Mira Nair to adapt The New York Times’ expose on The Jungle Prince of Delhi into an Amazon Prime Original

Book and film adaptions have been one of the most common approaches for web series and shows. However, something new that director Mira Naira has in store for us is an article adaptation. In turn, Nair is all set to turn The New York Times’ expose, The Jungle Prince of Delhi into an Amazon Prime original. For the uninitiated, the article is about the royal family of Oudh.

The writer of the expose, Ellen Barry took to Twitter to make the announcement about the web series. She wrote, ”Exciting news: The Jungle Prince, my piece about one of Delhi’s great legends, a mysterious family who lived in a ruined palace in the forest, will be adapted for a series by the great @MiraPagliNair, Amazon & Sister Pictures, the producers of Chernobyl.”

Check out her tweet announcing the adaption of The Jungle Prince of Delhi as she quoted the Deadline:

Caitlin Roper, Head of Scripted Entertainment at The New York Times spoke to Deadline about their search for the ‘right partners.’ As was quoted, she said, ”Since its publication, The Times has been searching for the right partners to expand the story’s reach and we are thrilled to work with the incomparable Mira Nair, and to be producing The Jungle Prince series with Amazon Studios alongside Krasnoff/Foster Entertainment, Sister, and Fourth and Twenty Eight Films.”

The story is that of Prince Ali Raza, who resided at a hunting lodge, accompanied by his mother and sister. The family denied leaving the lodge back in time claiming to be descendants of the Oudh Royal family. In fact, they were adamant about not leaving the 14th-century lodge until they get their ancestral property back.

Hence, the series on The Jungle Prince of Delhi, in turn, will be narrating the story of their life in the palace and the aristocracy.
