Doordarshan to launch reality TV show 'Chance of a Lifetime'
Doordarshan will launch a reality television show 'Chance of a Lifetime', which will start on August 29. The show will see the contestants participate in a film-making competition.
Hosted and produced by Ashok Amritraj, the show will have seven episodes, with four teams comprising of participants from India, Singapore and the UAE making films on topics like AIDS, migration, poverty, universal education and economic development.
"This show was liked because of the unique concept and high production value, made by Hollywood level director Ashok Amritraj, and something that has immense appeal for the youngsters. 'Chance Of A Lifetime' has a unique concept that has not been explored by many GECs (general entertainment channels)," said a senior officer from Doordarshan.
The judges of the competition are well-known film personalities, including Santosh Sivan, Nagesh Kukoonor, Anubhav Sinha and Ketan Mehta. The winning film will get the chance to be a part of Cannes Film Festival.
