'Scoop' is Hansal Mehta and Netflix's maiden partnership and the Hindi web series is set up as the first season of a franchise, reported Variety.
Hansal Mehta has directed all the six episodes of the first season of 'Scoop'.
“The book is primarily based in the prison, I wanted to expand the scope of the book because I found the world that led her to prison very fascinating,” Mehta told Variety.
“It became this larger drama about a middle-class girl in Mumbai with the middle-class aspirations of being the best crime reporter, having pieces on page one. She blindly chases those ambitions not realizing that in the bargain, the reporter becomes the reported, so that fascinated me. I found the elements of a thrilling, investigative procedural drama," he added.
In the show, Karishma Tanna is playing the lead role of Jagruti Pathak. The cast also includes Prosenjit Chatterjee, and Harman Baweja.
'Scoop' has been produced by Matchbox Shots, Sarita Patil and Dikssha Jyote Routray.
The show will be premiering on Netflix on June 2.
