Sonali Bendre will make her OTT debut in The Broken News. The series, set to stream on ZEE5, is adapted from the BBC drama Press.

According to a press note, the plot features two rival news channels based in Mumbai - Awaaz Bharati, an independent, ethical news channel, and Josh 24/7 News, which offers sensationalist and invasive journalism - and what transpires between the main characters in the quest for news.

The Broken News also features Jaideep Ahlawat, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Indraneil Sengupta, Taaruk Raina, Aakash Khurana and Kiran Kumar. It is directed by Vinay Waikul.

The original UK series, Press, was created and written by Mike Bartlett (Doctor Foster, King Charles III). The Indian adaptation is a partnership between ZEE5 and BBC Studios India.
