Sameer Saxena said, "This is our second project with Netflix and we know their passion for bringing unique and diverse stories to the world. We’re very happy to be extending our relationship to create Kaala Paani, which is a fresh and uncharted genre in Indian storytelling. The series is a survival drama featuring an ensemble of characters who are all trying to escape the wrath of nature, as the vast sea confines them for thousands of kilometres. In this invisible battle between humans and nature, these individuals discover that their destinies are intertwined, not just with each other, but also with the environment."
Tanya Bami, Series Head, Netflix India said, "At Netflix, we are always looking for fresh distinct ideas that have a wide appeal for our large audience base. Be it Class, Scoop, or Rana Naidu, each story is distinct and has been very successful with our members. We are extremely excited to announce Kaala Paani, a first-of-its-kind survival drama, with compelling characters and deeply emotional storylines. This will be our second collaboration with Posham Pa Pictures, bringing the signature style of its immensely talented creator Sameer Saxena to our members."
Kaala Paani will have audiences embark on a journey through the salty seas and ocean breeze of the Andaman & Nicobar Islands. A grounded story about the fight for survival, the series questions audiences on how far they would go to survive.
