Netflix Inc., the world's leading Internet television network, today announced two new Netflix original series from India; ‘Selection Day’, based on the book by acclaimed author Aravind Adiga (‘White Tiger’); and ‘Again’, a supernatural, female-led detective series set in New Delhi and written by Marisha Mukerjee (‘Quantico’).

"We are excited to be expanding our slate of originals in India. These projects have specifically local subjects, but will be great for our global audience, and are supported by world class talent." said Erik Barmack, vice president of international original series at Netflix.

Selection Day, a compelling story of cricket and corruption, is based on Booker Prize winning author Aravind Adiga’s novel of the same name. This coming of age tale depicts the glory and rivalry in the city of Mumbai.

It will be produced in partnership with Seven Stories. "When I first read Selection Day I was completely overwhelmed by the scale and ambition of Aravind’s vision - and moved to my core by its emotional power.…." said Anand Tucker, CEO of Seven Stories. “We are delighted to be working with Netflix on what feels like a new chapter in the age of global storytelling, and we are bowled over by Erik and his team’s passion for this story."

Set in the busy and colourful city of New Delhi, detective series ‘Again’ tells the story of a female homicide detective who must put her career and life on the line when a recent murder connects to closed cases from her past, proving she has a serial killer on her hands. As she seeks justice, the answers she uncovers along the way not only affect her life, but also challenge the faith, beliefs, and relationships of everyone surrounding her.

“When it comes to telling groundbreaking evocative stories, I cannot think of a better partner than Netflix to bring this show to India and to audiences across the globe” said Marisha Mukerjee. “The series not only speaks to my own duality and cultural heritage, but also to the universal grey that exists between life and death, where religion intersects justice.”
