THE INDIAN DETECTIVE, a fish-out-of-water story with equal doses of comedy and high-stakes drama, follows Toronto cop Doug D’Mello (Peters) as he becomes embroiled in a murder case while visiting his father, Stanley (Kher) a retired airline pilot in India. The investigation leads Doug to uncover a dangerous conspiracy involving David Marlowe (Shatner), a billionaire property developer, while dealing with his own ambivalence towards a country where despite his heritage, he is an outsider.

The series was created, executive produced, and written for Russell Peters by Frank Spotnitz and Smita Bhide (Hunted, Transporter: The Series).

It is executive produced by Blue Ice Pictures’ Lance Samuels and Daniel Iron (Madiba, The Book of Negroes), Wonder Worldwide’s Mark Burton (WaterTallulah), Russell Peters (Hip-Hop Evolution), CPI Pictures’ Clayton Peters (Breakaway, Russell Peters Versus the World), and Seven Summits’ Paul Canterna.
