Dead Pixels, the British programme created by Succession creator Jesse Armstrong, Sam Bain, and Phil Clarke’s Various Artists Limited, has been given the go-ahead for a Disney+ Hotstar version. The adaptation, which will be in Telugu, is the brainchild of BBC Studios India and Tamada Media. The CW acquired the American rights to the British television series Dead Pixels after it ran on E4 for two seasons.

It was created by Jon Brown and features actors, including Charlotte Ritchie from Ghosts and Rose Matafeo, the creator of Starstruck. The Telugu adaptation of this comedy series could be based on similar lines. However, the details of the upcoming comedy series are yet to be revealed by Disney+ Hotstar. But it seems it could be one of many English-language television programmes that have been adapted for Indian audiences, including Luther, The Night Manager, and Doctor Foster.
