ZEE TV is launching yet another new soap to fill the weekday 18:00 slot from mid-March.

‘Saath Saath’ as the drama will be known, is produced by Dinesh Bansal who has old popular soaps like ‘Basera’, ‘Kurukshetra’ and ‘Gharana’ in his credits.

According to a statement by the channel, “Saath Saath is an unusual friendship of two unusual women- one who is an illiterate village girl and the other a modern NRI and their trials and tribulations to fit in together with their in-laws.”

Currently ZEE TV UK’s schedule at 18:00 is occupied by repeat shows; ‘Saath Saath’ will expand the channel’s new policy of increasing original programmes during various dayparts.

‘Saath Saath’ launches on Monday 24th March at 18:00 and will air Monday through to Thursday.
