FremantleMedia India launches maiden web series- 'Confessions – It's Complicated'

FremantleMedia India has conceptualised and produced an innovative web series titled ‘Confessions – It’s Complicated’. It would include the use of Facebook Live, which enables people to share their experiences and perspectives in real time, as a part of the show.

Confessions – It’s Complicated follows the story of Sameera Saxena, Raka Ghosh, Nupur Murthy – in their twenties, out of college and raring to fly out of their nests. ‘Confessions’ is all about the three spirited, vivacious girls from different parts of the country, who find themselves under one roof and one office in the city of dreams, Mumbai. Like any newbie in the city, they face struggles: some professional, some personal, some intentional, some unintentional, some created by others, some created by the girls themselves. But through all of these, they learn the art of survival, thrive on these ups and downs confronting their fears, chasing their dreams while holding on to their true, unique selves. The soundtrack is being composed by renowned musician Leslie Lewis and sung by Anushka Manchanda.

Vidyuth Bhandary, Business Head at FremantleMedia India said, “We at FremantleMedia, strive to develop new formats and explore innovative ways to integrate non-traditional platforms. Confessions – It’s Complicated is a unique web series that integrates social media to offer a novel digital program for audiences that are looking for socially relevant, contemporary and fun entertainment."

Excited about launching Web-series ‘Confessions’, Myntra’s CMO & Head of International Brands, Gunjan Soni said, “ We see digital and storytelling as a powerful way to engage with Young people. ‘Confessions’ Web-Series celebrates independent young women and hence close to our beliefs. We hope the viewers will also enjoy the shopable styles the protagonists will be wearing!’'

Manish Aggarwal, VP, Marketing & Head of Monetisation, Myntra said, “A large part of our target audience are millennials and they spend considerable amount of time on social media.

The banter, the camaraderie and series of emotions are very relevant to our core target audience, it will be interesting to see how the 3 young girls experiment with Freedom and Fashion and the Choices they make to stay afloat in the maximum city.”
