazon, ‘a vortex of manipulation, love, ambition, voyeurism, deceit, greed, lust and betrayal’.

The series stars Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi as a menacing mastermind; while the team owner and film star is played by Richa Chadha. Angad Bedi plays the team’s captain, and Sanjay Suri is the coach. Tanuj Virwani, Sarah Jane Dias, Amit Sial, Siddhant Chaturvedi and Sayani Gupta also star in the series. Inside Edge is executive produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani.
