Locomotive Global, the content company set up by former Sony Pictures honcho Sunder Aaron and Scott Anderson of Anderson Media, has acquired rights for the drama series Ray Donvan from CBS Studios International. The series will feature an Indian cast.


Said Aaron: “India is one of the biggest entertainment markets in the world. There is a voracious appetite for high-quality drama series throughout the region. We think Ray Donovan, with its complex and gritty storylines and strong anti-hero central character, is in sync with the themes and genres that are resonating with Indian viewers right now. Our adaptation will bring Ray into the Indian milieu with the protagonist now a “fixer” in Bollywood. We look forward to developing this first-rate series for a whole new fanbase.”


Added Roxanne Pompa, Vice President, International Formats for CBS Studios International said: “India has become an increasingly important market for scripted drama and we are seeing more and more high-quality content coming from the region. Locomotive’s idea to adapt the story and iconic central character of Ray Donovan in India market is both exciting and timely and we look forward to seeing how Indian viewers will respond.” Locomotive Digital is reported to be identifying broadcast and digital distribution partners.
