Viu to launch thriller series in Middle East today

Viu, a pan-regional OTT video service provider, has added a new thriller series to its Viu Original portfolio. Unafraid is the second crime thriller to be released by Viu this year and will be available to watch in the Middle East starting today.

Written and conceptualised by Vikram Bhatt, Unafraid’s first 10 episodes have been released for viewers to binge watch. The crime thriller revolves around the life of an everyday Indian woman who rises above the prejudices and challenges she faces at home and her workplace to take on a criminal who is terrorising the city.

Commenting on the launch, Vishal Maheshwari, Country Head, Viu India, said: “After launching 25+ Originals across markets in India, we are all set to release the much-awaited series Unafraid this year. The beauty of collaborating with a production house like Lone Ranger is that the quality and content of the series is never compromised. We are positive that this series will also garner a phenomenal response as the other series made in association with Vikram Bhatt.”

Currently, Viu has over 20-million monthly active users across emerging markets. Viu launched more than 25 Originals this year in India, including Spotlight 2, It happened in Hong Kong, Kaushiki, and Truth and Tammanah, among others.
