ZeeQ brings universe of Amar Chitra Katha on Indian television

Kids’ channel ZeeQ has acquired 26 episodes of Amar Chitra Katha (ACK) from Ideas Box Entertainment. Ideas Box is an independent subsidiary of Amar Chitra Katha, which has conceptualised and produced the 26 episode series. ZeeQ has plans to beam the 26 episodes of ACK over 26 weeks during November 2012 to April 2013.

Commenting on the development, Subhdarshi Tripathy, Business Head, ZeeQ said, “ZeeQ has acquired this property of ACK from Ideas Box for three years. ZeeQ had planned to bring the class room lessons of history in engaging animated format on small screen and ACK is the first step in that direction.”

To name a few, the bouquet of 26 episodes on ZeeQ will consist of Birbal the wise, Ashoka, Prithviraj Chavhan, Chanakya, Shivaji, Vivekanand, Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh, Mother Teresa and the more. Every episode will explore two heroes and Itihaas, the voice of History, will tell the tale.

ACK was founded by Anant Pai in 1967. In 20 Indian languages, it is the largest selling book series and hence, is considered as one of the most favourite comic series of India. In a comic book format, it has captured the great Indian epics, mythology, history, folklore, and fables.

ACKs episodes capture the Indian heroes of Amar Chitra Katha from the comics and create a first of its kind comic format, which is fresh and interesting.

ZeeQ, the 32nd channel from Zee Entertainment Enterprises Ltd was launched in early November 2012 and now is available on the platforms of Dish TV and Videocon d2h.
