In 2022, Reliance Entertainment has announced the setting up of a new premium content studio, ‘Dreamers & Doers Co.’. The studio will bring the best stories, creators, directors and platforms together to deliver premium, exciting and new-age content to audiences.
The studio follows an “idea and creator first policy “and aims to provide world-class shows in a burgeoning market where the audience is constantly hungry for aspirational, exciting, high-octane entertainment. The idea was to curate a space where creators, directors, showrunners and writers feel comfortable making the best shows and films of their careers. The company is also working with leading rights holders to bring top-of-the-line scripted and unscripted international formats to India.
Dreamers & Doers Co. is spearheaded by former ZEE TV programming head Namit Sharma, an industry veteran with more than 25 years of experience. Apart from his experience with various leading media companies like Sony Entertainment Television, Wizcraft and Yashraj Films, he has also produced well-appreciated and successful digital series along with Reliance Entertainment in the last few years. Some of them include Kaushiki, Girlfriends, YoKe Hua Bro (all on Voot), Promax award-winning branded content series Teachers Genuine Stories, comedy special Family Tandoncies featuring Amit Tandon for Netflix and multi-award-winning Black Widows for Zee5. In the past, he has served as the executive producer for Indian Idol Season 5, and creative director for Sanjeevani: A Medical Boon.
The first production of the studio is ‘Masoom’, a Disney+ Hotstar original and an official adaptation of the award-winning Irish psychological thriller named ‘Blood’. The showrunner of the series is Gurmmeet Singh (Mirzapur, Inside Edge) and the Director is Mihir Desai (Mirzapur). The show is currently streaming on Disney+ Hotstar.
