Legendary Global and Library Pictures are set to back a Hindi series from Sacred Games co-director Vikramaditya Motwane.

The Los Angeles-based production banners have teamed up to co-finance two seasons of the yet-to-be-titled series, reported Variety.

The series will be executive produced, written and directed by Vikramaditya Motwane. Abhay Koranne, who co-created the series with Motwane, will also serve as a writer.

Legendary neither revealed the title nor a log-line for the project. However, the company described the series as a young adult dark comedy-drama.

“This is a story very close to my heart and I am looking forward to collectively creating an incredible experience for local as well as global audiences,” Vikramaditya Motwane said in a statement.

The filmmaker will also produce via his banner Andolan. The deal is a precursor to an ongoing relationship between Motwane and Legendary Global as part of the company’s continuing expansion of local language production.

Vikramaditya Motwane is best known for directing acclaimed films such as the coming-of-age drama Udaan, period romance Lootera, survival drama Trapped, and vigilante actioner Bhavesh Joshi. After the two-part Netflix series Sacred Games, he collaborated with Blumhouse to produce horror series Ghoul for the streaming giant.
