Sony and Fireworks together launch a new prime time thriller

Sony Entertainment Television (SET) is launching a new show in its prime time slot of 9-10pm from Monday- Thursday. The show which goes on air on the 4th of April 2011, is titled- Surya: The Super Cop.

The show is being produced by 'CID' producer BP Singh's Fireworks Productions. The show is a crime series about a blind cop. The format has three separate investigative units working on different crimes with each crime to be aired as a start-to-finish story episode. The binding link between the three Crime Branch Units and the independent stories is a middle aged blind man, Surya, who is their friend, philosopher and guide. A genius with vast experience in investigating crimes, Surya is a former senior police officer, currently under suspension pending the report of a Departmental Inquiry probing a tragic incident where his passion to nab the culprits led to his being blinded and a few of his colleagues losing their lives.

Harsh Chhaya plays the male lead of 'Supercop Surya'. Mohit Malik, Kuldeep Malik, Priyanka Bassi and Kunal Verma also play pivotal roles in the show.

Singh told Adgully,"Getting the right star cast was very difficult. Besides once the show went on the floor for direction since there are three investigative units and all of them run parallel in an episode we have four different units that have been shooting continuously for over 30 days now. The show will comprise 32-36 episodes."

Singh added that the production house's association with SET has been a long standing one and he wishes that people like the new show as much as they liked CID and Aahat. "The show has a very different theme and the conflict in the words "blind cop" in itself creates curiosity. We expect the audiences to watch it with a lot interest and also expect to amaze people," he added. | By Prabha Hegde [prabha(at)]
