ZEE5 launched Abhay - one of the first procedural format crime thrillers, a genre not explored in the OTT space yet. Produced by B.P. Singh’s (popularly known for the famous crime TV series CID) Fiction Factory Productions, the series marks the digital debut of popular actor Kunal Kemmu who essays the role of SP Abhay Pratap Singh.

Inspired by real events, Abhay follows the inverted detective format of storytelling. In his digital debut, Kunal Khemu plays an investigative officer who solves bone-chilling murder cases while dealing with his own personal demons.


Speaking on his digital debut, Kunal Kemmu said, “It’s exciting to explore new formats and push your boundaries as an actor, and Abhay had it all. I am an avid consumer of long format web series like everyone else, and hence I know that a series such as Abhay has all the ingredients that the OTT viewer is looking for. Very excited to partner with ZEE5, given the content that they have produced and are planning to do in the coming months and I look forward to reaching out to the audience with this action-packed concept.”

Talking about the same, Manish Aggarwal, Business Head, ZEE5 India said, “This is the first time that a procedural format crime thriller has been explored in the OTT space and having a stalwart like B.P. Singh as the series director of Abhay makes it perfect.  Right at the outset, ZEE5 had endeavoured to offer viewers exciting and relatable stories from across the country, and Abhay is a testimony to this. Crime thrillers are a favourite especially with the male audience and is a genre that appeals to consumers across pop strata. I am confident that Abhay will be one of the most talked about shows among OTT viewers. "

Abhay is a unique offering to the viewers on Zee5, and strives to explore three genres - crime, action and entertainment. 

The crime thriller premieres on February 7, with two episodes unfolding each month, disrupting the traditional binge viewing habit of content on OTT platforms.
