“At Prime Video, our endeavor has been to create and showcase content that is just as diverse as our customers. Amazon Original Guilty Minds is our first legal drama and an exciting new addition to our library,” said Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals, Amazon Prime Video. “The series is our first collaboration with creator and director, Shefali Bhushan, who has presented an authentic and realistic portrayal of Indian courts through a variety of relatable cases. And, the phenomenal performances by our actors have breathed life into the narrative, making Guilty Minds a truly thrilling and compelling watch.”
“Guilty Minds for me is more than just a series based on two prolific lawyers who fight for justice and their clients. It is a representation of all that I’ve learned about the law through my family. Growing up, the Law was a constant topic of discussion on the dinner table at my house and I have always been intrigued by it. So, I wanted to present a realistic take on the legal system and Guilty Minds does that through the varied cases it explores.” said Shefali Bhushan, creator and director of Guilty Minds. “I couldn’t have found better collaborators than Amazon Prime Video for making this series and showcasing it to audiences worldwide. I hope the viewers will love it as much as I loved creating the series.”
Co-directed by Jayant Digambar Somalkar, and produced by Karan Grover, Antara Banerjee and Naved Farooqui, Guilty Minds will exclusively stream on Amazon Prime Video from April 22, 2022.
