What is common between Pablo Escobar, Species II, and Hoodlum? Christopher Brancato, the esteemed showrunner, and co-creator of the hit American crime-drama web-television series Narcos. And he is coming to India!
As part of its plans to create ground-breaking content for the Jio platform, Siddharth Roy Kapur's Roy Kapur Films has invited Brancato to India to conduct a very special masterclass on creating, writing and directing original series. Brancato is being accompanied by Carole Kirschner, the Director of the Writers Guild of America's showrunner program. The Masterclass session will kick-start from Monday in Mumbai and will be attended by a select group of writers, filmmakers, producers and show-runners who have been invited by Roy Kapur Films and Jio.
The workshop will sharply focus on creative development for high-quality series, and sharing best practices in implementing the showrunner and writer empowered model. This is Siddharth's step towards building a strong foundation for a robust creative writing system in India for the Jio Originals platform set to launch next year.
`It is always good to learn from the best in the business and benefit from their experiences, especially when one is trying to forge new paths and break established norms. That is what we are aiming to do at RKF, and we couldn't have asked for better guides than Chris and Carole as we work towards producing world-class content for tens of millions of Jio subscribers. I am very excited about this initiative and eager to experience the interaction between Chris and Carole and some of the best creative minds in our country,` shares Siddharth.
