Indian cricketing legend Mahendra Singh (MS) Dhoni, who took retirement in August 2020, is set to produce an animated series, titled “Captain 7”.
According to Indian media reports, the former Indian captain is producing the spy series himself. Mahendra Singh’s production company ‘Dhoni Production’ has also confirmed this web series.
According to the report, the first season of the spy series, which is currently in pre-production, will be based on Dhoni. The makers are aiming at a 2022 launch for the show. The Dhoni production and his wife Sakshi’s production house Black White Orange (BWO) will jointly create the animated spy web series.
An announcement was made on the official DE Instagram page, with a logo reveal for the show. They called it the beginning of India’s first animated spy universe based on MS Dhoni’s life, adding, “We can already feel the action!”
DE and BWO promise to create a premium show, with new seasons coming out annually. They plan on distributing their show to the world’s biggest streaming services. Previously, DE produced the docuseries titled Roar of the Lion, which was based on MS Dhoni’s IPL cricket team Chennai Super Kings’ 2018 season, after their return from a two-year spot-fixing ban. Former Indian cricket captain and wicketkeeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni retired from international cricket in August last year.
