MUMBAI: Sony TV’s flagship series Crime Patrol is set to bid adieu. The crime anthology series premiered in 2003 and completed fifteen years in 2018. It became the longest-running crime series in the country, kick starting a new trend.
business voip has exclusive information that Optimystix Entertainment has decided to part ways with the series.
The first season was produced Cinvestaas Limited. However, Vipul D Shah’s production house took over the show after that.
After three successful seasons, Optimystix will no longer produce the show. Does that mean the future of the show is in danger?
For the uninitiated, Crime Patrol is a weekend and daily property for the channel. While Optimystix produces the daily property, others are involved in the weekend one.
With Optimystix’s exit, the daily property is expected to shut down.
An informer reveals that by 15 August, the daily will bid farewell to its loyal viewers: ‘The end of July would be the last day of Optimystix handling the show.’
The future of the show is unclear. Crime Patrol is a hot property for the GEC, and it seems highly unlikely that the show would be shut down.
Despite repeated attempts, Shah did not respond to us. We tried contacting the channel spokesperson also with no results.
Ironically, few months ago, the show’s loyal host Anoop Soni announced his exit to explore more opportunities.
