Star World has confirmed it will premiere Priyanka Chopra’s American drama ‘Quantico’ next month.

The show, which will air on ABC in America, will be broadcast almost immediately after its US airing.

Produced by Disney���ABC Television Group�۪s television production division, ‘Quantico’ has created a lot of buzz since the launch of its first trailer in May this year.

A Star India official spokesperson said, ���This is a first for Bollywood as well as for India where an A-List actor like Priyanka Chopra is playing a lead in an international TV series. There is a lot of chatter and excitement in the country for this show and we are thrilled that Star World will give this magnum-opus show an imposing launch platform that it rightly deserves.�۝

Priyanka Chopra said, ���Quantico is my first international TV venture and I am truly proud of it. I�۪m equally excited that the Star Network will showcase Quantico as part of its primetime line-up on Star World and Star World HD in India, and I couldn’t think of a better launchpad in India for my TV debut. What makes it even more special for me is that it will be real-time.�۝

���Audience response to our first trailer has been fantastic and I am looking forward to working with the Star TV team to create a memorable launch campaign for the show. Being part of a major TV show like this has been a whole new experience for me. I�۪m looking forward to a weekly date with viewers from across the world, and I hope this is just the beginning of a long lasting relationship with Star Network,�۝ Chopra added.

‘Quantico’ launches on Star World India on 27th September. A UK broadcaster is yet to be confirmed.
