Bravo just gave the green light to the first all Indian American reality show. Move over Real Housewives of Miami because an East Indian version of the show is coming. The Emmy-winning production company behind The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Truly Original, will produce “Indian-ish.” The unscripted television show will feature multiple multi-generational families who immigrated to the United States from India, according to Deadline. The show promises to take a peek into the lives of the rich Indian Americans living in Miami in a fun light-hearted way.
According to Bravo, the docuseries will follow several Indian families in Miami, Florida. “Featuring the first ever all-Indian cast in an American docuseries, Indian-ish follows several families spanning three generations who have shared close friendships since they relocated to the Miami area decades ago. Because most of the young adults featured in the show live at home until marriage, it’s a constant tug of war between the parents trying to maintain a shared sense of history and culture and their adult children who are assimilating into American culture. Still, these families are determined to live their lives centered around the most important values for Indian-Americans: family, success, and tradition.”
NBC Univeral Media Village said in a statement, “It is a constant push and pull between their two worlds [parents and children], often resulting in funny family dynamics that are laugh out loud,”
Indian-ish is executive produced by Glenda Hersh, Lauren Eskelin, Michelle Schiefen, Ian Gelfand, Steven Weinstock, and Michael Meinecke. The show has no official air date.
Rich Indian Americans, in Miami, doing desi things sounds great. Can’t wait for the yelling, slaps and punches to be thrown, and especially the shaming by the aunties. This will go down as the greatest trash reality show ever. Nothing’s more entertaining than a passive-aggressive desi. Hopefully, Priyanka Chopra drops by.
