Asian streamer Lionsgate Play has unveiled its latest original, this time a coming-of-age series about four young men who move out of home for the first time.

Feels Like Home, which is from Sidhanta Mathur (Little Things, Minus One) and his prodco Writeous Studio, chronicles the lives of the four men in their 20s and explores their “eventful journey and transition from boys to men”.

Primary director of the series is Sahir Raza, while Prit Kamani, Anshuman Malhotra, Vishnu Kaushal and Mihir Ahuja will star.

It joins an expanding roster of originals on the streamer, which is operated by Starz and sibling Lionsgate India, including a remake of Lionsgate’s US series Casual and college romance drama U Special. These sit alongside global series such as Heels and Power Book III: Raising Kanan.

Rohit Jain, MD of Lionsgate South Asia & Networks – Emerging Markets Asia, said: “Our Indian original slate is well rounded with stories from an urban family to a college drama and now a sneak peek into the lives of four boys who our viewers will love.

“We want to tell more local stories and bring them to a global audience by continuing to expand our slate of Indian originals across languages and genres,” he added.

Jain told TBI Talks earlier this year that regional originals were a key focus for Lionsgate and explained in detail the types of shows he is looking for. The company also recently appointed an exec to run its streaming operations in the Philippines, following expansion in Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
