Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment and streaming service Netflix are working on an original series based on the book Bard of Blood. Penned by a young Indian author Bilal Siddiqi, the book will be adapted into an eight-episode high-octane political espionage thriller series.

“We have always tried to create world-class content and entertainment from India. Netflix has shown that Indian stories have a global audience and we would love to use this platform and its reach to tell more stories,” Shah Rukh said in a statement.

Set against the backdrop of the Indian subcontinent, the multilingual series will tell the story of an expelled spy, Kabir Anand who is recalled from his new life as a Shakespeare professor in Panchgani to save his country and long-lost love.

The series will be shot on a location and the characters will interact in Hindi, Urdu, English and other languages.

“We are thrilled to work with a brilliant, young writer like Bilal Siddiqi and take his gripping, inventive storytelling to Netflix members worldwide,” said Reed Hastings, Netflix founder and CEO.
