MUMBAI: After successfully releasing three original shows based on book adaptations, video-on-demand (VoD) platform ZEE5 is all set to release its next original web series ‘Skyfire’ which is adapted from the bestselling book ‘Skyfire’ by author Aroon Raman. The web series premieres 22nd May on ZEE5.

The OTT platform said that the eight-episode show is a first-of-its-kind sci-fi thriller in the Indian OTT space. It highlights the ecological disruption created by man and the aftermath humanity will face in the form of natural calamities.

Starring Prateik Babbar, Sonal Chauhan, Jisshu Sengupta, Jatin Goswami, and Shataf Figar, it deals with the poignant issue of the deteriorating weather conditions today and highlights how #EndIsNear.

Recently, ZEE5 India announced eight new book adaptations including Aroon Raman’s ‘Skyfire’, ‘The Wise Man Said’ – Priya Kumar, ‘Hutatma’ – Meena Deshpande, Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay’s historical novels – Tungabhadrar Teere and Kaler Mandira, ‘Mission to Pakistan’ – Late Maloy Krishna Dhar, ‘Karkatkranti’ – Indranil Sanyal and ‘Seven Days Without You’ – Anmol Rana.

Each of these best sellers have been written by renowned authors and the adaptions include stories across genres with each book being carefully handpicked.

Created by award-winning producer Shabina Khan, ‘Skyfire’ revolves around the unforeseen case of a boy from the slum disappearing, his search leads a historian and a journalist to strange and seemingly unrelated incidents, including warnings of natural calamities.

Commenting on the announcement, ZEE5 India programming head Aparna Acharekar said, “We are tapping into a new genre and adding sci-fi to our content library. The book by Aroon Raman is extremely engaging and our endeavour was to transcend the same literary magic on screen. The crux of the story is important and of high relevance today. We have received a lot of positive feedback on the teaser and promo released as a lead up to the premiere and we are looking forward to the launch this month.”
