Bollywood actress Priyanka Chopra, who has found a foothold in Hollywood, is reportedly executive producing a comedy series about Bollywood’s dancing diva Madhuri Dixit’s life for US network ABC.
According to an exclusive report by variety.com, the yet untitled series is based on the real life of Madhuri, who will also executive produce the project.
The story would follow how Madhuri settles down in the suburbs of the US with her bi-cultural family and tries to bring her colourful lifestyle to an otherwise dull town.
In reality, Madhuri had taken a break from showbiz when she married Sriram Nene, who was based in US back then and shifted to Denver from Mumbai to start a family. The mother of two sons returned to showbiz around five years ago, and continues to be one of the most charming beauties in the Hindi film industry.
Just last month, Madhuri had teased something new and exciting was going to be announced. “Loving downtime in the US. Back up soon with announcements. Til then enjoy,” she had tweeted.

Sri Rao, a writer for shows like “General Hospital: Night Shift”, will pen the pilot and executive produce the series, as will Madhuri’s husband.
Sri Rao took to Twitter and wrote, “Thrilled to finally announce my exciting new project with these two legends and icons @MadhuriDixit @priyankachopra.”
He also posted a picture of himself with the two Bollywood biggies.

It would be a comedy series, which will also include Priyanka Chopra as one of the executive producers. Mark Gordon Company (MGC) and ABC studios will produce the show. The cast and crew information has not been made official as of now.
On the work front, Priyanka Chopra will start work for Season 3 of ‘Quantico’ and is also shooting for a couple of Hollywood movies, A Kid Like Jake and ‘Isn’t It Romantic’. Her production venture Purple Pebbles’s next project ‘Kay Re Rascala’ is also set for release soon.
