“Shantaram” – the first trailer of the most unlucky production from Apple TV +

In June 2018, Apple commissioned a series adaptation of the novel “Shantaram” by Gregory David Roberts. However, the production suffered many problems and delays along the way, and at one point even looked as if it would never be finished. However, it was announced quite unexpectedly that the premiere of the first episodes of the series would take place in October, and now its first official trailer has been published.

Shantaram tells the story of an Australian criminal convicted of bank robberies who manages to escape from prison, flee to India and hide in the slums of Mumbai, where he begins a new life, becoming an important member of the local community over time. , is based in part on real events in the author’s life. Gregory David Roberts was convicted of a bank robbery in the 1980s and, like the protagonist of his novels, escaped from prison and hid in India. the book combines his real experiences with completely fictional events and under no circumstances should it be treated as an autobiography. Charlie Hunnam will play the main role in the series “Shantaram” (including “Sons of Anarchy”, “Pacific Rim” and “King Arthur : The Legend of the Sword “).

One of the main problems with “Shantaram” was the slow pace of writing the scripts. Writer Eric Warren Singer (known for his work on films such as “American Hustle” and “Top Gun: Maverick”), who would also act as the show’s showrunner, over the course of the year and a half. since he was hired by Apple, he managed to prepare only a general outline of the plot, but he did not complete the scripts of all episodes. Hannibal, “The Punisher,” and “Narcos.” Another problem was the bad weather conditions in India, where a large part of the series was filmed. Due to delays with the script and personnel changes, the film crew did not make it before the monsoon season began and had to wait for the weather to improve. Further delays were brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, which also forced the suspension of work on the series.

The premiere of the first three episodes of “Shantaram” is scheduled for October 14. More will be added to the Apple TV + catalog every week on Friday.
