Amazon Prime is fast looking at newer ways to compete with Netflix. While Netflix is bringing a host of horror themed series, Amazon is going the comedy way. Amazon is signing up with OML, created by comedians like Sumukhi Suresh, Biswa Kalyan Rath, Anuvab Pal, Kenny Sebastian and others. These new comedy series will debut on Amazon Prime till February 2018. While Going Viral has already debuted, the others coming up are Lakhon Main Ek, P.G, Die Tryign, Making of Sakht Launda and others.

Lakhon Mein Ek is Biswa’s series about a 15 year old boy who makes mimicry videos but is forced to join IIT coaching institute Genius Infinity. He now has to deal with his studies and others like Bakri and Chudail, his roomates.

P.G is about a woman who stalks a man in a bid to win his heart. She has to deal with a suspicious boss and a cranky landlady.

Shaitaan Haveli is a horror comedy, about a B grade horror film maker who decides to shoot a film in a Haveli. Of course, things don’t go as planned.

This is interesting. Netflix has decided to work with foreign comedy talent like Jerry Seinfeld and Amazon is putting all its chips on Indian content.
