'Doctor Foster' will be remade in India following the sale of the scripted format to streaming platform Hotstar Specials, reports variety.com.
Disney-owned Hotstar has collaborated with BBC Studios to adapt the series for the Indian audience. The yet-untitled show will be launched on Hotstar later this year.
The deal is the latest in a number of BBC dramas to be adapted for the Indian market, including 'Luther' and 'Criminal Justice'.
"The original 'Doctor Foster' has a tremendous following internationally, and we believe that an Indian version will work very well in our region," said BBC Studios' business head of production India, Sameer Gogate.
