Archana Anand, added, “Bringing ZEE5 into the US is so much more than just providing the South Asian diaspora here with a mega entertainment platform through which they can access a vast library of stories. It is a powerful bridge between them, their culture, and their languages.” 

As part of the launch, the streamer announced an incredible line-up of Originals and other blockbusters, across languages to release on the platform in the coming months that includes “Ladies & Gentlemen,” a 10-episode Bangla web-series directed by globally renowned director Mostafa Sarwar Farooki.

Produced by Nusrat Imrose Tisha, “Ladies & Gentlemen” aspires to tackle a few timely social themes, including gender inequality, rape culture, patriarchy and others. The lead character of Sabila, played by Tasnia Farin, embodies the struggle of working women in Bangladesh.

The eight-episode series will globally premiere on July 9.
