If you’re a huge Bollywood fan and you didn’t happen to live in the Denver suburbs in the mid-2000s, don’t worry: You didn’t completely blow it. According to Variety, Quantico star Priyanka Chopra is currently developing a single-camera comedy for ABC about the life of Bollywood star Madhuri Dixit. A critically acclaimed Bollywood actress and dancer, Dixit moved to the U.S. following her marriage to cardiologist Shriram Nene; both are set to executive-produce the project. Dixit, her husband, and their two children lived in Denver, Colorado, for roughly a decade before relocating back to Mumbai in 2011. The sitcom will following the life of a “former Bollywood star who settles down in the suburbs of America with her bi-cultural family and tries to bring her colorful lifestyle to an otherwise dull town.” In addition to Dixit’s extensive big-screen career, Chopra and the pilot’s writer, Sri Rao — former head writer on General Hospital: Night Shift — are both Bollywood veterans themselves. If you didn’t know how badly you wanted to mix your Hindi cinema references together with your snowboard and legal-weed jokes, you do now.
