‘Poacher’ puts spotlight on true crime story

Prime Video, India, has announced the premiere of Amazon Original crime series Poacher.

The first-ever television series produced by QC Entertainment, the Oscar-winning production and finance company responsible for feature film hits such as Jordan Peele’s Get Out and Spike Lee’s BlacKkKlansman. Poacher has been created, written and directed by Emmy-award-winning filmmaker Richie Mehta, and boasts of a diverse and talented cast comprising Nimisha Sajayan, Roshan Mathew, and Dibyendu Bhattacharya in pivotal roles. The first three episodes of the eight-episode series premiered at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, where it received highly positive appreciation from the viewers.

Poacher is set to premiere exclusively on Prime Video in India and across more than 240 countries and territories worldwide on February 23. Based on court documents and testimonials, the production is a fictional dramatisation of events that transpired in the dense forests of Kerala and the concrete jungle of Delhi. The series showcases the immense contributions made by Indian forest service officers, NGO workers from the Wildlife Trust of India, police constables, and good samaritans who risked their lives to investigate the largest ivory poaching ring in Indian history.

To uphold the story’s authenticity, Poacher has been filmed in real-life settings in Kerala and New Delhi and unfolds primarily in Malayalam, Hindi and English. The series is executive produced by QC Entertainment’s Edward H. Hamm Jr., Raymond Mansfield and Sean McKittrick. Alan McAlex serves as producer for Suitable Pictures. Also from Delhi Crime are Director of Photography Johan Aidt, composer Andrew Lockington and editor Beverley Mills.
