The Tourist Getting an Indian Adaptation


Banijay Asia has inked a deal with All3Media International for the rights to create an Indian adaptation of the drama series The Tourist.

The award-winning drama created by Two Brothers Pictures centers on an Irishman who wakes up in an Australian hospital with amnesia after a car crash. He encounters a local woman who remembers him and volunteers to help him rediscover his identity. The few clues he finds hint that he has a dark past from which he must escape before it catches up with him. The remake will retain the essence of the original while infusing cultural elements unique to India.

Mrinalini Jain, group chief development officer at Banijay Asia and EndemolShine India, said: “We at Banijay are huge fans of Two Brothers and the thrilling masterpieces that they craft. The Tourist offers a unique blend of mystery and suspense that we believe will resonate deeply with our viewers. We are ecstatic to bring an adaptation of such a gripping and internationally celebrated series to Indian audiences. Collaborating with All3Media International allows us to maintain the high standards set by the original while infusing it with a distinct Indian touch.”

Sabrina Duguet, executive VP for the Asia Pacific at All3Media International, commented: “The Tourist has been a phenomenal success globally, and we are delighted to see it being adapted for the Indian market. Banijay Asia has an impressive track record of creating high-quality local adaptations, and we are confident that they will deliver an exceptional version of this globally loved thriller. We look forward to seeing how the story will be reimagined for Indian viewers.”
