The series was initially announced in January, and was to premiere on Yahoo! in the US. However, the telecast is part of a global release, according to the company. Produced in partnership with Playtone and Reliance Entertainment, the series is created by Tom Hanks with executive producers by Gary Goetzman and Amitabh Jhunjhunwala, Vice Chairman, Reliance Entertainment Group.
