Last month, OSN said it was set to launch a musical series inspired by the success of the American TV show ‘Glee’.
‘Hindistani’ will debut in October as the cornerstone of OSN’s comedy entertainment channel and tells the story of an Arab shop owner in Riyadh trying to balance his struggling business and his romance with an Indian woman.
In May OSN said all suspended TV channels had been restored after a small fire affected broadcasting.Around 75 television channels were temporarily suspended following a fire and a subsequent power shortage at the broadcast centre in Dubai’s Media City.
