New Delhi: Taking a strategic step towards international partnerships, IN10 Media Network’s production arm, Juggernaut Productions has joined hands with the UK based Nucleus Media Rights, a fast-growing television production and distribution company, and creator Brendan Foley, for the international mini-series, Mark Twain in India.

Juggernaut Productions will be the Indian development, production, and distribution partner for the project. "We are glad to partner with Nucleus Media as it illustrates our commitment towards creating global content,” said IN10 Media Network, VP-corporate strategy, and development, Mansi Darbar highlighting that the collaboration is a significant first step for IN10 Media’s Juggernaut Productions to bring forth its expertise to the international foray while developing and producing the content, locally. 

The mini-series Mark Twain in India narrates the story of the author, Mark Twain’s life-saving and life-changing tour to India during a personal tragedy and ruin when all appeared lost. In a vast and remote subcontinent, he discovers his love for life through India’s history and humanity.

Juggernaut Productions' chief operating officer, Samar Khan who will work closely with Foley and Nucleus on the project said, “Creating content with inspiring concepts is what excites us, and we look forward to working together on the project. Mark Twain was a curious traveller and his stories have been a part of our growing up years. It will be exhilarating to exhibit India through his journey of the country that he undertook in what was a crucial juncture of world history."

Nucleus Media Rights, chief executive officer, Bruno Zarka sees this collaboration as “an exciting development as we broaden our international connections. IN10 Media Networks- Juggernaut Productions shares our vision of a highly commercial series with wonderful production values and an all-star cast. We are confident that they can help deliver a series that will appeal to mainstream audiences everywhere.”

“It's wonderful to work with such a well-known and well-loved character as Mark Twain, yet in such a little explored facet of his life. Bankrupt and miserable, Twain rediscovered his love of life and of writing, as he explored India from mud huts to palaces, on an epic speaking tour," said creator Brenden Foley whose recent work includes Nordic Noir series Cold Courage forAMC+, Lionsgate, Viaplay and Britbox; The Man Who Died, currently in production in Finland for streamer ELISA; showrunner for crime series Body of Water for ZDFE, Nucleus,3zero2; Sherlock’s Daughter for Starlings, Mediawan and StoryFirst; and Ghostwalk for Blue Ant and Canada’s T+E channel.

Nucleus will make further announcements shortly about finance and other partners for Mark Twain in India.
