This venture will be jointly written and created by Vir and Nikkhil.
Besides this, Vir will have two more live stand-up comedy special set to stream on Netflix. The streaming service has ordered two additional live stand-up comedy specials from Vir – thus making him the first comedian out of India to have a Netflix original special.
It is further raining projects for Vir, as ABC has signed him for an hour-long weekly dramedy FBI series Whiskey Cavalier, produced by Warner Bros.
Currently his show Vir Das Abroad Understanding is streaming on Netflix. It tackled nationalism, globalism, good food, and bad politics in two crosscut performances in New York and New Delhi.
The first, of the two new Netflix shows, will be shot in San Franscisco.
