Cosmos-Maya will be launching Dr Tenali Rama HMKD
Indian animation studio Cosmos-Maya has partnered with Disney India and is preparing to launch its brand-new IP, Dr Tenali Rama HMKD, which is going to be aired on pay TV soon in mid-2021. The show’s production was started in 2020, as a part of an extensive launch plan of new shows for 2021. The studio will be seeing 4-5 new IPs coming out in both the TV and OTT space.
Dr Tenali Rama HMKD is a new show by Titoo, Cosmos-Maya’s creative team. It is a tribute to the doctors and medical professionals chronicling the life and daily shenanigans of Tenali, a 9-year-old child genius, and a qualified doctor. He runs his family’s hospital started by his Hindi-loving grandfather Dr. Murlidharan. He meets people and provides solutions to their problems and ailments with his problem-solving abilities and sharp wit.
Anish Mehta, CEO of Cosmos-Maya said, “DTR is an amalgamation of multiple types that define us Indians – he is a quick-witted, capable, jugaadu 9-year old kid and an NRI doctor in London, who lives and works with his extended family. We aim to inspire kids to make the best use of their wits and skills to give back and help people and inspire them to look up to the people of the medical industry. The show holds relatability for other family members as well who’ll laugh along to the cultural idiosyncrasies of an Indian family residing abroad. This is the USP of the show as this is a plot point that no Indian animated series has explored in the past. We have quite a few new shows lined up for a 2021 release with Disney India, and we will see DTR obtain the perfect reach on their network. We have the next seasons of Bapu, Gadget Guru Ganesha, and Selfie With Bajrangi undergoing production simultaneously and we see a chunk of business with our partners at Disney India.”
