“’Quantico’ is my first international TV venture and I’m truly proud of it. I’m equally excited that the Star Network will showcase ‘Quantico’ as part of its prime time line-up on Star World and Star World HD in India, and I couldn’t think of a better launchpad in India for my TV debut,” Priyanka said in a statement.
“What makes it even more special for me is that it will be real-time…’Quantico’ will be available to Indian audiences almost immediately after its US airing. Audience’s response to our first trailer has been fantastic and I’m looking forward to working with the Star TV team to create a memorable launch campaign for the show,” she added.
The fact that “Quantico” is a first for Bollywood as well as for India where an “A-list actor like Priyanka Chopra is playing a lead in an international TV series”, makes it a special show for Star Network, said an official.
In the show, Priyanka plays Alex Parrish, a rookie FBI recruit with a mysterious past. The show also features actors Jake McLaughlin, Tate Ellington and Graham Rogers, who all play fellow recruits.
The show will narrate their adventures and experiences as they train on Quantico base in Virginia, and secrets of their past start to emerge.
