ABC News Studios has ordered a new series from Indian Matchmaking creator Smriti Mundhra’s Meralta Films, focused on the Muslim American dating scene.
Coming to Hulu in 2024, the series will follow Muslim Americans across the country as they navigate cultural traditions while seeking modern love. Mundhra serves as executive producer alongside Senain Kheshgi (Project Kashmir, The Diplomat).
Poh Si Teng ís overseeing the project for ABC News Studios.
“There is nothing more universal than the pursuit of love,” Mundhra said. “I am thrilled to collaborate with ABC News Studios on this project that will give audiences a chance to experience this journey from a perspective too rarely seen in the mainstream.”
“As a Muslim American, I’m excited to be part of a show that celebrates love and romance within our community,” Kheshgi said. “In a world where negative stereotypes often paint Muslims as monolithic, this is an important opportunity to showcase the unique stories, personalities and perspectives of our diverse community. I’m thrilled to be part of a project that has the potential to bring people together and positively impact the way Muslim Americans are perceived and understood.”
“ABC News Studios is committed to broadening our roster with shows that speak to the varied experience of our rich diversity. We are extremely excited to work with such accomplished producers to move this vision forward,” said Teng.
