Indian Adaptation for One of Us


BBC Studios has signed a deal for an Indian adaptation of the hit drama series One of Us.

The thriller is set to be adapted as a Hotstar Telugu special by BBC Studios India. One of Us centers on the mysterious murders of childhood sweethearts Adam Elliot and Grace Douglas, who are found dead in their home soon after their honeymoon.

Sameer Gogate, business head of production for India at BBC Studios, said: “Hotstar is known for its focus on premium dramas and we are delighted to work with them again to deliver another high-end thriller. The great thing about adaptations is their world-wide appeal that transverse everything from cultures, to boundaries, and languages—and yet stay true to the essence of the story. We are very proud to be able to present One of Us to the Telugu audience. This marks our debut into the regional scripted market and what better way to launch than with this premium drama as a Hotstar Telugu special.”
