ABC is teaming up with Quantico star Priyanka Chopra on a new comedy series about a former Bollywood star. Chopra will executive produce the project which is being written by Sri Rao.
The untitled single-cam would follow a former Bollywood star who settles down in the suburbs of Ameria with her bi-cultural family and tries to bring her colorful lifestyle to an otherwise dull town. The project is based on the real life of Madhuri Dixit.
Chopra, Rao, and Dixit executive produce the series along with Sriram Nene, Mark Gordon, and Nick Pepper.
Rao is a Bollywood writer and has previously written on General Hospital: Night Shift.
Chopra currently stars on Quantico which is airing its third season in the fall. She was most recently seen on the big screen in Baywatch.
