Amazon Prime Video's 'The Remix' to feature Sunidhi, Amit and Nucleya

MUMBAI: Today, Amazon Prime Video India announced the creation of multiple unscripted originals (reality shows) for India. The lineup comes to life with three new reality shows. These shows include a music reality show in The Remix.

Based on an established format that has been sold in 15 countries across Asia, Africa and Europe, The Remix will be a 10-episode music reality competition show where DJs and singers pair up to create remixes and compete for a big prize. In each episode, the DJ/singer pairs will reinterpret a popular song in a new style or format, which will change from challenge to challenge. At the end of every performance, a panel of celebrity judges will choose who advances and who will be eliminated.  The Remix will be the first series to incorporate a DJ and electronic music but will feature many of the same core storytelling elements as its predecessors.

Some of the talent that will feature as judges on the show will include Nucleya, Sunidhi Chauhan and Amit Trivedi.  The show is produced by Grey Matter.

Prime Video, Asia Pacific head of content James Farrell said, “Reality shows are now more popular than ever, across a variety of genres. Customers globally have told us how much they enjoy reality shows, like the Japanese Prime Video fan favourite, The Bachelor Japan. With the launch of multiple new original reality shows, we’re aiming to offer our Indian customers a variety of quality new reality content to enjoy.”

Amazon Prime Video India director content Vijay Subramaniam said, “We’re always looking for new ways to engage with our customers. We know Indians enjoy reality TV, so we are creating new originals with the best new concepts and local Indian talent. We’re excited to add more variety to our service, and continue to reinvent the way Indian customers watch TV.”

The other original shows include Jestination Unknown and Comic Kaun. These shows will feature industry stalwarts such as Vir Das, Anu Menon, Tanmay Bhat, Sumukhi Suresh and Abish Mathew.
