As it aims to beef up its subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) bouquet Disney+ Hotstar is set to create, in association with All3Media International, a local adaptation of award-winning Irish thriller-mystery Blood.
Blood Hotstar 28March2022
Originally created by Sophie Petzal, the show is an intimate drama and psychological thriller about familial bonds, memories, and the past’s impact on the present. The title is an enigmatic narrative that will credit its audience with intelligence and suspense, as it masterly explores the many perspectives of the same situation that sits on the brim of dark, unpredictable mystery.

Helmed by Gurmmeet Singh as the showrunner, and directed by Mihir Desai, the new adaptation will be produced by Dreamers & Doers Co, a premium content studio owned by Reliance Entertainment.

The programme will run on the Hotstar Specials channel of the SVOD platform and comes after the company found success with drama Rudra-The Edge of Darkness.

Commenting on the launch, Gaurav Banerjee, head of content, Disney+ Hotstar, and HSM Entertainment Network, said: “We are elated to announce the Indian adaptation of award-winning drama Blood, thereby, further strengthening our thriller offerings. The demand for entertainment is rapidly evolving, and viewers’ want for new-fangled content is expanding. On our journey to engage with millions of viewers, we are delighted to be able to collaborate with the most prolific creative minds at All3Media International to present stories that defy narratives to satiate our viewer’s appetite for unparalleled entertainment experience.”

Added All3Media International’s EVP APAC Sabrina Duguet: “We are delighted to bring an Indian version of this fantastic drama that will join the growing roster of original content produced exclusively for Disney+ Hotstar. Sophie Petzal’s impeccable writing skilfully draws viewers into the story with its universally relevant themes and innovative take on the thriller-mystery genre, making Blood perfect for Indian adaptation, and we look forward to this gripping story about family, grief and truth arriving in India.”
