21 September, 2019: The highly anticipated Amazon Original Series The Family Man, is set to make waves on Amazon Prime Video! Created by the award-winning duo Krishna D.K. and Raj Nidimoru (Stree, Go Goa Gone, Shor In The City), The Family Man is a ten episode series that will be available to stream exclusively on Amazon Prime Video across over 200 countries and territories. The Family man is an edgy drama-thriller series, which tells the story of a middle-class man who works for a special cell of the National Intelligence Agency. While he tries to protect the nation from terrorists, he also has to protect his family from the impact of his secretive, high-pressure, and low paying job. The highly anticipated series is brought to life by some of India’s award winning and highly acclaimed actors, Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Sharad Khelkar, Neeraj Madhav, Gul Panag, Sundeep Kishan, Darshan Kumaar, Sunny Hinduja, Shreya Dhanwantary and others.
Jay Marine, Vice President – Amazon Prime Video, said “We are incredibly excited about the growth of Prime Video in India. One of the big drivers of our success in India is our Indian Amazon Originals and we are delighted that we will soon be launching our latest Amazon Original series – The Family Man. With a strong storyline, an all-star cast and incredible performances, the show is certain to find audience love not just in India but around the world.”
Vijay Subramaniam, Director and Head, Content, Amazon Prime Video India, said “With The Family Man, Amazon continues to bring distinctive and high quality storytelling to our audiences, reinforcing our commitment to being a home for talent, both in front of and behind the camera. The Family Man is a fast-paced drama-thriller that redefines mainstream viewing by bringing high-caliber creators such as Raj & DK along with an all-star cast including Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani, Neeraj Madhav, Gul Panag, among others. The show seamlessly couples drama, action, thrill and surprisingly wry humor in a highly binge-worthy 10 episodes. Serious geo-politics forms the backdrop of the drama-thriller, taking The Family Man across the country, as he attempts to serve the nation. Viewers will also get deep insights into very relatable struggles of a Family Man, who attempts to balance both work and family.”
Raj & DK, Producers of the Amazon Original, The Family Man, through their production company, D2R Films said, “We have been wanting to get into long-form storytelling, and were waiting for the right platform. And we found an amazing partner in Amazon Prime! It has truly been a wonderful journey, the start of a new and exciting innings, creating our first show. With The Family Man, we tried a new genre and an approach both challenging and satisfying. We tried our take on geo-politics, blended it into an action-y thriller and added doses of quirky humour that is usually not associated with a serious genre like this. Loosely inspired by present-day events, it is a grounded take on the life of a middle-class guy who is also tasked with the job of fighting terrorism. The Family Man is an ode to the common man – his hopes, aspirations, responsibilities and troubles. In this case, he’s also pretty screwed – balancing family and saving the country.”
