For Canadian Eyes Only: Russell Peters Coming to New Original Crave TV Series


Russell Peters is set to star in a new four-part one-hour original series from Crave TV in partnership with CTV.

The new series, RUSSELL PETERS IS THE INDIAN DETECTIVE, is described as a “fish-out-of-water dramedy”. RUSSELL PETERS IS THE INDIAN DETECTIVE is set to begin production this fall in 4K. The production will shoot in Durban, Mumbai, and Toronto, before premiering on CraveTV in 2017.

“I couldn’t be happier that my first leading role in a series will be on a show with not only my name in the title, but a show that lets me do drama and comedy at the same time,” said Russell Peters. “The fact that it’s actually set in Canada and India is an added bonus!”
