Indian actress Priyanka Chopra, who has found a foothold in Hollywood, is reportedly executive producing a comedy series about Bollywood’s dancing diva Madhuri Dixit’s life for US network ABC, reported Variety.
The currently untitled single-camera series is based on the Devdas stunner who settles in the suburbs of America and brings her colourful life to an otherwise dull town. The series will depict the real life of Dixit, who will also be the executive producer of the upcoming series.
Madhuri married Dr Sriram Madhav Nene in 1999, and relocated to the US where she lived for a decade with her husband and two sons, before returning to Bollywood in 2001.
Sri Rao, a Bollywood writer who scripted shows like General Hospital: Night Shift, will pen the pilot and executive produce, as will Dixit’s husband, Sriram Nene. Mark Gordon and Nick Pepper will executive produce through the Mark Gordon Company (MGC), which currently produces Ray Donovan, and Quantico, among many other shows. ABC Studios will co-produce with MGC.
