National Geographic to turn the spotlight on the Galta gang in ‘The M Company’

If you haven’t heard about Jaipur’s notorious Galta gang, you soon will, thanks to National Geographic Channel. In these days of D-Company and gang wars, it is but natural that the media turns its focus on such gangs. Nat Geo’s new series, ‘The M Company’, premiering on September 10, promises to unfurl some startling revelations.

No, it is not about some new underworld gang to rival the D-Company, but a 60-strong troop of rhesus macaques that have made a Hindu temple on the outskirts of Jaipur their home. The series highlights these creatures’ phenomenal ability to rule and conquer what ever they lay their sights on. ‘The M Company’ members are dreaded as well as worshipped in India.

Speaking about the series, Rajesh Sheshadri, Senior Vice President – Content and Communication, National Geographic Channel India, said, “‘The M Company’ is an action-packed series, which features some of the most exciting day-to-day footage on a notorious monkey gang captured through the Nat Geo lens. The series explores the unique and unseen side of the monkey kingdom in urban surroundings.”

‘The M Company’ features two half hour long episodes back to back every Wednesday at 9 pm. This six-episode long series will focus on what makes these intelligent creatures so revered and admired.

The series is being extensively promoted on air across leading channels as well as online. Nat Geo has also developed an exclusive microsite for ‘The M Company’ on Viewers can log in to check out episode details, schedule, factoids, episode videos and a photo gallery.
