Veteran comedy writers Laurence Marks and Maurice Gran have teamed up with Asian comedian Sanjeev Bhaskar to write Mumbai Calling, a sitcom set in an Indian call centre.
The Jewish duo are best known for such hits as Birds Of a Feather and Shine On Harvey Moon.
The sitcom, which will have a pilot show made in India and the UK, will be shown later this year on ITV1.
As well as co-writing, Bhaskar will star as a British-born Indian sent to India.
According to reports, if the pilot is received well by viewers, a full series will be produced.
